Swansea vs Leicester – Match Preview

Swansea midfielder Jonjo Shelvey returns after completing a ban.

French full-back Franck Tabanou will be out for several weeks after injuring a thigh muscle in training.

Leicester defender Ritchie de Laet will be sidelined for up to a month after suffering an ankle injury, while Swans loanee Nathan Dyer is ineligible.

The game comes too soon for Matt James, who continued his recovery from a long-term knee injury by playing for the Foxes’ development side in midweek.

Editor’s Note: All the headlines were for Jamie Vardy last weekend as he broke the record of scoring in 11 consecutive Premier League matches after netting at home to Manchester United. That goal came in a 1-1 draw which saw Leicester knocked off the top of table by Manchester City.

But Second in the table for Leicester is no great shame at all and with a trip to Swansea tomorrow there’s no reason why they can’t sustain position by the end of the afternoon and also Jamie Vardy could score in a 12th consecutive match.

They go to a Swansea side who have only won once in their last ten matches and Garry Monk will be wondering where a win will come from as he looks to keep his job at The Liberty Stadium.

Swansea will feel hard done by after their defeat at Anfield in which their was a very debatable handball call against Neil Taylor and a resultant Penalty converted by James Milner but more worrying is the lack of form from their strikers. How they could do with a Jamie Vardy right now.

Tomorrow I think Leicester will continue their rich vein of form and come away with all 3 points, could defeat mean the final game in charge for Garry Monk. We will have a better idea by 5pm tomorrow.
