Leicester (UK): Leonardo Ulloa deputised seamlessly for Jamie Vardy in a 4-0 victory over Swansea City on Sunday that took Leicester City to within five points of the Premier League title.

Ulloa scored twice as Claudio Ranieri’s men moved eight points clear of Tottenham Hotspur.
Riyad Mahrez and Marc Albrighton also found the net, to put Leicester within touching distance of a title success the like of which world football has rarely seen.
Vardy is likely to miss next Sunday’s trip to Manchester United, having accepted a Football Association misconduct charge over his angry reaction to his dismissal against West Ham, but the one-sided victory over Swansea proved that Leicester do not need their talisman to succeed.
