Patson Daka starts for Leicester City at Anfield

Zambia national team forward Patson Daka has returned to the Leicester City starting lineup as he starts up front for tonight’s English Premier League clash against Liverpool.

Brendan Rogers has made four changes to the team that was handed a 4-1 defeat away at Nottingham Forest in the Emirates FA Cup.

Daka, Boubakar Soumare , Marc Albrighton and Kieran Drewsbury Hall come in for Kelechi Iheanacho, Çağlar Söyüncü, Youri Tielemans and Harvey Barnes.

The former Redbull Salzburg striker will be supported in attack by Ademola Lookman and Marc Albrighton on the wings.

The Zambian international has been enjoying fine form with seven goal involvements in his last six starts for the Foxes.

Daka is also the only player in the English Premier League this season to average a goal and assist every 180 minutes played.

Kasper Schmeichel starts between the sticks as expected with James Justin, Luke Thomas, Daniel Amartey, and Wilfred Ndidi making up the back four.

Drewsbury Hall partners Soumare in midfield with James Madison playing just above them in his usual attacking slot.

Kick off for the match is 21:45.
