Super Eagles midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi produced yet another five-star performance in the Premier League as Leicester City played a 2-2 draw at home to Manchester United, AOIFootball.com reports.

Off the back of a fantastic display against Tottenham last week where he made amazing 17 recoveries, the 24-year-old started his 6th Premier League game of the season with the Foxes hoping to close the gap on leaders Liverpool.

The visitors were however the brighter side from the start and could have gone ahead after just two minutes but a nervy moment from Marcus Rashford saw the England international head high with the goal post at his mercy.

Rashford then made amends for his earlier miss when he put the Red Devils ahead on 23 minutes keeping his composure to fire home from a split pass from Bruno Fernandes.

Ndidi then helped Leicester back into the game as he disposed Bruno Fernandes after the half hour mark before feeding James Maddison who then squared for Harvey Barnes to release a superb left foot to make it 1-1.

Second half substitute Edison Cavani then set up Bruno Fernandes to make it 1-2 to Manchester United on 79 minutes before the hosts stole a late point 5 minutes from time when Axel Tuanzebe put through his own goal to make it 2-2.

The game further solidifies Ndidi’s supremacy as the best defensive midfielder in the EPL as he made 7 tackles, the most by any Leicester City player, earning a game rating of 7.1, completing 83% of his passes, winning 10 duels, and also making 3 interceptions.
