Statistics, both previous and recent indicates that Nigerian International Wilfred Ndidi is currently the best Central Defensive Midfielder in English Premier League.

His impressive stats so far this season did not go unnoticed by a fan account at @TheLCFCStatMan.

According to the account, Wilfred Ndid has won most tackles (35) and most interceptions (26) in the whole league after eight games. This stats was further backed up by WhoScored which according to them, the 22-year old averages five tackles per game as well as 3.7 interceptions per match.

The only player closest to that feat is Watford's Etienne Capoue with an average of 3.3 interceptions per game. Ndidi has been the best tackler in the Premier League for two consecutive seasons and seems to be going for a third straight. No one does it better than him, definitely on a league of his own.
