Swansea City captain Ashley Williams was involved in a post-match bust-up with Riyad Mahrez on Saturday afternoon.

The spat followed a three-goal performance from Leicester City's Mahrez, whose hat-trick sunk the Swans 3-0 at home as their poor form continued, with them boasting just the one win from their last 11 games now as the pressure on their manager grows.

Shortly after the final whistle, it was revealed that tempers flared in the tunnel following the game's end, with the frustration too much for Swansea's captain as he clashed with the man who condemned his team to another defeat.

Heated moments

After a couple of low profile altercations during the match, albeit ones that are expected to occur between opposing attackers and defenders during a game of football, Williams and Mahrez were involved in a clash outside Swansea's dressing room after the 90 minutes which resulted in the Algerian being ushered out of the Liberty Stadium by one of his club's officials.

It is understood that Williams then continued the argument, the Welsh international leaving his team's ground in order to find the Foxes' team bus and, in turn, Mahrez.

However, he did not get onto their coach and soon returned to the dressing room and his teammates.

Clubs low-key about incidents

Both clubs commented on the spat between the players, albeit saying little, perhaps in an attempt to play it down.

In his post-match press conference, Swansea boss Garry Monk was quizzed about the clash, but was either uninformed about it or trying to cool the media's attention, saying that he "wouldn't know anything about it."

Leicester, on the other hand, stated that their player did not attempt to make his way into the Swans' dressing room, via Sky Sports, but did not make any further comments regarding the issue.
