Midfielder Wilfred Ndidi and his Leicester City club were on the losing side as they suffered a 2-1 defeat to Southampton on Saturday.

Ndidi got on the scoresheet in the 58th minute, but that was not enough to save his side from defeat as the damage was already done in the first half.

Inside the King Power Stadium, James Ward-Prowse gave Southampton an early lead from the penalty spot after Long was bundled over in the area by Nampalys Mendy.

Saints defender Yan Valery was then shown a second yellow card for a foul on Marc Albrighton but Ireland striker Long doubled their lead just before half-time with his first Southampton goal in 22 appearances.

The three points lift Southampton above Newcastle and Cardiff into 16th place.

Leicester meanwhile drop one place to eighth.
