Super Eagles ace Wilfred Ndidi has told is Leicester City teammates to be prepared to fight to the finish as the away tie against West Ham will not be tea party.
“It’s going to be a tough one,” Ndidi told the club’s website. “We’ll see what we can do. We’ve worked hard for it. We work hard for every game that comes ahead, so we’ll see what comes out of that game.
“Fingers crossed we can get something out of it so let’s go.”
The Foxes will be hoping to make it two wins in two league matches when they visit David Moyes’ men on Monday
Both teams started the 2021-22 league campaign on a winning note with the Hammers fighting back from a goal deficit to claim all three points against Newcastle United.
Leicester City also defeated Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-0, thanks to a first-half strike from Jamie Vardy.
While reviewing last Saturday’s win, Ndidi said he is still in awe of how Vardy finished Ricardo Pereira’s cross towards the end of the first-half.
“I still do not understand how Vards got there,” he continued. “Even during the game I was saying to Daniel [Amartey]: ‘I don’t understand how Vards got there and then dipped it into the goal!’.
“It was brilliant from Ricardo to get past those guys and then the cross. I still don’t understand how Vards got there. It was really good, that’s why he’s there, so we move.”
After the English star’s opener, Leicester City struggled to break Wolves’ defence in the second half and Ndidi admitted the win was a morale-boosting result for them.
