James Maddison Scores Sensational 25-Yard Strike To Put Leicester 3-1 Up Against Liverpool
James Maddison smashed in a worldie strike from 25 yards to put Leicester City 3-1 up against Liverpool at Anfield.
The Foxes No.10 assisted Jamie Vardy's first goal in the Carabao Cup quarter final at Anfield but then went one better by finding the net himself in stunning style in the 34th minute.
Maddison got a bit of luck with the way the ball bounced back to him after a ricochet from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
But he then unleashed a rasping shot that flew past Caoimhin Kelleher right in front of the Kop.
It was down the throat of the Liverpool goalkeeper but the power was too much for him to handle.

Maddison is something of an expert when it comes to long-range strikes and this will be right up there with his sweetest.
It restored Leicester's two-goal lead after Oxlade-Chamberlain had pulled one back for the hosts in the 19th minute.
In all competitions, Maddison has 12 goals and assists this term and is churning in performances that might just force Gareth Southgate to rethink his midfield options.

Meanwhile Vardy had shown he's not slowing down in the slightest with a brace inside 13 minutes and looked set to complete his hat-trick at the end of the first-half but his effort bounced against the inside of the post.
Leicester look good value to join Arsenal in the Carabao Cup semi-finals after the Gunners thrashed Sunderland 5-1 at the Emirates on Tuesday night.
