Leicester City forward Patson Daka hits four goals as the Foxes fight back from two goals down to defeat Spartak Moscow in Thursday's Europa League clash.

Leicester City's summer signing Patson Daka starred in their 4-2 Europa League victory over Spartak Moscow on Wednesday, netting all four of his side's goals.

The Foxes travelled to Russia with just one point from their first two continental outings, and their likelihood of dropping out of the competition looked greater than ever as Aleksandr Sobolev and Jordan Larsson put the hosts two goals ahead going into the interval.

Daka quickly fired back though, instantly halving the deficit in the 45th minute before drawing his side level soon after half time.

It would not take the Zambian much longer to complete his hat-trick, as he fired them into a 3-2 lead before the hour mark and rounded off an eye-catching performance with a fourth effort in the 78th minute, and Brendan Rodgers's side would defend a one-goal lead after Sobolev scored his second of the game in the dying minutes.

Such a performance saw the 23-year-old take his tally to five goals in seven appearances for the Foxes, after capping off a 4-2 victory over Manchester United with a late finish on Saturday.
