Former Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Paul Robinson has lauded James Maddison’s outstanding performance for his former club in their recent victory against Burnley. Maddison, who scored a goal during Tottenham’s 5-2 triumph at Turf Moor, is making a significant impact since his arrival at the club.
Robinson shared his thoughts on Maddison’s contributions in an interview on Sky Sports News, stating, “It was always going to be difficult when Harry Kane left, but the players that he’s brought in… James Maddison, for example, was outstanding again at the weekend.”
Maddison’s recent goal adds to his impressive tally, with the attacking midfielder directly involved in four goals in as many Premier League appearances this season. His remarkable start to life in north London is drawing well-deserved attention.
Under the management of Ange Postecoglou, Tottenham is enjoying a successful spell, currently occupying the second position in the Premier League table, trailing champions Manchester City by just two points. Maddison’s performances have earned him praise from various quarters, including former Premier League striker Tony Cascarino, who described him as “absolutely superb” since his summer transfer from Leicester City.
However, James Maddison is not the only standout performer among Tottenham’s recent acquisitions. Goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario has also garnered positive reviews for his contributions to the team.
Statistical data from FBref reveals that the Italian goalkeeper has made an impressive 15 saves in the Premier League this season, placing him just outside the top five shot-stoppers in the league. While Tottenham has conceded goals in recent matches against Brentford and Burnley, there is room for improvement in the team’s defensive performance.
Nevertheless, Vicario’s early displays suggest promise, and he is quickly adapting to his role in the team. The same can be said for Maddison, who has seamlessly settled into life at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, impressing both fans and pundits alike with his performances on the pitch.
