Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is raring to go as they prepare to take on Atletico Madrid in a first leg Champions League quarter-final clash.

Ndidi who has been a key player in Leicester City’s recent resurgence is ready to help his teammate make history.

Leicester City beat Sevilla to qualify for the quarterfinals and Ndidi believes only a repeat of that performance can help the Foxes against Atletico.

"It was really amazing because right from the start we spoke to ourselves and said we need to try to be warriors [against Sevilla]," Ndidi told Goal.

"That’s the only way we could win. We had to go out and do everything we wanted.

"The atmosphere was nice but we just had to leave it and focus on the game. We all like winning games here, especially a big game like this."

The 20-year was absent with a minor groin problem for Leicester City’s 4-2 loss at Everton but manager Craig Shakespeare has revealed that the midfielder is fine.

Wilfred Ndidi is fine. He trained partly yesterday and he’ll take part in the whole session today,” Shakespeare said in the press conference ahead of the Champions League game.

“Hopefully he’ll come through that okay, which is what we’re expecting.”
