Tottenham see James Maddison as Christian Eriksen replacement
James Maddison was the difference between Tottenham and Leicester City on Saturday.
The English midfielder scored the winner in the second half of a controversial game with VAR playing a huge role.
Tottenham should have been 2-0 up but Serge Aurier’s effort was ruled out as Son was, literally, millimetres offside.
That seemed to bring Leicester back in the game as Ricardo Pereira equalised minutes after the call and Maddison scored the winner.
Harry Kane had given us the lead with a well-taken goal, despite the Englishman losing his balance in the penalty box.
Maddison was the star of the show at the King Power Stadium and the Express (h/t Sky Sports) claims that we have identified the 22-year-old as Christian Eriksen’s potential replacement.
A quality addition to the Tottenham side
Maddison has been linked with Spurs in the past (h/t Football.london) and has continued impressing for Leicester under Brendan Rodgers.
The 22-year-old was also called up for the England side recently, and it will be interesting to see if Gareth Southgate hands him a start soon.
Spurs were poor in the second half of the game, and Christian Eriksen was left on the bench after his average showing against Olympiakos in midweek.
