Leicester City’s James Maddison ranks a brilliant ninth in the English Premier League’s 2019/20 charting of all players, according to WhoScored.

Since moving to Leicester City, James Maddison hasn’t elevated his play or productivity at all: no, what he has done is take exactly the same type of quality from lesser divisions into the Premier League. In the meantime he’s become a footballing household name; in addition to now deservedly being an England international.

James Maddison rates extremely highly for Leicester City

WhoScored have developed a countdown to the EPL restart, by using their charts for this season’s English top-flight performers. According to their assessment system, Maddison has scored an impressive 7.34 so far in the current campaign. The Foxes playmaker enters at number nine, directly after tenth-placed Marcus Rashford of Manchester United.

Maddison’s statistics are laid out by the outlet: nine goals as well as three assists in all club competitions. With a more intricate analysis consisting of: 2.7 key passes; an 84 per cent passing success rate; 1.6 completed dribbles; fouled 2.9 times on average. He controls 1.9 passes poorly and is only dispossessed once a match.

This very notable showing by the Fox puts him in a special, elite bracket in the premiership; most set-piece specialists at top sides are that one in a million – or higher – embodiment of the archetypal, particularly skilled player.

These attributes and displays have reportedly made the former Norwich City player a wanted man. Man United are said to targeting “Madders” for a possible transfer.
