Two minutes before the interval, Jamie Vardy secured maximum points for the Foxes after netting his ninth league goal of the season.

“(Ndidi) is young and we don’t want to put too much pressure on him. He’s a humble boy and reminds a lot of Kante with his personality, ” Shakespeare told BBC Sport.

“[The] first goal was always going to be crucial and what a goal it was. Ndidi has done that before. He’s got that in his locker.”
