Why Swansea City are great value to win this weekend versus leader-less Leicester

Welsh side could grab third win of campaign

Swansea City host Leicester City this weekend. And the game represents a huge chance for the hosts to claim three vital points.

The Foxes sacked manager Craig Shakespeare this week, and much like last season, the former champions appear lost and devoid of impetus.

They sit in the relegation zone, and their problems should play straight into Swansea’s hands.

Floundering Foxes

Leicester are the 31/20 favourites, but there’s no confidence to be had in backing the Foxes right now.

Several players have already lost focus, and they’re yet to win on their travels this season.

Paul Clement’s side are 9/5 to win this Saturday. That price looks far too good to ignore.

Swansea were much-improved in their 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town last time out.

The win – and three points – will have handed the Liberty Stadium outfit crucial momentum and a welcome confidence boost.

Abraham is on song

And the same will go for striker Tammy Abraham, who bagged both goals a week ago.

 The 20-year-old has a tough year ahead of him leading the line, but with four goals from eight games he is already showing that he belongs in the top-flight.

He’ll be on a high as he prepares to take on a Leicester defence which has already conceded 13 times this season. Only three sides have a worse defensive record.

The former Chelsea man is 3/1 to score in a home win for the second weekend in succession.

Swansea won this fixture 2-0 last season. Claudio Ranieri was sacked just 11 days later.

This time around the Foxes have already parted ways with the manager, but once again a Swansea win looks promising.

At 13/8 to be relegated, our traders think the Welsh side are in trouble this season. But they have an opportunity to rise to mid-table this weekend, and it’s one they can’t afford to miss out on.
