Six minutes later, Nigerian star Wilfred Ndidi handled the ball in the 18 yard box in which the referee had no choice than to award the hosts a penalty which was scored by Gylfi Sigurosson.

Wilfred Ndidi will now have to improve his game for Leicester City as Manchester United legend also blamed him for his side's defeat against Chelsea.

Kelechi Iheanacho scored for Leicester City in the 51st minute via a powerful header after a poor clearance by Mason Holgate, but the visitors were unable to net the goal that would have saved them from a defeat as Everton won the tie 2-1.
