Champions Leicester host Swansea at the King Power stadium on Saturday afternoon as they look to kickstart their season after a sluggish start to their title defence. Read on to find out Tips Daddy betting tips for Leicester vs Swansea.
A disappointing opening day defeat at Hull was followed by a spiriting point against Arsenal, but fans of the Foxes will be anxious for them to record their first three points of the season to fend off any doubts that this season may prove too big a challenge for them.
Visitors Swansea were also left reeling by newly-promoted Hull last weekend, slumping to a 2-0 home defeat despite firing twenty shots at goal. That wayward finishing has left fans wondering if the sanctioning of departures for attacking quarter Bafetimbi Gomis, Alberto Paloschi, Andre Ayew and Eder may have been a mistake.
New striker Fernando Llorente has underwhelmed in his opening two matches for the Swans since his move from Sevilla, while fellow new striker Borja Baston will be desperate to show his potential and debut after a £15.5 million move from Atletico Madrid.
Leicester’s recent form in clashes with Swansea has been exceptional – winning the three most recent ties and scoring nine goals without reply, with Riyad Mahrez bagging four in the two meetings last season.
Since their 4-0 hammering at the King Power back in April, the Swans have won both their away matches but that run will be tested on Saturday as Leicester are unbeaten in their last 14 home league games –a run stretching back to last September.
In their last three meetings, Leicester have started quickly – scoring after five, ten and fifteen minutes, and for the Claudio Ranieri’s side to lead both at the break and at the final whistle again is priced at 7/4.
Based on the average score lines of their past three encounters, Leicester will win comfortably at 3-0 – for this exact score to repeat itself is available at a tempting 14/1.
The hosts have no new injury concerns following last week’s draw with Nampalys Mendy starting in midfield ahead of Andy King – as the decision on how to reshape following N’Golo Kante’s departure continues. Record signing Ahmed Musa had to be content with a place on the bench, but may replace Shinji Okazaki up front. For Swansea, new striker Borja Baston is likely to come into the attack, possibly in place of Llorente.
