Mark Lawrenson highlights Swansea City's main flaw - can Leicester capitalise?

BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson believes the Swans are vulnerable when they are ahead, as they allow opponents to play their way back into the game.

Despite Leicester City's recent substandard form, which has arisen since their surprising 5-3 mauling of Manchester United, a victory for Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday is no foregone conclusion.

That is because Swansea City have shown a number of weaknesses throughout this season when they are attempting to defend a lead - on at least two occasions, after all, they have squandered their advantage.That is the view of BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson, who anticipates a tougher than expected match for the Swans this weekend.

"The Swans do not seem able to see out a victory - they led against Newcastle and Stoke but only picked up one point from those two games," said Lawrenson.

"But Leicester have hit a sticky patch since their big win over Manchester United last month, and the goals have dried up for Leonardo Ulloa after his good start to the campaign."

Swansea are flying high in the Premier League of late and are eighth in the division thanks to an 11 point haul from eight games.

Leicester City are in 15th place with nine points from eight.
