Jamie Vardy wrote his name into Barclays Premier League history by scoring for the 11th successive game for Leicester City against Manchester United last Saturday, overtaking Ruud van Nistelrooy.

And if the England front-man scores again, in Wales, he will pull level with all-time record holder Jimmy Dunne, an Irishman who scored 18 goals in 12 successive First Division games for Sheffield United during the 1931-32 campaign.

It is a remarkable run and one that has enabled Leicester to stay level on points with Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Leicester would now be top but for the 1-1 draw with United, but the point extended their unbeaten league run to seven games while the Foxes remain the only team in the division yet to lose away from home.

They have won four and drawn three away from home. Their 15 away points is the joint best in the Premier League, with Arsenal also boasting 15 points on their travels. Leicester also have 15 away goals (only Arsenal have more with 16).

Swansea, meanwhile, are now 15th in the Premier League following their 1-0 defeat at Liverpool, their third loss in four games.

Swansea, though, should be confident, having won their last three home league games against Leicester.
