Watch extended highlights as Leicester City secured a 4-1 victory against Huddersfield Town at the John Smith's Stadium.

"It was brilliant and really enjoyable to play in that one," the England Under-21s international said.

"We came away with a thoroughly deserved victory and that’s four on the bounce now so we’re playing with a real freedom at the minute and long may that continue!

"We all love football, we all enjoy playing football, and you want to go out there with a smile on your face, but you want to get the balance right with the hard work and the intensity.

"I think we’ve got that perfectly at the minute and that’s credit to the gaffer and credit to the coaching staff and credit to the work we’re putting in on the training pitch.

Practice makes permanent. Nobody’s ever going to be perfect but the more work you put in, the more results you’re going to get, the better results you’re going to get.

"The team were brilliant today, right from Kasper [Schmeichel] all the way through to Vards [Vardy].

"We’ve got a real intensity within our structure, which is a really good balance, and the team worked their socks off today so it’s credit to them.

"Credit to the boys in there today, they were fantastic and that one’s for the travelling supporters, who were brilliant today, so they can go home happy."

Asked which of his free-kicks, at Burnley and Huddersfield, was the better strike, Maddison added: "I’ll have to let you decide that!

"Both were different, one of them was ’keeper’s side and one was over the wall.

"Listen, I always practice them on the training pitch and hopefully, with the work that I’m putting in on the training pitch, we can keep getting results on the pitch.

"Practice makes permanent. Nobody’s ever going to be perfect but the more work you put in, the more results you’re going to get, the better results you’re going to get.

"It’s something I’ve always prided myself on, set-pieces, and, yes, I’ll keep doing that."
