Confirmed: Sunderland v Leicester City line-ups

This is how Sunderland and Leicester City will line up for this afternoon’s Premier League clash at the Stadium of Light…

Sunderland will be looking to make it three wins out of three in the Premier League this afternoon, when they take on Leicester City at home.

The Black Cats will head into the clash at the Stadium of Light on the back of a 2-0 victory over Everton away from home at Goodison Park.

Prior to that win, Sunderland had defeated Southampton 2-1 at home, and they are now in with a good chance of avoiding the drop to the Championship.

Dick Advocaat’s side currently find themselves 16th in the Premier League table with 36 points from 35 matches, just two points above the relegation zone.

Meanwhile, Leicester are a point and a place above Sunderland in 15th place in the league standings and are still in danger of going down.

However, the form that the Foxes are in at the moment suggests that they should be able to retain their Premier League status for next season.

It promises to be an interesting game at the Stadium of Light, and this is how Sunderland and Leicester will line up:

Sunderland XI: Pantilimon, Jones, van Aanholt, O'Shea (c), Coates, Bridcutt, Cattermole, Larsson, Wickham, Graham, Defoe

Subs: Fletcher, Johnson, Reveillere, Giaccherini, Vergini, Buckley, Mannone

Leicester City XI: Schmeichel, Wasilewski, Huth, Morgan, Albrighton, Cambiasso, Mahrez, King, Schlupp, Ulloa, Vardy

Subs: Schwarzer, De Laet, Konchesky, Drinkwater, Hammond, Wood, Kramaric
