Stop the presses!
Patson Daka (£1.6m) has come from nowhere to stamp his mark on Dream Team in extreme fashion.
Last weekend, the 23-year-old became the first Zambian to score in the Premier League when he added the cherry on top of Leicester’s win over Man United at the King Power.
Brendan Rodgers rewarded him with a place in the starting line-up for the Foxes’ strangely scheduled Europa League clash with Spartak Moscow on Wednesday afternoon.
And Daka could not have seized his chance more convincingly as he scored FOUR goals in the Russian capital.
Playing up front alongside Kelechi Iheanacho (£4.2m), Leicester’s No29 exhibited immense composure in front of goal to convert three one-on-ones and a tap-in.
As you would expect, Daka claimed the Star Man award to pocket 33 points in one fell swoop.
Add in his eight points from the weekend and he boasts a Game Week haul of 41 – the largest of the season so far!
Daka has earned as many points in the space of five days as Trent Alexander-Arnold (£4.8m) has produced all season – and that’s saying something because the Liverpool defender has been brilliant.
The 0.4%-owned striker was clinical in Red Bull Salzburg colours, particularly in his last season for the Austrian club when he scored 34 goals in 42 games.
Leicester forked out £22million for him in the summer but he’s had to be patient so far, playing just 39 minutes of league football.
Jamie Vardy (£4.2m) has been in excellent form and Rodgers has opted to use Iheanacho, who was so prolific in the latter third of last season, as a second striker when needed.
It’s never a good Dream Team strategy to back a player who is down the pecking order in his position so Daka’s ownership of 0.4% makes sense.
However, five goals in a week will surely earn him more minutes going forward.
At the very least, Dream Team gaffers should be aware of Daka and his potential.
