Routledge: Pressure is on Foxes
22nd April 2016
Wayne Routledge believes the pressure is all on title-chasing Leicester City ahead of Swansea City's trip to the King Power Stadium on Sunday (4.15pm).
The Foxes saw their lead at the top cut to five points after they drew 2-2 with West Ham while Routledge's former club Tottenham thumped Stoke City 4-0.
Claudio Ranieri's side - beaten just once on home soil this season - now face a Swans side smarting from last weekend's 3-0 loss at Newcastle.
The Swans sit ten points clear of third-bottom Sunderland, who have a game in hand, heading into the latest round of fixtures.
And Routledge believes the Swans head to the East Midlands with the spotlight firmly on their opponents.
"We're on 40 points, and hopefully a win on Sunday will make us uncatchable," said the winger, who recently played his 150th Premier League appearance for the Swans.
"We have Leicester on the weekend. They have done an amazing job.
"They're going for the title. At the start of the season no-one would have predicted them to finish in the top four.
"At the end of last season we went to Leicester and they were battling relegation.
"Sunday will be a very different game. It will be one we can enjoy because the pressure is on Leicester."
