Jude Bellingham was left impressed by James Maddison’s display in the North London Derby, with the Real Madrid man taking to social media to praise his England teammate.

Maddison was once again Tottenham’s creative fulcrum at the Emirates, with most of the away side’s good moves going through him.

The England international often dropped deep to receive the ball and always looked to play forward, once again having a major impact in the final third, setting up both of Son Heung-min’s goals.

Bellingham also seemingly loved what he saw from the former Leicester City star, commenting ‘class’ on his Instagram post. Meanwhile, Pedro Porro, who also impressed at the Emirates, writing ‘baller’ on Maddison’s post.
