A few weeks ago there was uncertainty, but after last weeks results that doubt is gone: Leicester City are in the middle of a fight for Premier League survival. The Foxes currently sit just one point above safety after a weird and frustrating run of form to start the year. Their opponents Swansea are in better position for points, but come into the game on much stronger form.
Both teams will see a big opportunity to open some space today after the four other teams around them in the table combined for just one point yesterday. The Swans are home, so will feel like favourites for the big win, but were also one of the few sides that Leicester beat comfortably earlier in the season.
