EPL: Ndidi stars, Iheanacho subbed on in Leicester victory; Spurs, Everton win

Super Eagles duo of Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho were both in action at the King Power Stadium on Saturday when they sealed a 2-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

While Ndidi played from the start to finish, Iheanacho was brought in in the 82nd minute for goalscorer James Maddison.

The Foxes had kicked off their season with a 2-1 loss to Manchester United last weekend, but went ahead of Wolves via a 29th-minute own goal by Matt Doherty.

Maddison doubled their lead at the stroke of half time, but the hosts ended the game with 10 men, as English striker Jamie Vardy was sent off on 66 minutes.
