Dutch international Luciano Narsingh and 2million summer signing Joel Asoro showed glimpses of pace and skill, but City’s full backs generally kept them quiet.Asoro did beat Darnell Johnson to create one opening in the first half, but his Swedish countryman Viktor Johansson saved comfortably.Summer signing Viktor Johansson has enjoyed a fine start to his Leicester City under 23s career(Image: Plumb Images/Leicester City FC via Getty Images)Midway through the first period, Reghba moved off the left flank and into the middle and that’s when City really started to threaten.Receiving the ball to feet, Reghba spun on the edge of the box and was only denied by a last ditch block.His movement kept the Swansea defenders on their toes and there was a sense that the goal was not too far away. On the stroke of half time, it came.Wright again fed the ball into Reghba with his back to goal, and again he twisted his man, Simon Paulet bringing the Irishman down right on the 18 yard line.Muskwe stepped up and despite a goal drought of 15 months thanks to injury, he confidently fired into the top corner.
