MATCH PREVIEW: Swans v Leicester

5th December

The Swans will be looking to return to winning ways when they face high-flying Leicester City at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday (3pm).
A much-improved performance from Garry Monk's side saw a narrow 1-0 defeat at Liverpool last Sunday, while Saturday's opponents continued their march at the opposite end of the table.
Leicester, under the guidance of Claudio Ranieri, have lost just once all season and sit second in the Premier League - level on points with Manchester City.
Their 1-1 draw against Manchester United last week also saw striker Jamie Vardy break a new Premier League record as the England international scored in his 11th successive game.

Swans boss Garry Monk: "I thought we were excellent last Sunday. Of course we were disappointed with the result but it was definitely a step in the right direction.
"We've had a good week, worked very well and hopefully we can produce an even better performance because it's about maintaining that high standard now."

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri: "For me, Swansea is a very good team. I told my players to be careful because Swansea is a good team and for us that's very important. 
"There are very good players there. They started very well. They beat Manchester United and drew with Tottenham and Chelsea. Sooner or later they'll get better."
