Wilfred Ndidi’s goal in Leicester City’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea was his first away goal in the Premier League.
Mason Mount gave the Blues a seventh-minute lead no thanks to Ndidi’s howler at Stamford Bridge.

However, the Nigeria international went from villain to hero heading past Kepa Arrizabalaga to hand the Foxes a well-deserved away point.

Incidentally, the 22-year-old’s strike was his first goal away from home since his move from Genk in 2017. Also, it was just his fifth goal in 90 English top-flight encounters.
His last goal for the Foxes came in a 2-1 home defeat to Southampton on January 12.
