Super Eagles midfielder, Alex Iwobi and Wilfred Ndidi were at loggerheads as Leicester City defeated Everton 2-0 in Saturday’s Premier League clash, Abbeylivenetwork.com reports.
The Nigerian international who was making his 13th appearance, has bagged five assists and scored one goal.
Leicester went ahead courtesy of Youri Tielemans beautiful volley just before half-time and scored the second late on through Harvey Barnes after a brilliant counter-attack.
There were further concerns for Everton as Senegal midfielder Idrissa Gueye was substituted at half-time after struggling with what looked like a hamstring injury in the opening half.
Brendan Rodgers went with a 4-1-4-1 system with Frenchman Boubakary Soumare sitting just behind Maddison and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall and he played a big part in neutralising Everton’s threats before he was replaced by Nigerian midfielder Wilfred Ndidi 20 minutes from time.
However, his compatriot, Kelechi Iheanacho was missing in action as he was among the unused sub.
The defeat means Everton sit 15th on the league table while Leicester City sit 13th on 14 points.
