Foxes duo praised by boss
Brendan Rodgers was impressed with Leicester duo James Maddison and Caglar Soyuncu in their win over Huddersfield on Saturday.
Whilst Jamie Vardy was getting all the plaudits after he equaled Gary Lineker's goal-scoring record for the club, manager Rodgers was full of praise for the relatively unsung duo as well as his striker.
Maddison's superb second-half free-kick sealed the points for the Foxes, while Turkey defender Soyuncu made his first appearance since December.
"He's an outstanding talent," Rodgers said of Maddison, who displayed the quality which earned him a call-up into England's senior squad last October.
"He's a better player than I thought he was. I'd seen him at Aberdeen when he was up on loan in Scotland, when I was at Celtic, and he had talent.
"But actually coming into work with him, what he has is a hunger, he's not just a good player, he's hungry to be a better player.
"His free-kicks, he works on them every day, so it's not by accident. You've seen his goal a few weeks ago from that range.
"But he does what he's asked to do in his job, which is create goals and score goals."
Rodgers handed Soyuncu his first appearance of the year as a replacement for Jonny Evans, who missed out due to a hip injury.
"I think a special mention to Cags our centre-half," added Rodgers, who confirmed he opted not to select England defender Harry Maguire following the birth of his baby daughter this week.
"He (Soyuncu) was only told (on Saturday) morning he was playing. Apart from a loose pass at the end when he was tired, I thought he was outstanding in the game having not played for five months."
