James Maddison aims subtle jibe at Liverpool – pointing out Leicester have been forced to use squad over injuries

JAMES MADDISON aimed a subtle jibe at Liverpool's growing injury crisis.

The Leicester star was on target as the Foxes stunned Jurgen Klopp's men with a dramatic 3-1 win on Saturday.

Maddison cancelled out Mo Salah's opener before Jamie Vardy capitalised on Alisson's error.

Harvey Barnes then put Liverpool to the sword after punishing more criminal defending by the visitors.

Klopp was forced to hand a debut to Ozan Kabak in defence alongside makeshift centre-back Jordan Henderson due to Liverpool's injury crisis.

Liverpool had seven first-team players ruled out including Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, Joe Gomez, Diogo Jota and Fabinho.

But Maddison was quick to remind fans that Leicester also have players on the treatment table.

After the game the England international pointed out: "We have a lot of injuries, by the way.

"It doesn't get talked about because we're not the Big Six, but we are utilising the squad brilliantly.

"We are right up there and we're not up there by fluke."
