Swansea City vs Leicester City: Preview and Predictions

Swansea City vs Leicester City
Premier League
Date: 21st October 2017
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Liberty Stadium (Swansea).

Both Swansea City and Leicester City got off to a rather poor start to their Premier League campaigns going into this weekend’s clash which has all the ingredients of being a relegation six-pointer even though coming this early in the season.

Swansea City

To be fair, the Swans were expected to struggle having lost two of their key men in the final third (Gylfi Sigurdsson and Fernando Llorente) in summer.

However, Chelsea’s loanee Tammy Abraham popped out as the saviour since his brace in the last weekend’s 2-0 win at home against Huddersfield Town has helped the team move away from the red zone.

The talented youngster thus took his tally to four goals in each league outings and he will be the man to keep an eye on this time as well.

Leicester City

The visitors are going through a rough period at the start of the season.

The run of six straight games without a win in Premier League caused parting ways with Craig Shakespeare who has moved the team away from the relegation scrap in the last term after Ranieri got sacked.

Michael Appleton is the caretaker boss and his main concerns will be bound to the defensive line which has been way too vulnerable in the recent period.

Swansea City vs Leicester City: Head to head

Leicester City have taken seven wins in their previous 11 meetings with Swansea City, but six of them came at King Power Stadium.

This means the Swans come into this with four wins in last five matches with the Foxes at Liberty.

Swansea City vs Leicester City: Prediction

With the red-hot Abraham as a genuine option up front, Paul Clement’s men can indeed get some points on the board here and we just have to back them to take advantage of the tough situation in Leicester and claim the second win on the bounce at the odds of 2.80.

Swansea City vs Leicester City: Bets

The first bet is Swansea City to win the match at the odds of 2.80.

You can have Tammy Abraham to score anytime at the odds of 2.87.
