Swansea City vs Leicester City preview

Saturday December 5, 2015 15:00pm – Liberty Stadium

Recent Form

Swansea City: LDLLW

Leicester City: DWWWW

Swansea City have been in relegation form over the last eight games and must now face the team with the second-best form in the league over the same period when they face Leicester City at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

Swans sinking fast

Over the last 10 Premier League games, only Aston Villa have picked up less points than Swansea City, and Villa are the only side that Garry Monk’s men have beaten in the last 11 games. Their poor form has left them in 15th-place in the table, just four points clear of the drop zone.

Swansea come into this game on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Liverpool in which they failed to record a single shot on goal (via Whoscored). They have not won at home since they defeated Manchester United back in August.

The Swans have rarely been troubled by injury this season and once again will have a full strength team to choose from.

Leicester enjoying life at the top

Leicester are level on points with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table and now look like genuine contenders for a top-four finish. No team has scored more goals than Claudio Ranieri’s men, and Tottenham Hotpspur are the only other team who can boast just a single defeat against their name.

In their last game, they were held 1-1 at home to Manchester United having previously won four games in a row. A win this weekend could put them back at the top of the league if Man City fail to beat Stoke in the day’s early kick-off.

The Foxes have no fresh injury worries ahead of this game.


Swansea are in danger of being dragged into the relegation zone and will not be looking forward to the visit of Leicester City. The Foxes are unbeaten on the road and have won three of their last four away games. They have scored at least two goals in their last five away games. The away win can be backed at 6/4 with Betfair.

Jamie Vardy will continue his quest to break the top-flight consecutive goals record and can be backed at 9/2 to score the first goal with Betfair.
