PREDICTION
It is fair to say that Carlos Carvalhal has revived Swansea’s fortunes since being appointed manager back in December 2017. The former Sheffield Wednesday boss has picked up 10 points from a possible 15 since being installed, as the Swans have moved off the bottom of the table. They travel to Leicester this weekend to face a team that is in what looks like a three-way battle for 7th place this season along with Burnley and Everton. They lost to the latter in midweek and will be looking to return to winning ways, and the prediction is for Swansea to pick up a point at the King Power Stadium.

MEMORABLE MEETING
April 2016 saw the two sides face off at the King Power Stadium and it was an afternoon which saw Leicester make a massive stride towards winning their first ever Premier League title. Claudio Ranieri faced off against compatriot Francesco Guidolin on the touchline and the former Chelsea boss masterminded a comprehensive 4-0 win over Swansea to put them within touching distance of completing their fairy tale season, one that saw them crowned as champions.
