Former Tottenham player and manager Tim Sherwood, speaking at a Sky Sports Golf day ahead of the Ryder Cup, said of James Maddison…
‘I think he’s done well up to now, and I definitely saw him do well for Leicester previously, but then it has tailed off. I think with better players around him now I think he can keep that level and that consistency.
‘When you’re playing for a big side like Tottenham and you need to be the main man – I think he has the character to be able to do it, and I just hope that the other players around him can help to keep that level of performance going, because he makes such a difference when he’s on the ball.
‘He’s the man who opens the door, he drops the shoulder, he can disguise a pass and nick goals as well. I’m very encouraged by the way that he’s started, and I think you must give the manager a lot of credit for that.
‘I think a draw would be a decent result for Tottenham – they won’t be going there looking for a draw because of the way Postecoglou wants to set them out, they’ll play a very open game, but Arsenal at home will be veery dangerous. I see Arsenal scoring, but I also see Tottenham scoring so I’m going to go for a 1-1 draw.’
