Predicted Sunderland and Leicester City line-ups

Sunderland Stadium of Light

Here are the possible teams for Sunderland against Leicester City.

To be played on Saturday 16th May 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Stadium of Light, Sunderland

Odds: Sunderland 7/4, Draw 23/10, Leicester 9/5

Sunderland and Leicester City will do battle this weekend in what is quite simply a massive game.

Sunderland have the home advantage and need to make it count, as they look to try and put even more distance between themselves and the bottom three in the division.

Sunderland have several players who can be match winners for Dick Advocaat and three points could move the club up two places in the table if other results go their way.

Leicester’s form in recent weeks has been very good and they have given themselves a chance of staying up that few would have predicted when they were rooted to the bottom of the table.

The Foxes are a point ahead of the Black Cats in the table and have the advantage in terms of goal difference, which gives them a bit more protection heading into the final weekend of the season.

Nigel Pearson will stress to his side that a win puts them onto 40 points, which should be more than enough to keep the club in the top flight before a restructure over the summer.
