Our resident injury guru Ben Dinnery gives us all the latest team news ahead of today's match
Swansea will be looking to capitalise on Leicester’s recent dip in form after last weekends’ controversial loss at the Britannia Stadium. Jonjo Shelvey returns from a one game domestic ban & his appearance will add steel to the midfield while Angel Rangel is in line to make his 300th appearance for the Jacks with Jazz Richards [knee] and Dwight Tiendalli [groin] both ruled out. Rory Donnelly and Jordi Amat are progressing however the pair are still around two weeks away. Leon Britton has stepped up his recovery from a bruised patella but we may have to wait until after the international break before we see a return to first team action.
Leicester have been unfortunate since their win over Manchester United - results have not reflected their performance - but goals win games & the Foxes have failed to score in 50% of their matches so far this season. Jamie Vardy was a late introduction at St James’ Park last weekend with Nigel Pearson preferring to go with a 4-5-1 formation – a change to try & accommodate winger Marc Albrighton - however I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Leicester revert back to their more familiar 4-4-2 set-up. No fresh injury concerns with long-term absentees Matthew Upson [foot] and Zoumana Bakayoko [ACL] still out.
