FULL-TIME

Swansea 0-3 Leicester

A deserved victory for Leicester, who go top of the Premier League. A magnificent season for the Foxes, not quite so magnificent for Swansea who have now only won once since August. 

Swansea 0-3 Leicester

Twenty seconds of stoppage time remaining... Jamie Vardy appeals for a penalty as his shot makes contact with Ashley Williams but Michael Oliver ignores the pleas. 

Swansea 0-3 Leicester

A beautiful out-swinging pass from Modou Barrow, but André Ayew doesn't do it justice - swinging wildly from inside the box.

Swansea 0-3 Leicester

Three minutes of stoppage time. 

SUBSTITUTION

A standing ovation from Leicester fans for their hat-trick hero Riyad Mahrez. The forward soaks up the applause before he is replaced by Jeffrey Schlupp. 

Swansea 0-3 Leicester

Danny Simpson arriving late, running onto a loose ball and shooting in hope - Ashley Williams blocks, but it's a corner for Leicester. 

Rober Huth hooks the ball... another corner... and this one comes to nothing. 

Swansea 0-3 Leicester

Martin Keown

Former Arsenal defender on Final Score

 "They are running free after absorbing all that pressure. Swansea have had 60-70% possession but when they get it, Leicester are amazing on the break."  

Swansea 0-3 Leicester

Swansea continuing to push forward, despite the inevitability of the result. André Ayew forcing a fine save from Kasper Schmeichel at the near post. 

Swansea 0-3 Leicester

Jefferson Montero weaving down the left flank, finding Bafétimbi Gomis with a square ball - but the striker scuffs his shot. Dreadful footwork on a dreadful Swansea afternoon. 

HITS THE WOODWORK

Swansea 0-3 Leicester

The woodwork denies Swansea once again. This time it's Gylfi Sigurdsson arrowing a curler into the corner. The right post does Kasper Schmeichel's work for him and zero remains by Swansea's name. 

Swansea 0-3 Leicester

Only a fool would bet against Leicester scoring a fourth. Jamie Vardy perhaps with a late strike? What a story that would be. The Leicester striker continuing to work and hustle in the final third. Magnificent industry. 

Swansea are down and out. The result a foregone conclusion.

Mahrez and Vardy for Leicester are AMAZING!!! I think Leicester can secure themselves a Champions League spot. #bbcfootball

Leicester only need 3 more wins and a draw from the remaining 23 fixtures #bbcfootball

Swansea 0-3 Leicester

Bafétimbi Gomis, who has not scored since August, is clear on goal thanks to André Ayew improvised pass - but Kasper Schmeichel stands tall, becomes an impenetrable barrier. A smashing save. 

Swansea 0-3 Leicester

Jamie Vardy with a chance... The striker beautifully controls Danny Drinkwater's high ball, but fails to test Swansea's goalkeeper. 

The striker has another chance... but he hits the side-netting from a tight angle. Swansea's fans sing something or other to the Leicester striker and he simply responds by holding up three fingers. 

The score does say it all. 

Swansea 0-3 Leicester

Swansea dashing forward through André Ayew and Bafétimbi Gomis, but the pair are toothless in the final third. There'll be plenty of questions asked of Garry Monk and his players after this match. 

They've been knocked onto the canvas time and time again by the Leicester counter-punch. 

'Leicester - like watching Brazil'

Martin Keown

Former Arsenal defender on Final Score

 "Vardy wants to get that 12th goal? No, he sees someone else and lays it off. It's like watching Brazil on the break, they are running away with the Premier League and you cannot give them enough credit."

GOAL Swansea 0-3 Leicester

Riyad Mahrez

And that's a hat-trick for Riyad Mahrez. 

N'Golo Kanté's driving run puts Swansea's defence on their heels, the midfielder finds Jamie Vardy who unselfishly passes to Mahrez lurking on the right and he scores with a low lasered shot into the bottom left corner of goal. 

The league leaders are ruthless.

Swansea 0-2 Leicester

Swansea playing with greater purpose in this half, though Leicester are comfortably dealing with whatever comes their way. 

Twenty-five minutes remaining. Can Swansea drag themselves back into the game? Can Jamie Vardy score a record-equaling 12th successive goal? 

SUBSTITUTION

Swansea 0-2 Leicester

An attacking substitution from Swansea boss Garry Monk as he chases the game, bringing on forward Modou Barrow for Leon Britton. The Swans effectively playing with four up front. 

