The high flying Leicester City foxes will travel to Wales to take on Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium and everyone will want to know can Jamie Vardy continue his remarkable goalscoring record and net in a twelfth consequtive game. Vardy's accomplishment has been a fantastic side story to an amazing fairytale that is Leicester City's season. Leicester are joint top of the Premier League on merit and Claudio Ranieri has to be commended for what he has done with this squad. Leicester not only are top but they are playing free flowing attractive and exciting football. The Foxes go to Wales on a seven game unbeaten stretch in the league and are still being under estimated by some bookmakers.
Swansea come into this game in horrible form having lost three of their last five and seven of their last eleven in all competitions. Gary Monk's positin as Swansea boss is probably coming under threat at this stage as the team is in free fall down the table. Swansea's home record this season though has been decent only losing twice once to Arsenal and a bad loss to Stoke in a game that the Swans dominated. With Gomis and Ayew up front though Swansea will definitely always have a chance in games as those two are among the best partnerships in the league that I have seen this season. In addition Sigurddson is continuing his fine form and I think that Swansea have been a little bit unlucky in a few games recently especially their 1-0 loss to Liverpool last weekend in a game that they played quite well.
While Leicester should probabaly be shorter favourite here I have to say I couldnt take them to win at the Liberty. In general Swansea have been very tough to beat here and I think that what we will see is goals. The way Leicester tend to play induces goals and I think we see plenty on Saturday here. In fact i wouldnt be a bit surprised to see this one finish 2-2. Take the overs here as we should be in for an attacking treat.
