Daka Describes Stoke Victory as ‘Crucial Win

The Zambian international opened the scoring at the bet365 Stadium, adding another in the second half, with Kasey McAteer and Jamie Vardy also getting on the scoresheet in a commanding performance in Stoke.

Reflecting on the match, the forward stated, “Securing the win today was crucial. We came here with one aim – to claim three points. At this stage, it’s imperative that we strive for maximum points in every game we play.”

“Each match presents its own unique challenges, and we approach them with different mindsets depending on the opposition. While it may appear straightforward, it’s anything but. We endeavor to simplify it, and that’s a product of our consistent efforts in training. I’m pleased to see our hard work paying dividends.”

Daka’s second goal came from the penalty spot, with substitute Vardy also converting a penalty late in the game. Stephy Mavididi took a penalty against Swansea City last week, highlighting the team’s proficiency in finding the back of the net.

With six goals and three assists in his last nine appearances, Daka noted, “When Jamie Vardy is on the pitch, he’s our primary penalty taker, but we all have the confidence to step up. It’s crucial for the team that whoever takes the penalty scores, and that’s what we’ve been achieving.”

Leicester’s emphatic victory marked their biggest winning margin since their 9-0 triumph over Southampton in 2019, propelling them 11 points clear at the top of the table. However, Daka remains focused on the task ahead.

“While this win is significant, we aim for more in the upcoming games. We must stay grounded and keep working hard,” he emphasized. “Our manager keeps us motivated, reminding us of the long journey ahead. We need to maintain our focus and dedication.”
