Two of the Premier League's top four sides meet on Tuesday evening as the season nears its climax and Nigeria international Ndidi says the Foxes' targets won't change, irrespective of venue or opposition, especially at such a pivotal moment in the campaign.

Looking ahead to tackling Ole Gunnar Solskjær's Red Devils, the 24-year-old told LCFC TV: "It’s one of those games. We have to try and do our best to get something out of it. We’ve got three games left, so it’s that part of the season where every point is really important.

"It’s a tough game. Obviously, the last time we met, we knocked them out of the FA Cup, but it’s going to be a difficult game. We’ll look forward to it and see what comes out of it. They’re a really good team, a really strong side. The players they have are top quality.

In the Premier League, it doesn’t matter if you’re playing Manchester United or another team, you’re just going for the points

They’ve really done well in the league and the Europa League. They will also want to finish as high as possible, which is how every team wants to finish the season. It’s something that means we have to go there, see what comes out of it, and we’ll give everything."

City have won 10 and lost just two of their away Premier League fixtures this season, but Ndidi says that success comes down to always taking the opposition seriously, regardless of where they are in the league table.

"In the Premier League, it doesn’t matter if you’re playing Manchester United or another team, you’re just going for the points," he added, speaking at LCFC Training Ground in Seagrave. "We’ve been on a fantastic run away from home.

"We’ve had some ups and downs and some games where we should have got more points, but we’re looking forward to this one and we’ll be trying as much as we can to get points. We’re in the last part of the season so every point is very important for us."

Goals: Leicester City 3 Manchester United 1

All the goals from King Power Stadium as the Foxes defeated the Red Devils 3-1 to reach the FA Cup Semi-Finals.

While the Foxes drew 2-2 with Man Utd back in December, they went on to defeat the North West outfit 3-1 in the quarter-finals of the Emirates FA Cup. Ndidi says Leicester can take confidence from that game and hopes City can build on that form against the 20-time champions. 

"It was a good, good feeling, playing against Manchester United," he continued. "It gave us good feelings and it was good for confidence. We have to prove ourselves on the pitch and play with confidence and work hard for it. Then we’ll see what comes out of it.

"At the end of the day, if it’s something good, then we’ll all be happy."
