Ndidi splendid as Leicester beat Brighton 2-0


Leicester City on Saturday bounced back from their dramatic 4-3 defeat by Arsenal on the opening day of the season.

Nigerian Wilfred Ndidi put in a good shift in the middle of the pack as Leicester outclassed newly promoted Brighton & Hove Albion at the King Power Stadium.

Shinji Okazaki found the net for the second week running in the first minute of the game.

The Japanese striker is just one goal from equalling his Premier League tally for the whole of the 2016/17 campaign.

Harry Maguire got his first goal for the Foxes after he rose the highest in the box to head Riyad Mahrez’s corner beyond the dive of Mat Ryan to double Leicester’s lead.

The Nigerian duo of Ahmed Musa and Kelechi Iheanacho were unlisted for the game.
