The magic number of wins for Leicester is down to three with a 2-0 victory over relegation-threatened Sunderland at the Stadium of Light Sunday afternoon.

A 60-yard Danny Drinkwater through ball in the 66th minute sent Vardy off to the races ahead of Sunderland defender Younès Kaboul before he calmly finished off his 20th Premier League goal of the season past Vito Mannone. The striker added a 96th minute insurance marker to complete the brace and push Leicester that much closer to the title.

The Foxes now turn their eyes to the Tottenham and Manchester United match-up at White Hart Lane where Spurs will attempt to reduce the deficit between themselves and Leicester.
