Speaking after the clash, Ndidi said that his team had to react after the Blues went in front.
“It’s a mixed feeling, you know. We tried a couple of times in training with Madders [Maddison] and he told me I was going to score,” he said.
“We actually put a poor first half aside, and we were asked to push up and forget about the one goal they scored, and we just had to react.”
On giving away possession to Mason Mount for Chelsea’s goal, he said: “It’s football.
“I just try to move on. No, I did not [know Mount was there].”
