Match Preview : Swansea vs Leicester

Swansea were desperately unlucky not to come away with a positive result at Manchester City having come unstuck late on. The Swans, though, have won three of their last five Premier League outings and come into the welcome of the Premier League champions as favourites.

Leicester’s title defence has been nothing short of a shambles. The Foxes are yet to score a league goal in 2017, and have the second worst away record in the Premier League this season, winning three of a possible 36 points on their travels this term.

Swansea, then, should be confident of back-to-back home wins in this massive fixture in their bid to stave off relegation.

Team News

Swansea – Luciano Narsingh could start in place of Wayne Routledge after impressing from the bench at Manchester City.

Other than that, Paul Clement could name a familiar side to the one that fell to a late 2-1 loss last Sunday.Jordan Ayew is back from Africa Cup of Nations duty but Clement is not sure whether he is ready to start this weekend.

Jefferson Montero is a long-term absentee, while Ki Sung-yueng and Leon Britton are also sidelined.

Leicester – Leonardo Ulloa is a doubt with a thigh problem, though the Argentine is unlikely to play for the club again after being denied a move away from Leicester in January.

Other than that, Claudio Ranieri has no further injury concerns coming into the meeting with Swansea.

The Italian could ring the changes from the midweek extra time win over Derby.
