James Maddison Holds A Very Impressive Stat In His First Season In The Premier League

Leicester City paid £20 million for the services of James Maddison in the summer window but it could turn it to be a bargain for the Foxes.

More impressive, however, is the fact that no other player in the league has created more chances than Maddison this season.

England have been crying out for a playmaker type for quite some time now and he could be the answer. He was called up to Gareth Southgate's squad for games against Spain and Croatia in October but didn't end up on taking to the pitch.

However, a strong series of performances for his club will mean it surely won't be long before he's regularly playing on the international stage.
