TEAM NEWS
Leicester will be without top scorer Jamie Vardy, who will serve at least a one-match ban as a result of his red card in the draw with West Ham.

He is expected to be replaced by Leonardo Ulloa, while Nathan Dyer is ineligible to face his parent club.

Swansea midfielder Leon Britton returns after missing the last two matches with a back problem.

Jack Cork has recovered from a facial injury he suffered last weekend in the defeat by Newcastle.

MATCH FACTS
Head-to-head

  • The home team has won six of the last seven meetings - the exception was Leicester's 3-0 win at Swansea in December.
  • The Foxes are unbeaten in their last 11 home games in all competitions against the Swans.
  • Swansea's last win away to Leicester was in October 1950.
Leicester City

  • Leicester have lost just one of their last 20 league matches at home and they are unbeaten in their previous 13 (W8, D5).
  • Sunday's 2-2 draw with West Ham was the first time Leicester had conceded in six league games.
  • They have kept 11 clean sheets in their last 16 league matches.
  • The Foxes will be without Jamie Vardy in their starting line-up for the first time this season - he had started 45 successive league games for the Foxes (W28, D11, L6).
  • Their win rate over the past two seasons in the top flight when Vardy has started is 48.3%, compared to 25% without him.
Swansea City

  • Swansea's defeat by Newcastle last weekend was their first in four league games.
  • It was also the first time they have failed to score in an away match in 2016.
  • However, they have only won one of their last six away games (D2, L3).
  • They have kept just one clean sheet in 17 matches away from home in the league this season - a joint-league low with Norwich.

Can't see anything but a win for Leicester here. 1-0 I reckon. Hopefully the players perform though for Swansea.

Swansea are safe, have nothing to play for and lack firepower. I expect a 2-0 win for Leicester here to push them one step closer to the title.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight!


Anyway I think this is the decider in a lot of peoples eyes. We win this we go on to win the league, we don't and we don't.
The confidence of a win without Vardy would spur (!) us on to finish the job, if we don't pick up the 3 points I think we'll shit it and Tottenham don't look like easing up.

Ulloa in for Vardy, no change to the shape.

Schlupp in for Albrighton too. He has pace and pretty much nowt else.

Great stuff so far. Schlupp and Fuchs defending the right corner at the end of the half was class.

Terrible first half from Ashley Williams, as both goals were his fault.

You wouldn't believe he started out as a striker would you?

I remember him as a striker. He went on trial to Man United as a fullback IIRC.

Mahrez is class.

If Leicester win the PL will King be the first player to have league winner medals in three different divisions for the same club?

I'd imagine so yeah.
Also hoping if we win it that Boro win the Championship so De Laet can have a PL and champ winners medal in the same season.

Speaking of King he doesn't seem to want to score today.

Macclesfield Town/Manchester City. It's complicated.

A win and 2 draws needed if Spurs win all their matches.

Don't see Leicester loosing this title.
Vardy's ausence could've sounded worrying but this great performance showed the whole team is well prepared and in the last rounds their will tends to keep rising. Also Ulloa is shining.
