Swansea’s winless run was extended to five matches after last weekend’s 2-1 loss at Stoke, while Leicester have picked up just one point in three matches since their comeback win against Manchester United last month.
Swans boss Garry Monk, who accused referee Michael Oliver of ‘cheating’ his team on Sunday, will be keen to see his side return to the sort of form that saw them reach the summit of the league with victories in their opening three league fixtures.
Leicester have fallen from sixth to 15th in the space of four weeks. The Foxes haven’t left empty-handed in games against Everton, Arsenal and Manchester United this season, but defeats to Crystal Palace and Newcastle in their previous two away fixtures leave Nigel Pearson’s men sandwiched in a congested bottom half.
