Club

With the Swans hosting Leicester City at the Liberty on Sunday, we look at back at some previous encounters between the clubs.

Here, we bring you some classic Championship clashes along with a Premier League meeting.

Swansea 2-0 Leicester

Premier League - Saturday, October 25, 2014

Wilfried Bony struck twice as the Swans rose to sixth in the Barclays Premier League with a 2-0 victory over Leicester City at the Liberty.

Bony netted in either half as Garry Monk's side picked up their first win in six games.

The Ivorian broke the deadlock after 34 minutes as he capped off a fine move which saw his backheel pass find Gylfi Sigurdsson, who then returned a low pass which Bony fired home past Kasper Schmeichel.

Bony then doubled the lead before the hour mark as Sigurdsson's sublime through ball found Jefferson Montero, and his perfect cutback allowed Bony to guide home from short range.

It proved Bony's fourth goal in nine league appearances, with his overall tally of 20 since joining the club moving him alongside Michu as the Swans' highest overall scorer in the Premier League.
