Leicester City looks to move three points closer to their fairytale Premier League title when they visit the Stadium of Light to face lively but troubled Sunderland on Sunday (Watch live, 8:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and online via Live Extra).
The Black Cats of Sunderland have looked much better since January’s transfer work, but Sam Allardyce has so far failed in getting consistent wins over the line. The USMNT’s DeAndre Yedlin again starts at right back.
Leicester will again trot out their solid XI in the hopes of moving as many as 10 points clear of Spurs, depending on how the White Hart Lane sets at 11 a.m. when it hosts Manchester United.
Sunderland: Mannone, Yedlin, Kaboul, Kone, PVA, Kirchhoff, Cattermole, M’Vila, Khazri, Borini, Defoe. Subs: Jones, Larsson, Rodwell, N’Doye, Pickford, O’Shea, Lens.
Leicester City: Schmeichel, Morgan, Huth, Fuchs, Simpson, Kante, Drinkwater, Albrighton, Okazaki, Mahrez, Vardy. Subs: Schwarzer, King, Amartey, Schlupp, Gray, Ulloa, Wasilewski.
