    • Daka played in 30 out of 38 Premier League matches last season. He scored 4 goals. The previous season, he played in 23 EPL matches and scored 5. For a striker, this is disappointing.

He is quick enough against some inferior opponents – against Spartak Moscow for example when he scored 3 – but in the premier league, defenders are too quick for him when he plays in the way that Leicester did last season.
