Swansea City 2-0 Leicester City: Bony brace sees the Swans endless five-game winless run in the Premier League

Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony scored twice as the Jacks convincingly saw past Leicester City at the Liberty stadium, reports BBC Sport.

The hosts took the lead following a fine interchange between Bony and playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson. The Ivorian striker cleverly backheeled a pass to his Icelandic teammate, who gave him the ball back to finish past Kasper Schmeichel in the Leicester goal.

Leicester posted little threat in the first-half to Swansea, and minutes before the hour mark they doubled their lead. Wilfried Bony was on hand again in the 57th minute, finishing from Jefferson Montero’s cross to seal the victory.

The visitors did come dangerously close to an equaliser when Esteban Cambiasso struck the post with a close range effort, after Swans ‘keeper Lukasz Fabianksi parried a shot in his direction.

But the result means Swansea end their five-game winless run in the Premier League, while Leicester end the day just two points above the drop zone.
