Premier League day 15: Swansea 0-3 Leicester
Leicester continues its incredible run and solely leads the Premier League 15 days. Mahrez scored a hat-trick while Vardy delivered an assist. Vardy did not score for the 12th consecutive time but he did contribute to his team’s success.
Coach Ranieri comments on the away win.
“It was a fantastic performance. We played like a team and when we play in this way, it’s very good for us. “I asked the players to be compact because Swansea move the ball very quickly, one and two touches and it would be a difficult match. They’d only won one of their last 10 matches so today would have been a day they wanted to come back, they wanted to stay strong with us.
We have to play like we’re desperate on the pitch and play for each other because the team is the leader. When we play in this way, we can make a very good performance. We had to concentrate on this. We are getting better (defensively), but we still have a lot of work to do.
It’s good because everyone was looking at Jamie Vardy, but Mahrez was fantastic. Riyad worked hard for the team, but also scored the goals. I appreciated it very much when Vardy had the ball, but passed it to Riyad (to score the third).
The fans were fantastic. They travelled a great number of miles to be here in the Wales. They are dreaming and this is good.”
