Leicester's Ndidi Was Better Than Kante, Fabregas, Bakayoko Against ChelseaWilfred Ndidi was rated the best midfielder on both teams in Chelsea's Premier League clash against Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.

The Nigeria international's standout moment in the goalless draw against the Blues was in the opening fifteen minutes when his header was clawed away by goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

In the player ratings by Leicester Mercury, Ndidi had the highest score, eight from a possible ten, along with defender Harry Maguire.

''The best midfielder on the pitch. Combative but also his distribution was very good. 8,'' Rob Tanner wrote.

Against Chelsea, Ndidi had one shot on target, 82 touches, 56 passes, passing accuracy 85.7 percent, made five tackles, won two fouls and conceded one foul.

Riyad Mahrez, N'Golo Kante, Fabregas and Bakayoko were among the midfielders in action at Stamford Bridge.
