Wilfried Bony struck once in each half to give Swansea an overdue win and continue Leicester’s poor form.
After a week largely dominated by the events at Stoke City last Sunday, particularly an alleged dive by Stoke City winger Victor Moses for a penalty, Swansea City got their season back on track this evening with a deserved and comfortable win over a tepid Leicester City side in South Wales.
Swansea started on the front foot and looked to monopolise possession against a Leicester City side who appeared to have a clear game plan of catching the Swans on the break, but failed to have the requisite quality on the rare forays forward that they did have.
Chances were squandered for the hosts early on, but a goal always seemed to be coming and, when it did arrive, it was one of the highest quality – Wilfried Bony exchanging passes with Gylfi Sigurdsson before calmly slotting the ball past a helpless Kasper Schmeichel.
Leicester managed to get through to half time just one goal behind and Nigel Pearson attempted to reorganise at half time, but the game continued in much the same pattern after the break before Bony grabbed his second, a tap in put on a plate by a jinking run from exciting Ecuadorian wide man Jefferson Montero.
The Foxes made three changes in an attempt to change the momentum of the game, but nearly fell three behind when Jonjo Shelvey crashed a fine long range effort against the bar, before the game fizzled out into a comfortable victory for Garry Monk’s side.
