The Liberty Stadium was humming as Swansea City won its first ever top-flight match against Leicester City to break a five-match Premier League winless skid on Saturday in Wales.

Wilfried Bony scored both goals for Swans, 2-0, who cruised to the win against the suddenly-struggling Foxes.

Swansea is now a goal behind Arsenal for fifth place in the Premier League, while Leicester drops to 16th place on 9 points.

Bony and Sigurdsson teamed up for this beautiful piece of soccer, a 1-2 that included a back heel pass, neat side flick and clinical finish. It was Sigurdsson’s 7th assist of the season to go with Bony’s third goal of the season.

Then Bony struck again, with Leicester playing a defense that would’ve been a problem on the training ground against reserves, let alone Swansea.

All four of Bony’s goals have come in the last three matches.

Riyad Mahrez took a bending shot from 20 yards in the 66th minute that bounded wide of the goal. It was among Leicester City’s best chances to that point, and the Foxes made three simultaneous changes just a few moments later.

Esteban Cambiasso hilariously missed an open-goal shot from 1 yard away in stoppage time, a failed opportunity that summed up the day for the Foxes. It even had a wry smile on the Inter legend’s face.
