Wilfred Ndidi ranked Premier League’s third-best tackler

Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi has continued to turn heads in the Premier League with solid performances.

Renowned for his remarkable artistry in the middle of the park, the Nigerian is becoming a barricade for opposing sides.

Ndidi’s relentless work rate, tackles and interceptions haven’t gone unnoticed for Leicester City thus far.

According to stats released by England’s top tier on Tuesday, the 22-year-old has racked up 56 tackles – the third most in the division.

Only Everton’s Idrissa Gueye and Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka have garnered more with 61 apiece.

Ndidi’s number is even more impressive considering he achieved it in fewer games.
