‘It’s going to be a tough one’ – Leicester City’s Ndidi wary of Everton threat

Wilfred Ndidi says Leicester City will tread cautiously when they lock horns with Everton in Wednesday’s Premier League clash.

Having silenced Brighton and Hove Albion 3-0 in their last outing, victory for Brendan Rodgers’ men at the King Power Stadium could see them move to the summit of the Premier League – provided the tie between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur end in a stalemate.

The Nigeria international is expected to play a role in the fixture against Carlo Ancelotti’s men and he is not shying away from the threat posed by the Toffees.

"It’s a game which is going to be really tough because, obviously, it’s Everton,” Ndidi told LCFC TV.

“They’re a very good team. The manager is good also. It’s a different game from Brighton, but we know that already. It’s going to be a tough one, but we’re looking forward to it."

"In the Premier League, you get different teams, but as a team in the Premier League, you have to be ready for it. We, as Leicester, we’re ready for anything that comes.

“It’s been good, but we don’t get too comfortable. In the Premier League, any team can beat any team, but it’s good to have that confidence when you win.

"We’ll see how it goes. The manager will name the team and then we’ll see what happens.”

Ndidi is back in Leicester City’s squad after spending time on the sidelines due to an adductor injury. Nevertheless, he is eager to build upon his level of match fitness.

"It was great that we won," he continued. "The team comes first and it was good for us to win that game, but for me personally, it’s all okay because I’m coming back from injury.

"I’m just trying to get my fitness back and get back into the game as quickly as I can. Coming back from injury doesn’t mean I have to start slow, I’m just trying to give my best for the team.

"The fitness comes from training and playing games and I’ve been working hard and it’s something that adds up for fitness in the games."

Everton come into the match having beaten Chelsea 1-0 at Goodison Park on Saturday.
