Leicesters Nigerian Midfeilder Wilfred Ndidi was named the BBCLeicester Man of the Match for his outstanding display in Leicester Citys humiliating 3-0 loss to Manchester United
The Premier League champions Leicester are as a result of the defeat just one point above the relegation zone and are still searching for a first league win in 2017.
In a dull dour match, the 20 year old Nigerian Ndidi was the only Leicester city player that turned up and seemed like taking the fight to Manchester United in a tepid uninspiring lackluster performance from Claudio Raineris men
The defending champions were 2 -0 down just before the break as United scored twice in two minutes first from Henrikh Mkhitaryan before Zlatan Ibrahimovic then took advantage of some slack defending to side-foot home his 15th Premier League goal of the season. Juan Mata got the 3rd in the 2nd half
The entire Leicester team were woeful and quickly had their heads down apart from Ndidi who at some point took Manchester United record Signing and worlds most expensive footballer Paul Pogba to the cleaners after striding past Pogba through midfield leaving the frenchman no choice but to bring him down on the edge of the box
The BBCs Matt Elliot a former defender and Leicester defender Captain and now an analyst for BBC Radio Leicester gave the Nigerian International top marks of all the players in the encounter
This is the 2nd time Ndidi is picking up the award after winning it in his debut match in Leicester’s 2-1 win over Everton in the FA cup
