Wilfred Ndidi

Agree. I think the fact that Maddison was so good he good overlooked but he had a great game today.

All Glen Hoddle could say is,  he has to be closer to one of spurs midfielders. 

 

...at the same time as making it sound like he's got a second job in a jam butty mine

He was fantastic today! Unlucky to have a goal ruled out, won basically everything and the real plus for me - his distribution was superb. He didn’t screw up the fast short passes and was pinging it around to build attacks. Honestly if he can do that every week he would be in the conversation for a true heir to Kante’s throne. In this system he basically has to do the work of two people and somehow he manages it. 

 

And to top it all off he’s a really nice guy too! Love players like this. Take a bow son!

 

 

He was my MOTM in the match ratings.

 

Thought he, Evans & Soyuncu were all outstanding.

Love Wilf.  One of my favourite players.  Great attitude.

 

You can forgive players a lot of things when they show courage and heart Which WIlf has in spades.

 

Warrior.

Absolutely brilliant performance. He's the key man really as his workrate in midfield allowed us to play a more attack-minded formation. He did the job of two DMs today.

Loved the bit where he beat a Spurs player with a nice bit of skill, then trod on the ball and lost it, then just ran back and won it back.

One of the best players so far, especially in terms of consistency. 

 

Feel like he's developed a serious amount this year, and we're beginning to see the rewards of it this season so far.

He was immense today. It seemed like he preferred to be in there on his own as he doesn't have to worry about anyone else. He jusr gets on with it and the ground he covers.

Gave Lamela a little too much space first half but BR sorted that out at HT. Unfortunate his Goals didn't stand because he deserved it.

The attackers will get the credit tonight, but Wilfred Ndidi absolutely bossed it! 7 tackles tonight despite Southampton never having the ball (Ricardo had 6). And did you see some of his passes? Someone has been going to the Andrea Pirlo school of long passing it seems.

 

The improvement in this player is insane. He's IMO in the conversation for best CDM in the league. Kante no longer plays that position (he is now more box to box) so only Fabinho for me is currently better.

Yep. He had a rough patch last year but he's come out the other side of that a much better player. Whilst Ricardo, Maddison and Söyüncü have been standouts this season, Wilf has probably been the pick of the bunch. As you say, the ability to pick a pass has improved massively but even the tackles he's winning now, he's taking the ball with him. I used to find his stats misleading in that sense but he's so much more commited in the tackle and it's paying off.

 

The boy is pretty special.

And also Strider; Kante has never been a Holding midfielder! The tactics oracle should know better! :D
