Leicester City 4-0 Swansea City - REPORT

Leicester City continued their fairytale march toward the Premier League title with a 2-0 victory over Swansea City at the King Power Stadium.

Victory means they are eight points clear of Tottenham Hotspur with just three games to play and require only five points to become champions, no matter what the North Londoners can muster.

Riyad Mahrez set the Foxes on their way as early as the tenth minute, pouncing on a dreadful Ashley Williams pass to slot home emphatically past Lukasz Fabianski.

Leonardo Ulloa, standing in for the suspended Jamie Vardy, doubled the lead after heading home Danny Drinkwater’s cross to put the Foxes 2-0 clear at the break.

The game was effectively over when Ulloa bagged his second on the hour mark, finishing off Jeffrey Schlupp’s deflected cross at the far post. And substitute Marc Albrighton slammed home Demarai Gray’s miscued effort to complete the job.

It all means that Leicester can complete the unlikeliest of title triumphs back at the King Power against Everton in two games time, depending on results. They next face Manchester United at Old Trafford.
