Leicester City got another Premier League win under their belt this weekend as they saw off Huddersfield Town 3-1 at the King Power.
It was a deserved win for the Foxes, who had to come from behind to beat the Terriers, and it’s safe to say that Leicester fans have one man in particular to thank for the performance.
That man? New summer signing James Maddison, who has been in quite superb form for the Foxes since making his move to the club from Norwich.
As it stands, the fee paid for Maddison, thought to be in the region of around £25m, looks an absolute bargain, and the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool will no doubt be kicking themselves for missing out on such a prestigious talent.
Maddison’s ability was always there for all to see last term with Norwich, but his transition into Premier League life has been quite superb, as his free kick demonstrated perfectly this weekend.
It’s amazing really that we see the likes of United and Liverpool spending such big sums on players who are unproven and relatively unknown in the English game, while players like Maddison are allowed to slip through the net and join relatively mid-level clubs like Leicester.
Maddison could well go on to become on of the stars of the Premier League in the next few seasons, and both United and Liverpool will need to pay quite the sum if they do want to eventually see themselves with the young England midfielder in their squads.
How good is Maddison? Can he go on to be a Premier League great? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
