Fans troll Ndidi after he was embarrassed by Kante in Leicester’s loss to Chelsea
The Nigerian international returned to the club after the international break but couldn’t help the Foxes avoid losing to the Blues
Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is the joke of fans on social media after losing his fight to France international Ngolo Kante.
The Nigerian international replaced Kante at Leicester in 2017 after the French international joined Chelsea in 2016.
When Ndidi joined Leicester, Kante was the best defensive midfielder in the world and he is still considered the best by some today.
But Ndidi’s achievements for the foxes since replacing the world champion have also brought him into conversation.
And before the two teams met on Saturday afternoon, some fans argued for Ndidi as the better player between the two.
The Nigerian international, however, was second-best throughout the encounter when Kante pitched a midfield championship to help Chelsea to a 3-0 win and a six point lead at the top of the Premier League thanks to goals from Antonio Rudiger , Ngolo Kante and Christian Pulisic.
The World Cup winner had a pass accuracy of 85%, while he also made two interceptions and two tackles. He managed three shots on target, one ending in the back of the net, which happens to be Chelsea’s second.
In contrast, Ndidi had only 67% accuracy, made two tackles and only one interception. But the climax of their fight was when Ndidi slipped after being embarrassed by Kant’s body movement.
After the game, fans couldn’t resist trolling him for that particular moment in the game.

Edge only used NDIDI to wipe the playing field. Do you want to continue the comparisons? #CORPSE

That moment when Kante turned Ndidi upside down 😭 .. I’m sorry, my compatriot

Someone said before this game that Ndidi was a better tackler and better at catching than N’golo Kante.
Because I’m Nigerian, that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t be telling the truth.
How did it go today

Meanwhile, Ndidi’s compatriot Kelechi Iheanacho came at halftime, but could not save Brendan Rodger’s male defeat either.
