Patson Daka scores on his return from injury in Leicester’s defeat to Spurs

Two injury-time goals from substitute Steven Bergwijn helped Tottenham Spurs Hotspur come back from 2-1 down to beat Leicester City in a 5-goal thriller at Wednesday night.

Zambian forward Patson Daka gave Leicester City the lead in 24th minute against the run of play but his goal was cancelled out by Harry Kane’s strike just before the break.

After the break Jamie Madison made it 2-1 in for Leicester City in the 76th minute and in the turn of events, Bergwijn’s late double left the home ground stunned at the King Power Stadium as Spurs sealed victory.

Daka was replaced in the 75th minute.

Leicester are 10th in the table while Spurs move up to fifth on the Premier League table.

  1. I am seriously worried with our boy Daka. He seems sluggish ever since he came to City. He no longer fights for the ball like he used to at Red Bulls, even when he clearly should grab it from opponents and put it beyond the keeper’s reach into the net, but just jogs around on the pitch (with just a few bursts now and then) and expects to be given the ball, goodness, who does that? Somebody please tell the boy to sharpen up. No wonder he gets substituted easily. The same goes with Mwepu!!! What’s happening?
