Ndidi Impresses As Leicester Win Villa To Go Second

Leicester City defeated Aston Villa 1-2 on Sunday to go second in the Premier League, for a few hours at least.

James Maddison and Harvey Barnes scored the goals to put Brendan Rodgers' side seven points behind leaders Manchester City and three points above Manchester United, who can reclaim second when they play Newcastle later.

Manchester City can restore their advantage to 10 points if they win at Arsenal in the day's other match.
