78271100Black Stars winger Andre Ayew will come face to face with his international team-mate Jeffrey Schlupp as Leicester City travel to South Wales to take on Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday.

The last eight league and cup games between these sides have been won by the home team – a sequence stretching back to 1986 (BBC Sports) but Leicester are in devastating form and could frustrate 15th-placed Swans who are under pressure.

While Andre Ayew will go straight into a starting role for Swansea Schlupp must work his way back to claiming a starting berth since losing his spot after the last international break.

Ayew’s six (6) goals in 14 games makes him the highest scoring player in the Swansea City side so far while Schlupp, 22, has scored once in 13 outings for the Foxes.

Foxes boss Claudio Ranieri could restore the Hamburg-born back in his starting line-up though he has been predicted to start from the bench.

Swansea have used 19 players in the current Premier League campaign, fewer than any other side.

The Foxes have lost one of their last 18 league games (W11, D6) – BBC Sports.

If Leicester’s Jamie Vardy scores for a 12th successive league game he will equal the English top-flight record set by Sheffield United’s Jimmy Dunne in the 1931-32 season.
