‘Leicester will not have complacency’ - Maddison

Mon 04 January 2021 | 13:13

Leicester’s midfielder James Maddison believes his side’s significant away display is the courtesy of a great belief and not feeling smug.

Leicester

have sealed another

Premier League

victory, which is their seventh out of nine this season. The Foxes’ three points climbed them third on the table. Totally, they have gained 32 points and the only time they were beaten was against

Liverpool

and they have also drawn the clash against

Crystal Palace

.

James Maddison

has spoken after the 2-1 victory over

Newcastle

: “

I think our record away from home is brilliant, and it was no different.

“You come up against teams like Newcastle and we want to be winning those games.

“We’re going into the game as a big team and a team that knows that we should win, but also, at the same time, you can’t have that complacency, because that’s when you start to get bad results.”

The 24-year-old has found the target dancing past Newcastle’s shot-stopper Karl Darlow.

The goalscorer said: “

Jamie Vardy doesn’t actually get the credit he deserves for the amount of assists he gets. He gets a lot of assists and because he scores so many goals, it kind of goes under the radar.

“I can’t remember it too well, but I’m pretty sure Vards got in behind the left side and I was running in the box, but I was almost getting blocked by the defenders, the line of view to the pass.

“I kind of just stood still and hung out on the edge of the box, and Vards noticed my movement, and pulled it back brilliantly.

“He had that vision and then it was just a case of – that was when it felt like time stood still a bit, when it was rolling towards me – staying composed and getting a good contact on the ball and firing it in the net.

“Those types of finishes are what we practise in training, so when you see one come off, it’s always nice.”

Youri Tielemans

sealed the three points for his side when he met the back of the net 18 minutes to the end.

Maddison said: “

It probably wasn’t the best game for a neutral in the first half, I’d say, but we had to show patience, a bit of quality when the chances came and then resilience at the end, which we’ve shown this season.”
