Super Eagles star Wilfred Ndidi has been named Man Of The Match after Leicester City’s 2-0 away win at Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League game on Sunday.

Leicester announced Ndidi as the best player on their verified Twitter handle.

Ndidi beat off competition from Jamie Vardy, Wesley Fofana and Marc Albrighton for the award.

The Nigerian midfielder polled 42 per cent of the votes by the club fans while Vardy was second with 39 per cent.

In third place is Fofana with 12 per cent and Albrighton got seven per cent.

Ndidi put up a brilliant display to frustrate both Heung-Min Son’s and Harry Kane’s efforts.

He made 19 recoveries against Spurs, the most any player has made in a single Premier League in over a year.

A Vardy penalty and an own goal by Toby Alderwereld secured Brendan Rodgers’ first ever win against Jose Mourinho.

The win took Leicester to second position on 27 points and are four points behind leaders Liverpool.
