James Maddison expects Leicester to come back firing

James Maddison expects Leicester to be firing on all cylinders when they return after the international break.

Brendan Rodgers was named as the new manager at King Power Stadium last month and after losing his first game in charge the former Celtic boss has enjoyed back-to-back victories against Fulham and Burnley.

Those results have propelled the Foxes back into the top half of the Premier League standings and a seventh-place finish remains a distinct possibility.

The feel-good factor seems to have returned to the Leicester squad and England Under-21 star Maddison feels his side will continue to impress.

Asked if Leicester have been building momentum since Rodgers’ appointment, Maddison said: “That’s it, I’ve said it since the manager came in.

“There was a lift at the club, whether that’s through training, new personnel coming in or new coaches. There has been a lift, it’s been obvious to see and I think that’s shown in our performances.

“Back-to-back wins in the Premier League is always a good thing and we can go into the international break a happy squad and come back ready and firing.”

Leicester’s first match after the international break will be a home clash with Bournemouth on March 30. The Foxes have not won three consecutive Premier League games since December 2017.

They are priced at 1.83 to achieve that feat against the Cherries, who are available at 4.33, while the draw is on offer at 3.75.
