Welcome to our Sunderland vs. Leicester City preview, prediction and head to head analysis of this English Premier League match. Sunderland are in the relegation zone, but have one match in hand over the team above them. A win here could see them just 1 point away from escaping the relegation zone. Leicester are 7points clear at the top of the league. They simply have to keep accumulating the points to win the title. That might sound easier than it actually will be. In previous seasons a lot of teams have come unstuck in these vital closing matches. Will they hold their nerve? Or will they succumb to the pressure?

Leicester have a poor record at this fixture. However that hasn’t stopped them this season and they have won many matches where they had a poor statistical record. However I feel the pressure might start getting to them here, so I am going for a draw, with a Sunderland victory a close second choice.
