#2 James Maddison (England)

Liverpool FC v Leicester City - Premier League
Liverpool FC v Leicester City - Premier League

Four games gone, and you'd wonder why James Maddison wasn't muscled into the England playing XI last month. Well, he's now elevated his performances at the King Power to such a degree that Gareth Southgate was forced to leave out stars from Russia 2018 to accommodate the adroit number 10.

He was included last month, but did not feature at all. This time though, in a relatively cooler fixture against bottom-placed Bulgaria after the Czech Republic game, Southgate could be tempted to throwing Maddison off the bench, if not hand him a full debut.

What does he bring to the table? Pretty much everything. The former Norwich City midfielder has taken the Premier League by storm this season, and been a hallmark behind Leicester City's solid start to the new campaign.

He's got an immaculate skill set, a burgeoning ability to pick a pass and more so, he does it at a consistent rate. Maddison works hard off the ball, dictates his fellow forwards during the press and has a stellar eye for goal.
