Premier League preview and odds: Swansea City vs Leicester City

December 5, 2015 15:00pm - Liberty Stadium

Premier League

Out-of-form Swansea City will face a tough challenge on Saturday when in-form Leicester City visit the Liberty Stadium in the Barclays Premier League.

Swansea in relegation form

With just one win in their last 11 games (against bottom-ranked Aston Villa), Swansea City have the second-worst form of any team in the league over that period. As a result, they have slipped to 15th in the table and are in danger of being sucked into a relegation scrap.

Garry Monk`s team have not won a game at home since their impressive victory over Manchester United back in August. They now face a Leicester team that has yet to be beaten away from home.

Leicester still in title hunt

Only goal difference is separating Leicester City and the expensively-assembled squad of Manchester City at the summit of the Premier League table. The league’s top scorers continue to defy the odds by maintaining the pace in the title race. There can be no doubt that the East Midlands side are now a genuine threat to the more established clubs hoping to make it into the top four.

With just one defeat to their name and an unbeaten away record, the Foxes continue to play some of the most exciting football in the league. Last time out, they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to top-four rivals Manchester United in a game that saw Jamie Vardy score for the 11th consecutive game.

Team news

Both side have full strength teams to choose from for this clash.

Recent form (League)

Swansea City: LDLLW

Betting odds and tips

All eyes will be on Jamie Vardy as he continues his record-breaking goal-scoring quest against the Swans. Leicester have been triumphant on three of their last four road trips and are good value at 17/10 (Betfred) to grab the win. The same bookmaker will give you 11/8 on Jamie Vardy scoring at any time in the game.
