Leicester boss Rodgers: Maddison among best talents in country

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers feels James Maddison is returning to his best.

Jamie Vardy scored for the first time in six games as his double helped Leicester beat Watford 4-2.

Maddison followed up his strike against Legia by scoring one and creating both Vardy goals on Sunday.

Rodgers hailed Maddison as a “real inspiration" after Leicester's first Premier League win for over a month and urged the 25-year-old playmaker to maintain his form.

He said: “When you see him at that level and that quality then he's one of the top talents in the country.

“It's about consistently doing it between now and the end of the season.

“He's keen after this little spell where it hasn't quite gone for him to show that consistency, mentality and workrate. When you get that you get a top player."
