The Foxes took another big step towards the Premier League title with a 4-0 win at the King Power Stadium thanks to a brace from Leonardo Ulloa and further goals from Riyad Mahrez and Marc Albrighton.

The Swansea boss watched his side capitulate after captain Ashley Williams’ mistake gifted Mahrez a 10th-minute opener, and big improvements will be needed over the summer if they are to avoid another relegation next season.

Guidolin’s men are safe this season but have now shipped seven goals in their last two games following last week’s 3-0 defeat at Newcastle United.

“Leicester deserve to win the title because this is a very strong team,” Guidolin said. “This is a dream for Leicester and I understand a few weeks ago why Claudio had tears (at Sunderland). I am very happy for him.

“Today I saw my team fight for 90 minutes against the strongest team in the Premier League. We have to improve, (conceding goals) it is not a problem of defenders, it is a problem of the team.”
