Swansea City started with a 1-0 away win against the newly promoted Burnley in their first match of the season. And then suffered a surprise home defeat to another promoted side Hull City. The Swans narrowly escaped relegation last season and they will be hoping for none the less a top half finish this term.

Leicester defeated Swansea 4-0 at home and 3-0 away in the two Premier League matches of last season. This put them on a three match winning run and each of those wins with a clean sheet.

The Foxes are also on a five match winning run against Swansea at home and have scored two or more goals in each of them.

Leictester vs Swansea: Prediction

Leicester will be desperate to get back to winning ways after failing in the opening two matches of the season. And there is no best opponent to face at the moment than Swansea, who lost in each of the last five trips to the King Power Stadium. Moreover, the Foxes have scored 9 goals without reply in the last three encounters against the Swans. They must win this and pretty easily.
