Leonardo Ulloa, Leicester City's top scorer, can handle the growing expectations on him says manager Nigel Pearson.

The five-goal striker has had an impressive start in the Premier League with goals against Manchester United and Arsenal.

The Argentinian is joint fifth in the scoring charts but Pearson strongly believes his outlook on the game hasn't changed.

Today, Leicester City play Swansea away at the Liberty Stadium kicking off at 5.30pm.

Leo has settled in very well and has had an outstanding start in terms of goal return. His all-round play has been excellent.

He certainly hasn't had any extra pressure put on him from within. My view on strikers is goals are what they are but the way we play we need forward thinking players who also understand how the team functions.

– Manager, Nigel Pearson
