Enzo Maresca, unleashing his full arsenal after Saturday’s FA Cup rotation, watched his Leicester City tear through Swansea in the Championship.

Dewsbury-Hall, bursting through the high line, opened the scoring early, and the Foxes peppered the goal with missed chances before Patson Daka converted a controversial penalty in the 69th minute, his run deemed unfairly halted by a Swansea defender.

Substitute Yunus Akgun, with a deft finish added a delightful third. While a late Swansea consolation marred the clean sheet, Leicester cruised to victory, with Akgun celebrating his maiden Foxes goal in the Championship.

Akgun joined the Foxes from Galatasaray over the summer on loan with an obligation to buy.

The 23-year-old now has two goals and two assists in 18 appearances in all competitions for Leicester this season.

The Turkish international has seen his playing time increase recently after a spell on the injury list and struggling to break into the team after.

Akgun has featured in four of the last five games in all competitions and scored in the last two.

He reacted to the victory on his official X account with a tweet of himself celebrating with his teammates alongside the message: “Fasten you seat belts! The flight continues…”

With this win, Leicester increased their score tally to 69 at the top of the table, while Swansea remained at 33 points.
