The Portuguese attacker went one better than the hat-trick he scored in real life against the Foxes, when he sealed a 4-3 Premier League victory at Molineux in 2018/19.
Ndidi went straight up the other end and equalised with Kelechi Iheanacho, but Jota then scored five times without reply including three successive goals with his own player.
Jota reflected: "I think probably I know of the game than him [Ndidi]. I’m an attacker so I’m always looking to score goals instead of defending. That’s my style of play."
Ndidi said: "I think he can actually win the tournament. He’s really good. I’m not up to that standard yet, but at least I learned a few things. He’ll go far."
