Goodbye!

Swansea beat Leicester

One of these Premier League managers is going to bed with a smile tonight, the other might well have a sleepless night.

However your Sunday night pans out, make sure you're back with us again tomorrow. We're be all over Bournemouth v Manchester City from 18:30ish (GMT).

Cheerio!

Swansea 2-0 Leicester

From champions of England to chumps of England. 

No team in the top four divisions has won fewer points than Leicester in 2017. The Foxes have managed just the one point, level with Aston Villa, Coventry and Leyton Orient.

There was one piece of bad news for Paul Clement though. Winger Nathan Dyer trudged off with an Achilles injury after just five minutes, going down after landing awkwardly with no contact.

"The initial prognosis is it doesn't look good," says Clement.

'No time to reflect'

Swansea boss Paul Clement: "We are in good form at the moment. Back-to-back home wins is very pleasing.

"We have worked hard on the training ground to get the basics right, nothing complicated. That has brought about confidence as they know what they are doing on the pitch.

"There's a massive amount to do. We are working on what we need to and that's what we must do every game.

"We don't have time to reflect on how well it has gone. We have got Chelsea coming up next."

Would it surprise you that Claudio Ranieri is the favourite with several bookmakers to be the next Premier League manager out of work? Odds-on with one...

Survival the main aim

Swansea 2-0 Leicester

Leicester City

More from Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri speaking to BBC Sport: "Unbelievable. We started well. We wanted to make a good result against another team near the relegation zone. 

"We make something good but the first shot on goal they score and then the second again. From there it was very difficult to get back. 

"Our mind is on the Premier League. The FA Cup and Champions League is something different.

"We want to play well and be safe in the Premier League. Our main target is to be safe in the Premier League."

Dilly ding, dilly dong. Does Claudio need to wake up? Looks to me like Leicester need a lot more than a little bit of luck...

'Not possible to continue in this way'

Swansea 2-0 Leicester

Leicester City

Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri: "I wanted the start of a 'new season' today, but it is the same, it is unbelievable.

"We started well but their first two shots on goal are goals, it is very difficult to come back from that. It is unbelievable this season.

"We have two problems. Conceding goals, and not scoring. We have to speak together to find the solutions, it is not possible to continue in this way.

"The machine is not broken but when you don't play at a maximum level it is a difficult battle. They were more determined than us, that's the truth.

"We stay together, we work very well in training but we need a little luck to move our confidence. I am very strong, very confident. I believe in everything.

"It just takes the right moment to turn this around."

Swans players responding to Clement

Swansea 2-0 Leicester

Swansea City

Swansea manager Paul Clement on his impact since replacing Bob Bradley: "My job was to come in in January and put confidence back into the team, get them playing better and get them organised. I'm happy with the response from the players."

On both goals being scored by defenders: "We play our full-backs high, Martin Olsson was in an advanced position and it was a nicely worked goal. He had a bit to do, it was strong contact that beat the keeper at the near post. The second goal was a centre-back assist and the volley from Alfie Mawson was lovely technique. We've done well from set pieces."

We totally deserved win - Clement

Swansea 2-0 Leicester

Swansea City

Swansea manager Paul Clement speaking to BBC Sport: "We have had a really good start and I'm very pleased with the players. We totally deserved that victory.

"The goal before half-time put us in strong position, we were solid all of the game. We had a couple of moments around 60/61 minutes where Leicester threatened but otherwise we were good."

'It is not acceptable'

Swansea 2-0 Leicester

Leicester City

Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater speaking to Sky Sports: "Frustrating. It is hard to put it into words. We need to get out of this. If we keep on fighting hopefully it will turn. We need to keep on pushing ourselves and make sure we turn it around.

"We need to keep fighting for every ball. We are a bunch of honest lads. We work hard.

"We know everyone is disappointed, we are more than anyone. 

"It is another loss. It is not acceptable. We need to get things right quickly.

"We have not changed much. May we are not getting the rub of green or something. We believe in ourselves as long as we keep our heads I am sure it will come.

Asked if the team are behind Claudio Ranieri, Drinkwater said: "Of course we are. It is down to us on the pitch. The manager has our support."

I am not sure if Ranieri is the man now for Leicester.

"We have two problems," says Foxes boss Claudio Ranieri. "We concede and we don't score."

That's quite a problem for a football side. Full quotes coming up from the gaffer.

'We feel we can take on anyone'

Swansea 2-0 Leicester

Swansea City

Swansea defender Alfie Mawson: "Any goal is a positive for myself and the club but I do like to score. I have got a habit at the moment of being in the right place at the right time.

"The manager told us we are going to work really hard and we have. He's turned it right around, we are so positive we feel we can take on anyone."

Anyone already stuck Alfie Mawson in their fantasy football team? Kudos to those who have. 

He has bagged three Premier League goals in 2017 - no defender has managed more.

Definitely going in mine next week.

Paul Clement's impact could not have been predicted. Certainly not after that underwhelming spell at Derby.

Swansea have won four of their six Premier League games since Clement's appointment.

Before Clement? They won three out of 19 matches.

Leicester didn't create anything. 

They threw a few balls into the box in the second half. Vardy was very off-colour, nowhere near the level of last season.

They are in big trouble.

Swansea have good shape. Mawson is young, aggressive, bright.

That dance is going to "become a craze", reckons Alfie Mawson. He's joking. I hope he's joking. A half-hearted Macarena in my eyes.

'Hard weeks, easy weekends'

Swansea defender Alfie Mawson: "It fell nicely for me, I was delighted. I scored one like that in League One at Millwall but it's a bit different on the big stage.

"The celebration was between me and my missus, I did it when I was at Wycombe so I will carry it on.

"The new manager has changed a few things, the players have never worked this hard. He has a saying, 'hard week, easy weekend' and it is showing."

Leicester can't sack Claudio Ranieri. Can they? Who would they get in to replace him? Nigel Pearson knows how to get them out of a relegation scrap...

Aman: No goals since NYE, Not won in ages, shambolic defending, zero urgency. This title hangover may just see them get relegated. 

Gregory Mandapat: Swansea and Hull have already made their coaching moves and it's paying dividends. Is it too little too late to sack Ranieri?

I am thinking, 'have I seen enough from Leicester to think they can get out of it?'

I am not so sure.

They were better in the second half but powderpuff in the first.

Paul Clement jogs on to the pitch at the final whistle with the confidence of a manager who can do wrong. Even the smooth soles on his leather brogues show no sign of buckling on the greasy turf.

He gees up the Swansea fans on the far side with some fist-pumping and hand-tingling clapping.

The Swans leapfrog today's opponents with that win, up to 15th and four points clear of safety. Leicester are down to 17th, a point above the drop zone.

Swansea run the clock down with another sub. Dutch winger Luciano Narsingh replaces Wayne Routledge, himself a very early sub for the injured Nathan Dyer.

Leicester have not scored in the Premier League since New Year's Eve. That's a serious hangover. Robert Huth tries to barge his way through the Swansea box after another set-piece, but is pulled up for handball.

That earlier corner comes to nothing, leading to Wes Morgan going to retrieve the ball in front of the Swansea fans in the opposite corner. He tries to wrestle Marcus Olsson for it, leading to plenty of cat-calls from the home supporters. They're having fun at Leicester's expense.
