Swansea v Leicester odds, betting preview – Swans desperate for win at Liberty

Swansea City, without a win in five, host a Leicester City side who have lost two of their last three games as betting odds suggest this will be a tight affair.

In recent weeks Swansea have started to slide down the table and sit in eighth, whilst Leicester have just a two point advantage over the bottom three.

Garry Monk was furious with the decision to award Stoke a penalty in Swansea’s 2-1 defeat at the Britannia last week.

Wilfried Bony had given Swansea the lead, before Angel Rangel was hardly adjudged to have fouled Victor Moses.

Charlie Adam converted the spot kick, with Jonathan Walters coming off the bench to win the game for Stoke.

Leicester failed to increase the pressure on Newcastle manager Alan Pardew, after they lost 1-0 at St. James’s Park.

Gabriel Obertan scored the game’s only goal with time running out, finishing off a fine individual effort.

The pair last met in the season Swansea were promoted to the Premier League, with both sides winning their respective home game.

Scott Sinclair scored in Swansea’s victory at Saturday’s venue in the Liberty Stadium.

Despite their poor form, Monk is likely to name the same starting XI that lost narrowly away to Stoke City.

This will see the summer signings Jefferson Montero and Bafetimbi Gomis remain as substitutes.

With Jordi Amat out injured, the Argentine Federico Fernandez will continue alongside Ashley Williams in defence.

Riyad Mahrez missed out against Newcastle, however is expected to return to the starting XI on Saturday.

David Nugent is likely to be named on the bench, with Jamie Vardy and Leonardo Ulloa to lead the line.

Swansea: Fabianski; Rangel, Fernandez, Williams, Taylor; Shelvey, Ki; Dyer, Sigurdsson, Routledge; Bony
Leicester: Schmeichel, De Laet, Morgan, Moore, Konchesky; Cambiasso, Hammond, Drinkwater; Mahrez, Vardy, Ulloa
