But Cork plans to take a giant step towards Premier League survival by condemning the Foxes to a fifth defeat in six matches on Sunday.

One man who will be key to the Swans’ survival bid is Gylfi Sigurdsson, who has scored in his last three matches.
The Iceland star has netted nine goals this season and Cork has urged his teammates to use their talisman as much as possible. He said: “In the second half we managed to change everything. We created chances and Gylfi is amazing anywhere near the box.
