After a terriic start to the season with four wins from four the wheels have come off a littel bit for Swansea having lost three of the last six. Gary Monk will look to Wilfred Bony to lead the line and lead by example, Guilfi Sigurdsson will also be expected to lead by example for a young swans team. Nathan Dyer and Wayne Routledge started the season like a house on fire and Monk will be looking for more of the same as the Swans try to get themselves back on track in the league. The Liberty stadium has proven to be a tough place to go for other teams and with only one loss there this season, to high flying Southampton, Swansea will be hoping to take all three points in the Saturday evening kick off.
While Leicester City have shocked a few people this season and have a terrific come from behind victory at home to Mancheser United the team still lie in fifteenth place in the league and have only scored one goal away from home. That goal did come in a 1-0 win against Stoke but overall Leicester have been poor away from home and must do better if they want to survive this year in the league. Nigel Pearson will know that it is this kind of fixture against Swansea that he must target to take points.
Stats wise here a home win would look almost nailed on. To be honest I agree with the stats in this instance. Swansea are a team that play good football, have a strong midfield and a top class finisher in Bony. Where Leicester look a little light is up front. The midfield of leicester and the back four look capable of competing but I am just not sure if Ulloa is going to score enough goals to keep them up. I am takng the home team here at just about evens. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
