Leicester City manager, Brendan Rodgers, was full of praise for Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi, after his fine display in the 4-0 defeat to Liverpool on Thursday.

Liverpool beat their closest challengers to the title at the King Power Stadium on Boxing Day to open up a 13-point lead at the top of the table.

It was a brace from Roberto Firmino and additional tallies from James Milner and Trent Alexander-Arnold that secured Jurgen Klopp’s side their seventeenth win in 18 Premier League matches.

Ndidi started and was in action for ninety minutes while his compatriot Kelechi Iheanacho did not take part in the matchday eighteen showdown with Klopp's side.

Speaking to the press after the game, Rodgers reserved special praise for the Nigeria international midfielder.

“We couldn’t really feed Jamie with any pass or any quality of pass, so that’s the big frustration of the evening.

“Wilfred Ndidi was fantastic throughout – fighting, running, working, getting on the ball – but we just didn’t have long enough periods with it.

“So like I said when you don’t against a top team like I said before they are world champions and of course it becomes difficult for you.”
