    What a bright future for this very young Prince, adorable and majestic Ndidi of Nigeria. We love you and God loves more. Ride on bro.

  • Drop that record on the number of fouls to brush off opportunistic opponents.

    I’m more concerned about the way he distributes the ball. He wins the ball most times, with robust, accurate technique but when he gets the ball, his passes aren’t great. If he can work on this, then Mikel can retire today from SE

    Ndidi has been joining the attack more recently, which is great. Thanks to his long legs and height also popping up in the box for corner kicks. What he needs to add are dribbling skills, which is where Dembele has an edge. But all depends on the pattern a club plays. Leicester depend too much on a “kick and rush” strategy, targeting their Speed King, Vardy. This makes it impossible for the midfield to hold on to the ball and think.
