Swans determined to avenge defeat, says Fabianski
23rd April 2016
Lukasz Fabianski revealed the Swans are determined to "put things right" when they visit Barclays Premier League leaders Leicester City on Sunday.
Leicester have their eye on becoming shock champions following a stunning campaign under Claudio Ranieri, with the Foxes currently five points ahead of second-placed Tottenham with four games to go.
But the Swans will look to dent their title hopes at the King Power Stadium, with Francesco Guidolin's side aiming to bounce back from last weekend's disappointing 3-0 at Newcastle United.
The Swans will also be looking to avenge the 3-0 defeat dished out by the Foxes at the Liberty in December.
"The last time we played Leicester we were not in a good shape and they exposed us," said Fabianski.
"We lost 3-0 but it could and should have been more. They were lively, energetic and played with a lot of confidence. They are a very offensive and fit team.
"Hopefully on Sunday we can put things right."
The Swans face a Leicester side missing 22-goal striker Jamie Vardy, with the England international serving a ban following his dismissal in last weekend's 2-2 draw with West Ham.
But Fabianski underlined the Foxes' strength in depth, insisting they have options to fill the 29-year-old's boots.
"Of course, Vardy is not playing but they have so many good players to come in," explained the Polish keeper.
"Looking at the way they play and score goals, they have Wes Morgan and Robert Huth who are very strong in the air, while Leonardo Ulloa is the same. They have Riyad Mahrez and Danny Drinkwater who are very good on the ball, so they have players around the pitch who can score."
While Leicester are going for the league title, the Swans are hoping to finish near the top half of the table.
Despite starting the campaign with two wins and two draws in the opening month, a run of just one victory in 12 games saw the club become involved in the battle against the drop.
But four wins and a draw - including a 2-1 triumph at Arsenal - from the last seven games have propelled Guidolin's side up the table.
And Fabianski revealed the determination within the squad to end the campaign strongly.
"It has not gone the way we wanted this season," added the 31-year-old. "There has been a lot of ups and downs, but we want to finish the season strongly.
"We are only a point off mid-table, and if we could finish 11th then that wouldn't be such a bad season considering how it's gone."
