Pre-Match Stats: Swansea City vs Leicester City

Swansea City host Leicester City at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday as the Swans look to build on last week's 2-0 home win against Huddersfield Town.

They're up against a Leicester side that are currently struggling near the foot of the table and they sacked their manager Craig Shakespeare this week after their 1-1 draw at West Brom.

Team News:

Wilfried Bony is still out injured for the Swans, while the Foxes have no new injury concerns - they have Robert Huth and midfielder Matty James still sidelined with ankle and Achilles injuries.

Our home record vs Leicester:



The Swans have played Leicester City three times at home in the Premier League, winning twice and losing once.

Goals involving Leicester at home



In the 3 home games against Leicester, there's been 7 goals, an average of 2.33 per game, slightly less than the overall home Premier League average for the Swans (2.69).

Scorelines:



The Swans have won both their home games against Leicester by a 2-goal scoreline, while Leicester City won their game 3-0. There's yet to be a Premier League home fixture involving the two clubs where both teams have scored.

Quick stats:

Following last weekend's home win, Paul Clement is now joint top of the Swansea City managers (with Garry Monk) for points per game average in the Premier League (1.31).

Tammy Abraham increased his goal tally to 4 after last weekend's brace, he's netted 4 goals from just 6 shots on target.

Craig Shakespeare only won 14 points in his last 16 games before his sacking.

Referee for the game, Michael Oliver has officiated 9 home games at Swansea City in the Premier League, the Swans have only lost two of them, winning 4.

Prediction:

It's never the best time to face a side just after a manager has been sacked, the week leading up to it is usually best. Leicester will be eager to improve their form and prove something to the new man in charge, even if he is only the caretaker boss. Leicester will still be a difficult side to break down and we'll need to maintain last weekend's energy levels to get a result. 1-1 draw.
