Nathan Dyer: Swansea City winger out for season with Achilles injury

Martin Olsson's second goal was more the product of fine teamwork by Swansea. He's very important and now he is very concentrated on the last part of the season. There's only one group of players in the league that I wouldn't want to be other than Leicester and that's Sunderland, who are also in big trouble.

And even though Ranieri has a vote of confidence from the Leicester City hierarchy, the pressure is mounting.

The champions went down 2-0 at Swansea, taking them down to 17th in the table and one point from safety after last year's sensational campaign.

Leicester's astonishing decline could see them become the first English champions to be relegated from the top flight since Manchester City in 1938. I think Riyad is getting better.

The club's relegation battle continues in a fortnight when they head to league leaders Chelsea, indicating to Clement that putting a few decent results together is pleasing but not quite everything.

"I wanted the start of a "new season" today but it is the same, it is unbelievable", Ranieri said.

'Jamie works hard for the team but this season we have scored very few goals and scoring three goals in one match (against Derby in midweek) was incredible and I hope this is good for the future. He's trying. He's positive and I'm very, very happy when he's positive.

Minutes (or more than six matches) Leicester's goal drought in the league has gone on for.

"Sevilla are a really good side with a real pedigree in Europe, and it's going to be very hard for Leicester the way they are playing". The former Derby manager has had an immediate impact in the Premier League and his decision to bring in Tom Carroll is looking like a brilliant piece of business, while Gylfi Sigurdsson is flourishing under him.

"If they go from staying up, after being on the brink of relegation, to champions the following season and going down the next, it nearly improves the miracle of winning the title".

That Leicester could play Swansea and not just lose, but get completely played off the pitch, should be the end of any discussion about whether the team is going to turn things around.
