Leicester City vs Swansea City
Venue: King Power Stadium
Swansea City will look to carry on an amazing run of form when they take on Leicester City at the King Power, that has seen them defeat Liverpool and Arsenal in back to back Premier League victories.
Carlos Carvalhal has truly rejuvenated this Swans side by tightening up at the back and playing with more conviction going forward. Somehow, the Swans are now one point away from getting out of the bottom three, and even five points from tenth place. Its really hotting up in the relegation battle and Carvalhal’s men will most certainly be looking to get another win this weekend.Embed from Getty Images
Swansea’s new signings Andre Ayew and Andy King are the latest additions to the squad. Hopefully Andre will hit the ground running with his brother Jordan and steer the Swans to safety. Ayew was great asset for the Swans the season he joined from Marseille and will be hoping to find the form he showed in the 2015/16 campaign.
Jordan Ayew and Sam Clucas were the stars vs Arsenal on Tuesday night, both chipping in with goals and looking dangerous all game. I’m sure they will be first names on the team sheet this weekend after their display midweek.
Leicester City will look to bounce back after a defeat to Everton at Goodison Park. With Mahrez stealing the headlines over the last few days with his last minute transfer request, there are many doubts as to whether he will feature this weekend, especially with the news of him not attending training today.
Jamie Vardy has scored 2 in 2 games and Leicester will be hugely relying on his goal scoring form to break down an inform well organised Swansea City side.Embed from Getty Images
Wes Morgan is sidelined for the Foxes, so likely only him and Mahrez are to be absent for the Foxes this weekend.
This game should be a good encounter with plenty of counter attacking football with both teams having everything to play for. There should be plenty of chances but I feel the game will end in a draw.
Prediction: Leicester City 1 – 1 Swansea City
