Wes Morgan has praised the resilience from his Leicester City team-mates as they returned to winning ways on Saturday by seeing off Swansea at the Liberty Stadium.

The Foxes parted company with Craig Shakespeare last week and caretaker boss Michael Appleton was tasked with taking the squad to South Wales.

Leicester, who are priced at 13.00 to be relegated, responded well to Shakespeare’s departure and triumphed 3-1 to claim a vital three points and their first Premier League victory since August.

Federico Fernandez put through his own net to hand Leicester the lead midway through the first half before Shinji Okazaki doubled their lead early in the second period.

Alfie Mawson struck back for Swansea before the hour mark and Leicester had to spend large periods on the back foot in the closing stages.

Morgan praised the squad for showing incredible spirit to hang on for the win and felt they looked more like the Leicester of old.

“It was more of the Leicester of old which is good. We scored the goals at the right times and we even showed some resilience to concede a goal but still see the game out,” Morgan said.

“It’s about time we started putting some more points on the board.

“We don’t feel like we’ve had a good start to the season and, to get these points, hopefully we can build on that and get some more on the board.”
