Leicester City continued their surprise resurgence in the Premier League with a 2-0 win against Swansea City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon, which now sees Nigel Pearson’s side in with a genuine should of survival, reports BBC Sport.
The home side took the lead against Garry Monk’s men in the 15th minute through Leonardo Ulloa. The previously struggling striker, who has endured a serious goal drought this season – capitalised on a knock down from teammate Wes Morgan to put Leicester ahead early on.
Swansea City did have their brief moments were they almost came back into the game, with Nelson Oliveira forcing a save from Leicester’s Kasper Schmeichel between the sticks. But Leicester eventually eased the nerves late in the game, with Andy King doubling their lead in the last minute of normal time.
The victory was Leicester’s third on the bounce in the Premier League, and now sees them off the foot of the table for the first time since November. For Swansea City, Garry monk’s men recent upturn in form took a dip, which means the wait goes on another gameweek for the Jacks to topple their Premier League record points tally.
