The Foxes destroyed their South-Welsh counterparts at the King Power.
Goals from Riyad Mahrez and Leonardo Ulloa sent the Foxes 2-0 ahead by half time, before another from the Argentine and a fourth from Marc Albrighton put gloss on a victory which saw Claudio Ranieri's side move eight points clear of second-placed Tottenham Hotspur, who host West Brom tonight.
It represented a wonderful three points for Leicester, who had to make do without the services 22-goal Jamie Vardy due to a one-match ban, but former Spurs midfielder Anderton took exception to "pathetic" nature of the Swans' performance on the day.
Last Monday, Tottenham destroyed Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium by the same scoreline, and Anderton was swiftly reminded how the same argument could be made with regards to the Potters.

Tottenham can move back to within five points of Leicester if they beat the Baggies to ensure they keep the pressure on for the final three games of the season.
