Drinkwater also emphasised that manager Claudio Ranieri retains the support of the players, saying: "It is down to us on the pitch".

What Clement has done is nothing short of incredible. But they're not the same Swansea we look at aghast anymore. We are working on what we need to and that is what we must do every game.

'I have spoken with Riyad and I have spoken with Jamie and we know, ' said Ranieri.

Following the visit of Claudio Ranieri's out-of-form champions and a trip to leaders Chelsea, they have an opportunity to put more points on the board with games against Burnley, Hull, Bournemouth and Middlesbrough. But conceding to Martin Olsson as well would be a bit much, right? His best defensive performance today, and he scored the all-important second. We have to speak together to find the solutions, it is not possible to continue in this way. "I don't think that statement does any harm, as long as they mean it".

"We totally deserved the victory, but we don't have time to reflect on how well it has gone".

Newcomer De Randamie says 'nobody will forget me' after Holm fight
Coming off a knockout, Ronda or anybody else - I'm not saying it's just her, it's just fighters - you come off from a knockout. Back in the Netherlands, kickboxing is king - or queen - and de Randamie's career in the sport made her a superstar.

"Jamie works hard for the team, but this season we have scored very few goals and scoring three goals in one match (against Derby County in the FA Cup on Wednesday) was wonderful and I hope this is good for the future".

"If you were to say to any Leicester fan, "We'll take away the title in exchange of 10 years of mid-table safety", they would all say "No, it's fine - we'll just get relegated".

It was a fifth straight league defeat for the stuttering champions and a 14th loss in 25 games this campaign.

One sign of a team in a slump is the concession of unlikely goals to unlikely players, and Leicester fit the bill there. "We started well but their first two shots on goal are goals, it is very hard to come back from that". For as bad as Leicester have been, they did make it out of their group in a tournament they only got into because of last year's miracle title. I expect a lot from him because he is a very good player.

"They should approach it the way they played previous year - except they can't play that way because they don't have N'Golo Kante any more".
