Confirmed: Leicester and Swansea line-ups

Leicester City

Here is how Leicester City and Swansea City will line up this weekend:

Leicester City welcome Swansea City to the King Power Stadium this afternoon with the Foxes looking to move another step closer to their first ever Premier League title.

Leicester are currently five points clear of second-placed Tottenham Hotspur with just four matches remaining, and with Spurs not playing until Monday evening Claudio Ranieri’s side have the chance to stretch their advantage back to eight points.

Swansea are 14th after a fine run of form ended the prospect of relegation this season and they will play with no pressure this afternoon, meaning they could upset their high-flying hosts.

Whatever happens, Leicester will have to do without prolific front-man Jamie Vardy after the England international was sent off against West Ham United last time out.

That said, Leicester have won six of the last seven meetings between the two sides and it would take a bold person to bet against them getting one over their Welsh counterparts later on today.
