Super Eagles forward, Wilfred Ndidi has finally returned from injury but was benched in Leicester City’s game against Arsenal on Saturday.

Ndidi, who had been away since September due to injury, made a return to the matchday squad and could not be used throughout the game.

Kelechi Iheanacho played a late substitute role for the Foxes, who were comfortably beaten 2-0 at the King Power Stadium by Arsenal.
