Leicester City? Easy win for Swansea City! - Paul Merson

Sky Sports pundit anticipates a straight-forward 3-0 victory for the Swans at the Liberty Stadium this weekend.

Swansea City can consolidate their top half credentials this weekend as they will easily beat visiting Leicester City at the Liberty Stadium.

That is the opinion of Sky Sports football commentator Paul Merson, who has tipped the home team to triumph by three clear goals whilst keeping their sheet clean on Saturday.

"I think this will be an easy win for Swansea," he said.

"Leicester got beat at Newcastle last week and they were very naïve and they should have won the game before that when they drew with Burnley."

"Leicester are getting into a little bit of a sticky patch after that win over Man United. Teams have paid a lot more attention to them since then and have looked more closely at certain players.

"Even though that was a great result, maybe it worked against them. I thought Swansea were unlucky against Stoke when they went 1-0 up and suffered from a dubious penalty.

"I expect them to bounce back and win this easily," he concluded.

Swansea City have a number of high performers of late, with Gylfi Sigurdsson responsible for scoring a goal (one) or assist (six) once every 101 minutes he is on the field, Ashley Williams, who has helped fortify the club's defence and Ki Sung-Yeung, who has kept things tight in midfield.
