    Leicester v Swansea (15:00 GMT)

    Carlos Carvalhal says he prioritised the transfer deadline day signings of Andre Ayew and Andy King because of their desire to play for Swansea City.

    "If I bring players with quality who don't want to be here it will not help us, these players will," he explained.

    "They are the players who really wanted to come here, who really want to come and play for Swansea."

    Daniel Hodson: To say it's tight at the bottom is a understatement. If West Brom win and results go the right way, one point could separate the bottom seven.

    Michael Hindson: Any signs of Mahrez at Turf Moor yet to just sit on the City bench for the experience...?

  9. "The clubs' decision makers deserve credit"

    Leicester v Swansea (15:00 GMT)

    Guy Mowbray

    Match of the Day commentator

    "It was always unlikely that Riyad Mahrez would feature, but we've heard his name enough this week so let's focus on those who want to and will play a part.

    "Claude Puel has led Leicester from 18th to eighth, and Carlos Carvalhal has started impressively at Swansea. Both appointments raised eyebrows, but the clubs' decision makers - at this stage at least - deserve credit.

    "Swansea chiefs dipped into their credit to fund the re-signing of Andre Ayew on Wednesday.

    "He last played in the same club side as brother Jordan for Marseille in November 2013. Now the 'Sons of Pele' follow in the illustrious footsteps of Ivor and Len Allchurch and Cliff and Bryn Jones as brothers in the same Swansea team."

  10. Mahrez mayhem

    Leicester v Swansea (15:00 GMT)

    Leicester forward Riyad Mahrez has missed training for the last week, after a potential deadline-day move to Manchester City fell through.

    He handed in a transfer request and has made it clear he no longer wishes to stay at the club so where do both parties go from here?

    Mahrez hasn't been considered for today's match against Swansea and he also missed the defeat at Everton.
