The Zambian striker starred as he made his first appearance at the King Power Stadium in Sunday’s 4-0 win over Newcastle.
And now, the 23-year-old is looking to build on that breakthrough.
“Every player looks forward to starting, but it’s also about what the coach thinks tactically in that game,” Daka told the Leicester club’s official website.
“I think he believes I’m the one he wants to use. It’s not that I’m better than the others, it’s the way he wants to approach the game.
“I’m just grateful that I made my full debut here and made my mark with a goal and an assist that was really great for me, for my confidence and for the team as well.”
Daka congratulated his goal with an upside down celebration, with the former RB Salzburg striker admitting he was always interested in acrobatics.
Daka said: “It was since I was a kid that I did it for fun. “I just do it with my friends. Most of the time, I get lost in the moment when I’m celebrating.
“Whatever comes to my mind is what I will do in the end. It’s not like I was going to do this, I just found myself doing it! ”
The Newcastle stalwarts thrashed very well, unable to build on a 1-0 win over Burnley, which proved their first win belatedly in an analytical campaign.
Striker Callum Wilson has urged Eddie Howe’s men to shake off an uncomfortable day, however, to focus on the relegation battle.
“We had a good result at the weekend and our first win of the season,” Wilson said on the club’s website.
“So to come back like that is disappointing but we need to gather ourselves and go again.
“I think the score pleases them. We took the lead in the game but dominated the use of the ball and just couldn’t find that last pass.”
