FULL-TIME

Leicester 2-1 Swansea

Lads? Lads?

Get inside and get a shower quick.

Those were epic performances in truly atrocious conditions.

Leicester get their first win, but Swansea can be proud of their second-half fightback.

CLOSE AGAIN

Leicester 2-1 Swansea

Yes, yes, yes, yes, goaaaa....

No. Ahmed Musa runs in on goal but his low shot is saved by Lukasz Fabianski.

Leicester 2-1 Swansea

As a spectacle this has been brilliant.

Not great to play in, I imagine.

Seconds remaining.

CLOSE!

Leicester 2-1 Swansea

Riyad Mahrez curls a low shot just past Lukasz Fabianski's right-hand post.

CRUCIAL CLEARANCE

Leicester 2-1 Swansea

Danny Simpson makes a vital clearance from Modou Barrow's cross.

It's nervy, it's wet, it's... er... wet.

SUBSTITUTION

Leicester 2-0 Swansea

Jack Cork is off and striker Oliver McBurnie, 20, comes on for Swansea.

McBurnie scored twice on his debut as Francesco Guildolin's side beat Peterborough 3-1 on Tuesday to progress in the EFL Cup.  

GOAL - Leicester 2-1 Swansea

Leroy Fer

Finally. Joy for Modou Barrow and his crossing.

The Gambian delivers another peach of a delivery and this time Leroy Fer is on the end of it to head past Ron Robert Zieler.

Precision on that header.

SUBSTITUTION

Leicester 2-0 Swansea

Here's a rare one - Shinji Okazaki is replaced.

In all fairness, he'll be delighted to come off - big effort in horrendous conditions.

Leonardo UIloa comes on to replace him.

Standard.

SUBSTITUTION

Leicester 2-0 Swansea

Leicester's record signing Ahmed Musa comes on for Marc Albrighton.

It's still raining and it appears one of the floodlights has been damaged by the lightning. The MacGyvers in the crowd have been using their mobile phones to light up the dark areas of the stadium.

You guys!!!

Leicester 2-0 Swansea

The Foxes go hunting for a third but this time Shinji Okazaki falls in the area at the vital moment after another quick counter.

YELLOW CARD

Leicester 2-0 Swansea

Un-Fer?

The Swansea midfielder goes into the book either for his foul on Riyad Mahrez or for protesting to ref Roger East.

Moments later, Marc Albrighton swings in a free-kick that Wes Morgan only just fails to get a toe to.

That could have been a second goal for the captain.

It's still raining.

Leicester 2-0 Swansea

3 - Riyad Mahrez has missed three of his last four penalties for Leicester City in the Premier League. Imprecise.

SUBSTITUTION

Leicester 2-0 Swansea

Now then. You read how Kasper Schmeichel came out to prevent Fernando Llorente getting on the end of a through-ball.

Well, he hurt himself in the process and has been replaced by summer signing Ron Robert Zieler. Great name.

Mahrez has placed it and if you do that the 'keeper has to go the wrong way.

It was a dolly mixture. 

Fabianski was lying there waiting for it. It was a poor kick.

MISSED PENALTY

Leicester 2-0 Swansea

Oh Riyad!!!

Mahrez steps up and tries to slot his kick to Lukasz Fabianski's right - but the keeper guesses right.

Okazaki's follow-up is also saved by the Swansea man.

PENALTY TO LEICESTER

Leicester 2-0 Swansea

At one end, Kasper Schmeichel comes out to beat Fernando Llorente to the ball.

At the other end, Shinji Okazaki is fouled by Jordi Amat in the area.

Leicester can put this game out of sight.

GOAL - Leicester 2-0 Swansea

Wes Morgan

Smashed!

A corner comes in from the right. Both Leicester central defenders Robert Huth and Wes Morgan go for the ball, but it's the skipper who has the final bite and lashes his volley into the roof of the net.

You don't stop those.

