Swansea City v Leicester City tips – Swans could be set for big win
Garry Monk’s side are a class act and can beat an off-colour Foxes team
October 24th, 2014
Leicester were earning high praise since beating Manchester United 5-3 although we should remember they were trailing 3-1 before that unlikely comeback and City have lost three of their four games on the road this term.
Indeed, the 1-0 win at the Britannia Stadium earlier this term sticks out like a sore thumb when set against defeats at Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Newcastle, with Swansea set to inflict another loss against a side dropping down the Premier League table.
The Swans are a very fair 19/20 with bet365 to win this game against newly-promoted opposition, with Garry Monk having seen his team unjustly lose 2-1 at Stoke on Sunday after forging any number of great opportunities to score.
Gylfi Sigurdsson has been running the show since returning to the Welsh club, with Wayne Routledge and Nathan Dyer providing plenty of menace from out wide and Wilfried Bony a battering ram in attack.
We should expect Swansea to be fired up after the injustice at the Britannia and it could be worth taking a flyer on the 40/1 with Paddy Power that the Swans win this game by a 4-0 scoreline.
Monk’s team have goals in them and beat Everton 3-0 in the League Cup earlier this season, with Leicester having kept just one clean sheet all term and looking to contain their opponents on Saturday rather than leave themselves exposed.
At the very least, we should look to back the Welsh side to win to nil considering Ashley Williams helps to command a formidable unit at the Liberty and Coral go 5/2 that Swansea get over the line without conceding a goal.
