Wilfred Ndidi has started the new year just as he left off the old one - brilliantly.
The midfield general put in another impressive performance marshalling the middle of the field as Leicester City ran Newcastle ragged en route to their 3-0 win in their Premier League meeting on Wednesday evening.
The Super Eagle who moonlights also as a Fox, started in his 20th league game and could do no wrong
He won balls, intercepted, passes, filled lanes, recovered brilliantly and even had time to deliver a deft pass to midfield partner Hamza Choudhury who delivered the Foxes final goal in the 87th minute, with aplomb.
His all round performance was eye-catching and domineering, and such display that many observers of the game are now begining to forget who N'golo Kante is.
