In doing so, Daka became the first Zambian player in history to score in the Premier League with his strike in second-half stoppage time.

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers was pleased for Daka, who he describes as a natural goal scorer.

“James [Maddison] and Kels (Kelechi Iheanacho) put everything into the game, so we needed to keep the freshness in the team, we needed to keep them pushing,” Rodgers said after the game, as per

“And obviously bringing Patson [Daka] on, he wants to run in behind, he’s a natural goalscorer. For him, he had a little chance inside the box, the ‘keeper makes a save and then he’s there, sniffing around the goal for the finish. So, I’m very pleased for him.”
