Leicester City’s Ndidi anticipates ‘difficult’ Tottenham Hotspur clash

The Foxes welcome the Lillywhites to the King Power and the 22-year-old is expecting a stern test against Mauricio Pochettino's charges

Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is anticipating a ‘difficult’ encounter against Tottenham Hotspur in Tuesday’s English Premier League encounter.

The Foxes, currently 12th in the English Premier League standings, are without a win in their last three games heading into the clash against the north London outfit.

And, although, the Nigeria international admitted it would be tough against Mauricio Pochettino’s side, he believes Claude Puel’s side can rise to the occasion and get maximum points in front of their home supporters.

“I have never looked too much at the opposition,” Ndidi told LCFC TV.

“We know they are a good team so it will be very difficult.

“That makes it difficult, a team who has just won once in four games will be difficult because they will want to win so we should expect that and do more to get three points.

“Every game at home, the fans are very crucial for us.

“We need three points because it feels like a while since our last win. We can do it if we play well and follow the coach’s instructions.”

Ndidi has started all 13 games in the Premier League games for Leicester so far this term.

And the former Genk enforcer will be looking to help the Foxes get a positive result when Tottenham visit the King Power on Tuesday evening.
