MATCH FACTS

Since beating Leicester in their first Premier League meeting in October 2014, the Swans have lost each of their last four, scoring once and conceding 11.
However, the Foxes’ 3-0 victory at Liberty Stadium last season ended a run of three consecutive league defeats there, two of which were in the Championship.
None of the last 12 meetings in all competitions between these sides has ended as a draw, with Leicester winning nine and Swansea three.
Riyad Mahrez scored a hat-trick in this exact fixture last season, the first scored by a Leicester player in an away Premier League game.
Leicester are the only Premier League side yet to score a goal in 2017 and have gone five games without one. The last top-flight side to fail to score in their opening six games of a calendar year were Stoke City in 1985.
Swansea have already conceded 54 Premier League goals this season – the joint-most they have ever done in a Premier League season (also 54 in 2013-14).
The Foxes remain without an away win in the Premier League since a 2-0 victory at Sunderland last April – they are on a run of 14 games without a win (D5 L9). Only once before in the Premier League have they had a longer winless away run, going 16 games without a win between December 2001 and October 2003.
Last season, Jamie Vardy (10) and Riyad Mahrez (12) scored a combined 22 goals away from home in the Premier League – this season they have scored three (Vardy on one, Mahrez with two).
Seven of Gylfi Sigurdsson’s last 11 home Premier League goals for Swansea City have been scored from set pieces (four from free-kicks, three penalties).
Sigurdsson has scored in his last three Premier League games – the only player to score in four consecutive PL matches for Swansea is Danny Graham in October 2011.
