SWANSEA, Wales (AP) - Wilfried Bony scored twice to end Swansea’s five-game winless run in the Premier League with a 2-0 victory over Leicester on Saturday.

The Ivory Coast striker has endured a slow start to the season after appearing at the World Cup, but he now scored in three consecutive games.

Bony’s first came in the 34th minute after initially being picked out by Angel Rangel’s pass. Bony’s slick back-heel flick then freed Gylfi Sigurdsson, who cut the ball back for his teammate to strike into the net.

Bony had a straightforward finish in the 57th after Jefferson Montero and Sigurdsson interchanged cleverly.

While Swansea climbed to sixth place, Leicester is 16th, having collected one point from four games since beating Manchester United.