Swansea 0-2 Leicester

Jamie Vardy chases a ball over the top, collects with elan and sprints towards the box, but the striker is ushered down a cul de sac by Kyle Bartley. Momentum swinging back Leicester's way, though.

Swansea 0-2 Leicester

Danger for Swansea. Marc Albrighton closing in on goal, but the men in white hold firm and all Leicester get for their efforts is a corner which a commanding Lukasz Fabianski collects. If it wasn't for their goalkeeper, Swansea would have been 5-0 down in the first half. 

Swansea 0-2 Leicester

After a breathless opening to the second half, the tempo slows with possession flowing from one side to the other. 

Jamie Vardy hopefully chases a through ball from N'Golo Kante, but a sliding Lukasz Fabianski calmly gathers on the ground, denying the striker a sniff. 

Swansea 0-2 Leicester

Jefferson Montero adding impetus down the left flank and the Ecuadorian sets Gylfi Sigurdsson free. The midfielder, though, shoots it to the moon and back. This is far more promising from the hosts, however. 

Swansea 0-2 Leicester

Leicester having to do more defending in the opening minutes of this half than they had for the entire first half. Gylfi Sigurdsson with another free-kick wide right, but the Icelandic midfielder's effort misses whomever the intended target was. 

Swansea 0-2 Leicester

Great opportunity for Leicester to win the league and I've not even been on the sherry.

Paul Woolley,Coleorton.

'Monk out, Rodgers in?'

Swansea 0-2 Leicester

What are the odds on Brendan Rodgers for Swansea by New Year? In fairness, I'd rather have Monk (or Gary Neville for that matter) than LvG.

Matt in Surrey.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Swansea 0-2 Leicester

Ki Sung-yueng's header hits the crossbar and that has galvanized the home support. It was a powerful header from Gylfi Sigurdsson's free-kick, but not quite accurate enough.

Swansea playing with greater intent in the opening stages of this half. 

SUBSTITUTION

Swansea 0-2 Leicester

Swansea make one change at half-time, bringing on Jefferson Montero for Wayne Routledge. The second half is under way. 

HALF-TIME

Swansea 0-2 Leicester

Premier League top scorer Jamie Vardy hasn't had many touches of the ball, but he did force the corner from which Leicester scored their opening goal - and he nearly scored only to be denied by a fine Lukasz Fabianski save.

HALF-TIME

Swansea 0-2 Leicester

All the talk was about Jamie Vardy before this match, but it is right winger Riyad Mahrez who has been ever present, covering nearly every blade on the right side of the pitch. He should have scored a first-half hat-trick.

HALF-TIME

Swansea 0-2 Leicester

Boos from a section of the home support as the half-time whistle blows. Leicester dominant and deserving of their 2-0 lead. Swansea must dig themselves out of a deep, deep hole. 

Swansea 0-2 Leicester

Bafetimbi Gomis falls to the ground and loses possession just as Swansea were building some sort of momentum. Still no attempt on goal from the Swans. 

Swansea 0-2 Leicester

Leicester, with two minutes of the first half remaining, put 10 men behind the ball... Swansea, though, can't break down Claudio Ranieri's men. 

Swansea 0-2 Leicester

Leicester dominant in the closing stages of this half. Swansea out of ideas and out of form. The hosts have yet to have a shot on target in this match. 

Swansea 0-2 Leicester

One pass over the top is all it takes to beat Swansea's defence. Leonardo Ulloa is clear through this time. He has time to pick his spot but somehow fails to find the target from 12 yards out. The Foxes should be 3-0 up. 

Swansea 0-2 Leicester

Ashley Williams with a sloppy pass out of defence and the crowd groan. That sums up the home team's afternoon. 

The men in white lacking the quality that's needed to beat a table-topping Leicester. 

Wayne Routledge and Kyle Bartley firing verbal arrows at each other.

Swansea 0-2 Leicester

Swansea losing possession when they get anywhere near the Leicester third. Most of the play taking part in the middle of the pitch at the moment, with Leicester looking the more dangerous with the ball. 

Swansea 0-2 Leicester

Yes, a win over Swansea would move Leicester to the top of the table. Claudio Ranieri's men have been untroubled in this half, which suggests the three points are theirs - unless Garry Monk can fashion a dramatic turnaround.

@BBCSport Leicester fans must be pinching themselves, it's no longer a crazy dream they're actually title contenders! #bbcfootball

All the talk is about Vardy but great to see another @LCFC player scoring goals - Mahrez overshadowed? #bbcfootball #PremierLeague

Why is Montero on the bench he is the best attacking option we have #bbcfootball
