The Foxes are flying high again. After a comfortable win at the weekend, they’ve stretched their winning run to five and are looking at pretty much their best. Today’s opponents Sunderland really really aren’t. Or at least, I hope for their sake this isn't their best. On current form, this looks pretty one sided.
The more I read this quote, the more it reminds me of a non-league manager hoping to upset the odds in a cup tie. https://t.co/AW0GPFPh5v— Mike McCarthy (@mikemccarthy) April 4, 2017
Form is an odd thing of course. It wasn't long ago that we were feeling about as low as the Black Cats do right now. If it wasn’t possible to turn momentum on it’s head, we wouldn't still be in this league, let alone defending champions. That said, we should honestly be disappointed by anything less than a comfortable win today.

Leicester City Team News:
No new injuries from the weekend, but Morgan stays out as does Mendy, who will see a specialist, so this could be a long term one. Marc Albrighton should be good to go, after recovering from flu like symptoms on Saturday.
Sunderland Team News:
The big one for Sunderland is that top (and basically only) goalscorer Jermaine Defoe is a doubt. An increasingly desperate David Moyes will also be without Paddy McNair, Duncan Watmore, Jan Kirchhoff and Steven Pienaar, while Victor Anichebe is not back to full fitness yet.
Leicester City: Gray keeps his place, Albrighton on the bench as Musa drops out entirely.
Sunderland: Pickford, Jones, Oviedo, Denayer, Cattermole, Rodwell, Larson, Borini, N’dong, Defoe, Koné.
