Quite the introduction

Regular viewers of the Championship last season would not have been surprised to see exhibit his natural talent in his Premier League debut at Old Trafford.

Leicester’s 21-year-old No10 did not look out of the place from the off and appeared unflinchingly confident in possession, even with the likes of Fred and Paul Pogba in close quarters.

The former Norwich midfielder forced David De Gea into an impressive save midway through the half and was at the heart of everything positive Leicester did after going behind to an early penalty.

Too good for the Championship

After much speculation linking him to several Premier League clubs, including Spurs and Liverpool, Maddison signed for Leicester in June for £24million.

For those who didn’t see much of him in the second tier last season, it was an eye-opening experience…

No player created more chances in the Championship last term than Maddison.

He scored 14 goals and provided eight assists for the Canaries and was deservedly named in the Team of the Year.

What’s that saying? Remember the name…
