    Impressive James Maddison stat revealed after Leicester 0-Chelsea 0

    Leicester 0-Chelsea 0

    Leicester finished their 2018/19 season with a 0-0 draw at home to Chelsea.

    The Foxes ended the season with 52 points, landing themselves in 9th place.

    Leicester were seven points behind 7th place Wolves, a spot they really should be aiming for next season.

    7th place will earn Europa League football this year if Manchester City beat Watford in the FA Cup final.

    Maddison’s excellent debut season

    Brendan Rodgers did slightly improve Leicester’s form when he took over Claude Puel. But he will be properly judged once he has had a full summer to put his stamp on the side.

    One player Rodgers will no doubt be keen to keep hold of is James Maddison.

    Maddison signed for Leicester last summer from then Championship outfit, Norwich.

    Despite having no prior Premier League experience, Maddison has proven himself to be an excellent purchase.

    In 36 league outings for Leicester, the 22-year-old has scored seven and assisted seven.

    Also, after the Foxes’ final game of the season, a very impressive stat has come to light highlighting the youngster’s creativity.

    Maddison was the only player across all 20 clubs to create 100 goal scoring chances in the English top-flight this season.

    He was also the first English player to do so since the 2011/12 season when Everton’s Leighton Baines achieved a similar total.
