Wilfred Ndidi Sees Red As Leicester Thrash Brighton

The prolific midfielder Wilfred Ndidi was sent off for the second time in his career as Leicester City thrashed Brighton at the American Express Community Stadium.

The Nigeria international got the matching order in the 87th minute after a second bookable offense on Saturday.

With three minutes left in the match and the Foxes up 1-0, Ndidi fouled Shane Duffy and he was dismissed by referee Chris Kavanagh.

The 21-year-old was first cautioned in the 76th minute after he brought down Jose Izquierdo in the penalty area – but Kasper Schmeichel saved the resulting spot-kick taken by Glenn Murray.

In the closing seconds of the game, Jamie Vardy powered in the second goal of the evening as Claude Puel’s men side secured a vital away win.
