Leicester star Ndidi makes prediction about Daka after striker's first Premier League goal
Recuperating Nigeria midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is convinced that Patson Daka will keep scoring goals for Leicester City after the Zambian opening his Premier League account against Manchester United this past weekend.

After replacing Kelechi Iheanacho, Daka bundled the ball home at the back post in the first minute of stoppage time to surely seal three points for the Foxes.

And in doing so he became the first player classed as a Zambian to score in the English Premier League.

Daka arrived the King Power Stadium in the summer with a huge goalscoring reputation, netting 68 times in 125 appearances for Red Bull Salzburg and won the Austrian Bundesliga Golden Boot in his final season with the club, matching the feat of Nigeria international Olarenwaju Kayode, who won the top scorer award with Austria Vienna in 2016-2017.

Daka is behind Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho in manager Brendan Rodgers' pecking order of center forwards, logging only 39 minutes after eight matches in the division.

"God's timing. Proud to get my first league goal of the season for Leicester. Even better that I could do it at home in front of home fans," Daka posted on Instagram after the clash against Manchester United.

Reacting to the post by the Leicester City number 29, Ndidi said : "More to come brother".

Ndidi, who is recovering from a hamstring-related injury, is not expected to return to action until after the third international break of the 2021-2022 season.
