Ghana midfielder Daniel Amartey displayed his immense potential by excelling as he played the entire duration, helping English champions Leicester to win their first match of the season by beating Swansea 2-1 on Saturday.

The 21-year-old has struggled for playing time since joining the Foxes from Danish giants FC Copenhagen last season.

Injuries in the team forced coach Claudio Ranieri to start Amartey in a four-man midfield including Marc Albrighton, Danny Drinkwater and Riyad Mahrez and the Ghanaian excelled.

It was his first start and second appearance of the season after coming off the bench in 68th minute against Hull City in their opening 2-1 defeat.

Jamy Vardy put the Foxes ahead on 32 minutes before captain Wes Morgan doubled in the 52nd minute from close range.

Leroy Fer got the consolation for the Swans with ten minutes left on the clock.
