EPL: Ndidi, Iheanacho help Leicester go second, Aina’s Fulham lose to Chelsea
Super Eagles midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi was in action for Leicester City in their victory over Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday.
Ndidi played all through the game while his compatriot, Kelechi Iheanacho played a substitute role, coming in for Jamie Vardy on 91 minutes.
Leicester defeated the Saints 2-0, with a James Maddison goal opening the scoring and a last-minute Harvey Barnes goal sealing the win in an exciting encounter at the King Power Stadium.
It was Youri Tielemans who assisted both scorers to score.
With the victory, the Foxes climbed to second in the table, two points above third-place Liverpool, who host leaders Manchester United on Sunday.
Earlier on Saturday, Super Eagles defender, Ola Aina was in action for Fulham, but failed to help his team win visiting Chelsea.
Fulham fell to a 1-0 defeat to the Blues, with a goal from Mason Mount sealing the victory over the hosts, who had Antonee Robinson sent off in the first half for a dangerous tackle on Cesar Azpilicueta.
