JAMES MADDISON has been the man with the magic touch at Tottenham this season.
He regularly controlled games with his wand of a right foot prior to his ankle injury.

Maddison’s absence has spelled trouble for Spurs, who have so far not won in his absence.
His love for the classic film franchise is clear for all to see, as he possesses three Harry Potter themed tattoos.
He has Harry’s scar inked on his arm, alongside Platform 9¾ and the Elder Wand.
During Tottenham’s pre-season tour, Maddison chose Harry Potter as his specialist subject during a Mastermind-style game.
While in further Spurs social media content he claimed he’d be in Gryffindor, with Harry’s house edging out Slytherin.
When Foster pointed out some HP memorabilia on Maddison’s kitchen table, the midfielder lit up as he explained that partner Kennedy Alexa had recently conjured up something special.
He revealed: “Massive Harry Potter fan. It was my birthday the other day so (my) missus got me an authentic signed Daniel Radcliffe signature with his wand and nice picture so that’ll go in the games room nicely.
“I’m a little geek when it comes to Harry Potter”
Foster then asked Maddison if he’s ever met Daniel Radcliffe, to which he replied: “No I could never meet him.
“I don’t ever want to meet Daniel Radcliffe, he’s Harry Potter to me! He’s my hero man.”
Such is Potter’s importance to Maddison, that the films have become a huge part of his festive routine.
He added: “Every year I watch all the films at Christmas. My mates and my family say ‘do you not get a bit bored if you watch it every year?’”
Maddison prides himself on knowing his remembralls from his every flavour beans, admitting: “I love Harry Potter trivia, there’s a couple of Harry Potter games up there by the pool table so sorry for being a geek.”
His fellow summer signing Guglielmo Vicario has saved efforts that other keepers may have needed a broomstick to get to this season.
But Maddison has confessed to having never heard of the Italian prior to his Spurs arrival.
He said: “We signed him. I hadn’t obviously signed yet. I was like ‘who is he?’ kind of thing. I’d never heard of him.
“I’m in the back of the car on his YouTube Vicario highlights to see if he was any good.”
