Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski has revealed the squad are keen to avenge the heavy defeat suffered at the hands of Leicester when they meet again on Sunday.

Leicester were far too strong for the Swans when they met earlier in the campaign and the Foxes triumphed 3-0 at the Liberty Stadium.

Fabianski admitted that his side were outclassed on the day and felt the final scoreline could have been even more one-sided.

The King Power Stadium outfit head into this weekend’s clash still at the top of the Premier League table, with a five-point lead over second-placed Tottenham.

However, Fabianski believes the Swans can upset Leicester’s title hopes now that they are playing with less pressure and not looking over their shoulders at a relegation battle.

Fabianski said: “The last time we played Leicester we were not in a good shape and they exposed us.

“We lost 3-0 but it could and should have been more. They were lively, energetic and played with a lot of confidence. They are a very offensive and fit team.

“Hopefully on Sunday we can put things right. Of course, (Jamie) Vardy is not playing but they have so many good players to come in.

“Looking at the way they play and score goals, they have Wes Morgan and Robert Huth who are very strong in the air, while Leonardo Ulloa is the same. They have Riyad Mahrez and Danny Drinkwater, who are very good on the ball, so they have players around the pitch who can score.”

Leicester are 1.70 to pick up the win on Sunday while the draw can be backed at 3.60.
Swansea are available at 5.25 to take all three points on their travels.
