Wilfred N’didi makes up for mistake, but admits he lost Mason Mount

Leicester City’s villain turned hero, Wilfred N’didi admitted in an interview that he did not know where Mason Mount was.

After playing a huge role towards both goals in Leicester City’s 1-1 tie with Chelsea, Wilfred N’didi admitted to Sky Sports in an interview, that he did not know where Mason Mount was.

“It’s football. I just try to move on. No, I did not [know Mount was there].”

“We actually put a poor first half aside, and we were asked to push up and forget about the one goal they scored, and we just had to react,” he added.

Unai Emery offers Mesut Ozil hope over Arsenal role

Unai Emery has offered Mesut Ozil hope of a return to his line-up by stating he's got the required quality for Arsenal's upcoming matches.

“It’s still under his feet with his [Wilfred Ndidi] first touch, it should have been a wee bit stronger so it’s out of his feet, and he could have played it two-touch. But give credit to Mason Mount who is after him, smelled blood and got after him.”

“But for Ndidi accepting the ball in that situation, you’ve got to assume, worst case scenario, ‘someone’s coming at me’, and he didn’t, he thought he had more time than he actually did.”

All was forgiven in the second half however, when N’didi headed home the equalizer. Setting Leicester on their way to a very strong finish to the game. Just lacking the quality in the final third, to go on and win the game
