Carragher Labels Maddison Premier League's Most Influential Player

Carragher Labels Maddison Premier League's Most Influential

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has labelled James Maddison the most influential player in the Premier League this season after he scored in Tottenham's 2-0 win over Fulham.

Maddison slotted home confidently to double Spurs lead in the second half after he was teed up by Heung-Min Son, who put the hosts in front on Monday night.

The English playmaker's goal was his first at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and his third of the season since he joined Spurs from Leicester City for £40 million in the summer.

"For me, he's been probably the most influential player in the Premier League," Carragher said. "I think he has been that influential.

"The credit has to go to the manager. It's his philosophy, his way of playing, but he (Maddison) has been a major part of that.

"He has come in and taken the No 10, Harry Kane's shirt, possibly the greatest player to have played for Tottenham. I think at one stage early on he had the captain's armband on.

"He is just that type of personality. Sometimes, taking a step up to a bigger club, that scrutiny is too much for players, they can't actually handle it. 

"It's not their ability, it's their mentality. He can. He has embraced going to a bigger club, doing interviews with us, being in the spotlight. He absolutely loves it."
