Patson Daka assists but limps out in Leicester City’s loss at Liverpool

Patson Daka set up a goal but limped out just 13 minutes into Leicester City’s 2-1 loss away at Anfield. 

Daka maintained his place in the starting lineup as Brendan Rogers kept faith in the Zambian international after the less than impressive showing in the 3-0 loss to Newcastle United at King Power Stadium. 

Leicester City were hugely unfortunate to end 2022 with a defeat after leaving Anfield empty-handed, as Liverpool came from behind to win 2-1 in the Premier League on Friday night.

Daka looked lively from the onset looking to put pressure on the Liverpool defense from the word go. 

City were ahead within four minutes through Dewsbury-Hall, who collected Patson Daka’s flick-on and strode forward before finishing beyond Alisson in front of the Kop.

The Foxes were handed a huge blow 13 minutes into the match as Daka, the creator of City’s opener, was forced off through injury and on came the Club’s all-time leading Premier League goalscorer, Jamie Vardy.

It is not yet clear how long the former Redbull Salzburg forward will be out. 

Two own goals from Wout Faes towards the end of the first half turned the game on its head as Liverpool collected maximum points. 

In the second half Leicester pushed for an equaliser but it was not to come as Liverpool held on to win the match. 

Into the New Year, Leicester City’s opening test of 2023 sees them tackle Fulham at King Power Stadium on Tuesday 3 January (7:45pm kick-off), prior to facing Gillingham at Priestfield Stadium in the Emirates FA Cup Third Round on Saturday 7 January (12:30pm kick-off).

  1. Ymmmm apa peve we just need a psychologist coz our boys at all levels need a shift in their mentality…

    Too much potential but eh we are settling on just trying:

    》 AFCON : We have been reduced to fulfilling fixtures just to watch others qualify. A convincing hatrick of AFCON qualification failures.

    》 WORLD CUP : Let’s not even go there as its over for the current senior team. Lets focus on the U17 & U20 COSAFA Champions & mentally prepare them for the ultimate goal to be the first generation to make it at the grand event in 2026…

    》 UNDER 23 : Eh this team knows no value for any competitive football. CHAN is a strange & foreign concept…. EGYPT is waiting to use us for their qualifications.