Leicester 1-0 Swansea

The old Vardy-Drinkwater give-and-go almost pays dividends again. This time Swansea track back and Vardy's cross from wide right is dealt with by the defence.

KICK-OFF

Leicester 1-0 Swansea

We are back under way.

Leicester 1-0 Swansea

The players are back out on the pitch - fresh dry shirts and no doubt a quick blowdry. It's still raining.

Someone please name someone English playing and performing better and more consistent in every game than @DannyDrinkwater

HALF-TIME

Leicester 1-0 Swansea

Get those towels out!

Leicester deserve that lead, but the Swans do look a threat especially down the right through Modou Barrow.

GREAT SAVE!

Leicester 1-0 Swansea

Shinji Okazaki smashes a decent strike from 20 yards towards goal which Lukasz Fabianski has to tip over the bar.

There cannot be much more rain left in those clouds - it is pelting it down.

The call him "Wheels" Barrow

Leicester 1-0 Swansea

It's that Modou Barrow again. He should be renamed Modou "I create a lot of chances" Barrow.

The 23-year-old Gambian powers down the right and delivers another great ball which is headed into the six-yard area by Wayne Routledge. Leicester manage to clear though.

Lurking

Leicester 1-0 Swansea

Swansea are now starting to look dangerous. 

Modou Barrow plays in a cross from the right that Leicester full-back Danny Simpson has to head clear with Fernando Llorente lurking like a striker who lurks.

Vardy at it again

Leicester 1-0 Swansea

Garth Crooks

Former Spurs striker and BBC football expert

I can't believe defenders are still falling for it. We saw it week in, week out last season.

How many times have we seen Leicester do that? 

Swansea are playing a high line and Vardy is immediately onto it.

GOAL - Leicester 1-0 Swansea

Jamie Vardy

Leave that Vardy alone in your Fantasy teams - his party has just started!

A lovely bout of one-touch football on the edge of the Leicester area ends with Danny Drinkwater playing the ball over the top for Jamie Vardy to chase.

The England striker latches on to the pass and smashes his shot in off the post.

That's his first of the season.

YELLOW CARD

Leicester 0-0 Swansea

Leicester defender Robert Huth goes into the book for a foul on Modou Barrow - it's a card each for the sides.

A Swansea effort!!

Leicester 0-0 Swansea

The Swans enjoy a (very) brief spell in the Foxes' half - Gylfi Sigurdsson even has the audacity to have a shot, which curls into the chest of Kasper Schmeichel.

Leicester 0-0 Swansea

Swansea haven't offered much as an attacking threat - they've been camped in their own half.

Keeper Lukasz Fabianski hasn't had much to do, yet. Leicester are relentless at the moment.

Leicester 0-0 Swansea

Kyle Naughton is finding the going tough against Jamie Vardy on this skiddy surface.

The ball bounces off the defender and into the England striker's path - he runs towards the byeline, tries to cut the ball back but it had already gone out of play.

There's a big mistake in this game, I can sense it.

Leicester 0-0 Swansea

Riyad Mahrez steps up but fires the free-kick a few yards wide and high of the Swansea goal.

A poor effort to be fair.

BIG CHANCE!

Leicester 0-0 Swansea

The ball is played over the top for Jamie Vardy, who runs on to it but is brought down by Federico Fernandez,

Yellow for the defender, free-kick for Leicester.

This is a huge chance...

One of you guys!

Poor communication between Riyad Mahrez and Danny Simpson at the far post results in both fluffing a potentially good opportunity in front of goal.

It's throwing it down at the King Power, by the way.

Leicester 0-0 Swansea

Swansea's Kyle Naughton's just been knocked out by a Jamie Vardy shot. He seems OK, but he might not know what day it is.

HALF A CHANCE

Leicester 0-0 Swansea

A Leicester ball from the left is floated in and defender Robert Huth flicks the ball towards goal with his head.

Keeper Lukasz Fabianski collects, but it's one of those that might have been a problem if it had drifted either side of the keeper.

Bright start for the Foxes.
