Market Movers: Tottenham, James Maddison, Phil Foden and Jude Bellingham

It's the first Market Movers of the season, and Steve Freeth has taken a look at some of the price changes from the first few weeks of the campaign.

Tottenham top four

Losing Harry Kane saw Tottenham drift from 10/3 to 5/1 for the top four, but with the potential contenders dropping points in the early going, Tottenham look in a very strong position.

Granted, they've not been dealt the toughest hand in terms of opening fixtures, but took a point at Brentford and beat Manchester United and second in the table.

There's a long way to go, but Ange Postecoglou has ticked a lot of boxes so far, and Spurs are into 7/4 to finish in the top four.

James Maddison most assists

Perhaps the biggest factor in Tottenham's excellent early season form is the addition of James Maddison.

Despite not having Harry Kane to finish the chances he's creating, Maddison has had no trouble creating goals in North London.

He might have missed an opportunity to add to his two from the opening weekend against Brentford as Spurs put five past Burnley, but Tottenham look to be well in for bags of goals this season, and Maddison - in from 25/1 to 8/1 - is sure to be creating them.

In amongst the furore around Maddison's start at Tottenham, there's a player going slightly under the radar somewhat. As big as 100/1 pre-season, Phil Foden currently tops the assist charts with three and is 7/1 joint-favourite to be top at the end of the season,

Jude Bellingham top goalscorer

There was a slight question mark around how Jude Bellingham would fit in at Real Madrid, with the likes of Toni Kroos and Luka Modric and Aurelian Tchouameni, not to mention the departure of Karim Benzema as the central striker.

Of course, we've seen English players move to Spain in the past and struggle, but that was less of a concern considering his rise to stardom in Germany.

But Bellingham has surpassed all expectations so far with his start at Real Madrid, scoring five goals in four games, leaving his two clear of the chasing pack, and the former Birmingham man is in from 100/1 to 12/1 to finish as La Liga top goalscorer.
