Ndidi played the whole 90 minutes and helped the Foxes in midfield with his defensive abilities. 
His compatriot and teammate Kelechi Iheanacho was not listed for the game. 

Leon Balogun (Brighton & Hove)

Super Eagles defender Leon Balogun also played 90 minutes in a tough 1-1 draw at home to Arsenal
Balogun came into Brighton’s starting XI with the absence of Lewis Dunk who was sent off in Brighton’s previous game at Bournemouth. 
The Nigeria international seemed rattled in the early minutes but overcame his nerves to out in a decent performance. 
A misplaced pass near the Brighton’s box led to the Arsenal goal while he was also caught in possession a couple of times. 
But he and his teammates managed to hold the Gunners to a 1-1 draw. 

Alex Iwobi (Arsenal) 

Balogun faced his Super Eagles teammate Alex Iwobi who replaced Mesut Ozil at halftime. Iwobi didn't get enough for the ball and couldn't bring enough impact that Unai Emery hoped for. 

Isaac Success (Watford)
