Leroy Fer and Mo Barrow show promise despite Swansea defeat

Francesco Guidolin praised Claudio Ranieri, Jamie Vardy and the rest of the Leicester squad after his side's 2-1 loss.

Swansea showed some glimpses of what is to come despite going down 2-1 to defending champions Leicester City on Saturday.

Jamie Vardy and Wes Morgan gave the home team a two-goal lead before Leroy Fer pulled one back for Swansea in the 81st minute.

The better second half was evidence that this side has some self-belief, and the continuing good work of Mo Barrow gives at least one reason to be optimistic despite Swansea having now lost two of their opening three matches.

Swansea's new-look defence must stay tight to limit Leicester's threat

Francesco Guidolin feels Swansea must be a better job at adapting to teams like Hull that sit back and defend.

To say Leicester bucked a trend last season by winning the Premier League is an understatement. It has been equally refreshing to see the club continue to break tradition by managing to hold on to most of their star players this summer.

Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez were courted by Arsenal but both men have signed new contracts to stay with the smaller club, at least in the short term. Not only have Leicester managed to retain their brightest attacking players, they've added another in Ahmed Musa.

Swansea slip to surprise defeat as Hull continue to shock Premier League

Swansea coach Francesco Guidolin says his side didn't deserve to lose against Hull.

Hull spoiled Swansea's home opener in the Premier League with a 2-0 win on Saturday.

Some familiar problems resurfaced for Swansea. With Hull defending both narrowly and deep, the Swans could not find a way to turn a significant possession advantage into clear-cut chances on goal. With Borja Baston unable to play through injury, coach Francesco Guidolin had few options to change the Swans' attack after a solid first half display produced no goals. A frustrating second half saw diminishing returns...

Sigurdsson to return to Swansea XI vs. Hull before schedule takes tough turn
