Leicester City of England midfielder, Wilfred Onyinyen Ndidi has admitted that he and his teammates will be in for a tough game against Manchester United this Tuesday, because The Red Devils have top quality players, megasportsarena.com reports.
While also affirming that United are a really tough team to confront, the former Racing Genk of Belgium central defender-turned-holding-midfielder conceded that his side will have to be on their toes for the entire duration of the game at Old Trafford.
The Super Eagles’ star is, however, staying upbeat heading into the game, as Leicester were undefeated in their last two games against The Red Devils, drawing 2-2 back in December and beat them 3-1 in the quarter-finals of the English FA Cup in March.
Consequently, he is eagerly looking forward to Tuesday’s clash between both sides in the English Premier League, even as he admitted that the game will be difficult and a crucial test to his team’s nerves in the race to finish within the top-four this season.
While the title has been reserved for Manchester City, there is a fight for the remaining UEFA Champions League spots and The Foxes need to keep picking points, especially as they have three difficult games coming up against Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur before the season ends.
Heading into Tuesday’s fixture, United are favorites to win this season’s UEFA Europa League and Ndidi is quick to acknowledged that they are a team on top of their game, especially with the like of Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani looking good.
Ndidi told LCFC TV: “It’s a tough game. Obviously, the last time we met, we knocked them out of the FA Cup, but it’s going to be a difficult game. We’ll look forward to it and see what comes out of it. They’re a really good team, a really strong side. The players they have are top quality.
“They’ve really done well in the league and the Europa League. They will also want to finish as high as possible, which is how every team wants to finish the season. It’s something that means we have to go there, see what comes out of it, and we’ll give everything.”
