Vardy and Morgan give Leicester first win

Jamie Vardy and Wes Morgan both scored as champions Leicester City defeated Swansea City 2-1 at the King Power Stadium to record their first victory of the new Premier League season.

Vardy scored through a brilliant volley in the first half with Danny Drinkwater providing an assist from a pin point pass to Vardy from Leicester’s half.

Morgan doubled the hosts’ advantage shortly after the break with a close-range volley after a set-piece.

Riyad Mahrez then had a penalty saved by Lukasz Fabianski, but Swansea rarely looked like preventing Claudio Ranieri’s 100th Premier League win as a manager, even though Leroy Fer’s late header briefly gave them hope.

Leicester’s first win in three games gets their title defence up and running, while Francesco Guidolin’s men have now suffered two consecutive defeats since their win over Burnley on the opening day.

The Foxes face a tough trip to Liverpool after the international break, while Swansea are at home to Chelsea.
