Wilfred Ndidi was impressive in Leicester’s 2-0 win against Sunderland at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night.

He was replaced in the 82nd minute with Andy King.

It is the fifth victory on the spin for Craig Shakespeare since he took over from sacked Claudio Ranieri.

The first half was an absolute barn burner. Sunderland were more dangerous going forward and asked plenty of questions of the Leicester defence in the first 45 minutes.

However, the hosts were stubborn defensively and strong on the counter-attack but not able to offer much else going forward.

Marc Albrighton swung a right-footed cross over from the left, picked out Islam Slimani who glanced a header home in the 69th minute to break the deadlock.

Jamie Vardy absolutely leathered the ball into the roof of the net to extend the Foxes’ lead in the 78th minute.

Vardy has now scored seven goals in his last nine appearances for club and country.

Leicester City have now move up to 10th on the EPL table, while Sunderland remain eight points from safety at the bottom of the Premier League table.
