The midfielder has made more tackles and more interceptions than any player in Europe’s top leagues this season
By Ben McAleer for WhoScored

Leicester City have more points now than they did at this stage of the 2015-16 season, when they went on to win the title. They are unlikely to repeat that 5,000-1 success, but they are giving Liverpool the closest run for their money. After a run of five straight victories in which they have conceded just one goal, Leicester are second in the table a point above defending champions Manchester City.

Brendan Rodgers is doing a fantastic job. Since he joined the club in February, only Liverpool (65) and City (58) have picked up more points than Leicester (46). Winning their second title in five years – and the second in their history – may prove a stretch, but qualifying for the Champions League is a realistic target.

Rodgers deserves all the praise that has come his way, as do attacking duo Jamie Vardy and James Maddison. Vardy is the top scorer in the league with 12 goals and Maddison’s fine form earned him his first England cap earlier this month. At the back, Caglar Soyuncu and Jonny Evans have formed a solid partnership, with the departure of Harry Maguire barely noticeable. Leicester have conceded just eight goals in their 13 games so far, the fewest in the league. They have not conceded a goal in their last four matches.

Vardy, Maddison and Soyuncu have made the most headlines but the unheralded star of the show is the tough tackling Wilfred Ndidi. Leicester signed the midfielder from Genk for £15m in January 2017 in the hope he would replace N’Golo Kanté as the ballwinner in the middle of the park. The Nigeria international enjoyed a decent start to life in Leicester, but he has really taken his game to the next level this season under Rodgers. He protects the defence and allows the attacking players to thrive. All in all, the 22-year-old has become the perfect foundation for Leicester to excel in Rodgers’ favoured 4-1-4-1 formation.

All I have to say is,...FINALLY! Someone understands the real deal behind Leicester. Ndidi is the heart of that Leicester team, the same way Gatuso was the heart of the great Milan teams, or Roy Keane was the heart of the great ManU teams.

Ndidi does his job however with little fan fair, but he is the one player Leicester cannot afford to lose in that lineup.

Just look at this graphic on the most tackles in Europe:

If that doesnt show that Ndidi is now officially World Class, I dont know what will.

Leave them. They will all come to realization sooner or later. The boy is WORLD CLASS. Worth two players on the field. But most people need external validation to see
