Ndidi Better Than Kante for sure! I’m not saying so because I’m a Nigerian but because the Premier League has acknowledged Wilfred Ndidi won most tackles in the English topflight so far this season.
Ndidi has racked up 80 successful tackles to place first ahead of Everton defensive midfielder Idrissa Gueye as well as the player he replaced at the Foxes, N’Golo Kante who has won 60 tackles.
The Leicester City player joined the club from Racing Genk in January 2017 on a five-and-a-half-year contract for a secret fee, rumored around 17 million Euros minus performance-related incentives.

Ndidi is having an excellent season, starting and completing all games played by the Foxes in the Premier League, apart from the 3-0 loss to Crystal Palace in which he was sent off on the hour mark.
The 21-year-old is also important to the Nigerian national team and has been tipped to star at the 2018 World Cup. He has played the Super Eagles’ last 7 games, as well as the 1-0 win over Poland Friday night.
Rumors are rife that Ndidi is on the radar of Liverpool ahead of the transfer window reopening. With thi kind of rumor in the pipeline you can now see why I holla Ndidi Better Than Kante!?
