Wilfred Ndidi is Leicester City's most consistent player this season, according to the club's manager, Claude Puel.

"Since the beginning of the season, Wilfred is the most consistent player because he plays well, he recovers a lot of ball", Puel told Leicester Mercury.

Last week, Leicester City kicked off their relatively easy run-in against relegation threatened Stoke City.

Bournemouth are 11th in the league with 32 points but can move to within a point of Leicester with a win at the King Power.

"But since the beginning of the season, he's improved a lot, he continues to work with good spirit in the training sessions, always correct".

"He can recover a lot of balls he is strong in the duels and he plays it simple with good quality, and gives our play a good start".

Sources told the Free Press his parents arrived on campus Friday morning to pick him up for spring break and were shot and killed. Told Byron, 'It's scary thinking about how easy a shooter can come into a college campus anywhere - a classroom, a library.

Ndidi's displays have inevitably seen him linked with other clubs but Puel is pleased to see speculation about another of his players and takes it as a compliment.

- The Foxes remain winless against Bournemouth in the Premier League (P6 W0 D5 L1) - the only other team they've played as often without winning in the competition is Bolton Wanderers (six games, no wins). Though they dominated throughout, the Foxes just couldn't get it done in a 1-1 draw.

Leicester almost gave themselves a mountain to climb as half-time approached when Harry Maguire's backpass was intercepted by Callum Wilson - but Schmeichel spared his team-mate's blushes and kept his team in the match with a touch to deny the striker.

"I think it is also a good thing to have players of this quality in the interests of the team".

The Japan worldwide has missed the last three Leicester matches with a knee injury, however, he has returned to training and has been progressing well.

Shinji Okazaki is the only injury of note this week.
