Leicester City set a new record for the English Premier League’s biggest-ever away win, and they surpassed their own record for their most convincing Premier League triumph, which was previously set against Newcastle United earlier this season.
Wilfred Ndidi was exceptional in the heart of midfield during the 9-0 win over Southampton on Friday, Futbalgalore.com reports.
His performance has earned him rave reviews from former West Ham, Everton and England striker Tony Cottee, who scored almost 300 goals during a superb 19-year career.
Tony Cottee told LCFC Radio at the full-time whistle: “Well, I’m struggling because I would have given it to Harvey Barnes, but he came off, I’d love to give it to Ayoze Pérez because he got a hat-trick, I’d love to give it to Jamie Vardy because he got a hat-trick, but I’m going to give it to Wilfred Ndidi.
“He was involved in everything that went on. Youri Tielemans was fantastic and there were some superb performances. I’m going to go for Ndidi, but I could have given it to anybody. The only one I couldn’t give it to was Kasper Schmeichel, because he’s had nothing to do!”
Attentions will now turn to Tuesday night’s Carabao Cup Fourth Round tie with Burton Albion at Pirelli Stadium (7:45pm kick-off).
