Swansea have nothing to fear against Leicester: Lukasz Fabianski

London: Swansea City are buoyed by their encouraging performance in last weekend`s narrow 1-0 loss to Liverpool and will go into Saturday`s Premier League clash against high-flying Leicester City without any fear, goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski has said.

Garry Monk`s men, currently at 15th spot, head into the match against second-placed Leicester with just one win in their last 11 league games.

"Everyone would have said Liverpool were flying after beating Manchester City and winning a Europa League game, but we did okay against them," Fabianski was quoted as saying by British media.

"We shouldn`t really be concerned about what we`re going to face, although they will be a tough team.

"I believe if we continue to work like we have done over the last week -- we`re an honest group -- and we continue to believe in the football that we play, I think we can turn this season around and be in a good place."

Manager Monk has played down Leicester`s chances of lifting the title but has tipped them for a top-six finish.

"I think history shows you that in terms of whether they are title contenders, the answer is possibly not. But I think for sure they are genuine top-six contenders," Monk said.

"The way they have started the season, they have put themselves in a great position. I am sure they just want to keep that momentum going and see how far they can go."
