WHEN I looked at the title run-in Sunderland away stood out as one of Leicester’s toughest tests.
Sam Allardyce’s side need the points just as much as the title contenders and he’s the kind of boss who could stall the Claudio Ranieri-driven juggernaut.
Allardyce will park a couple of coaches in a bid to frustrate the Foxes but won’t he first to try it and fail.
Leicester have won five of their last six 1-0 and there’s no reason so suggest they’ll breach a defence that’s more solid than Jordan Spieth’s putting.
Sunderland have drawn four in a row their battle to beat the drop but I can see another 1-0 Leicester win.
If this had been Chelsea visiting the Stadium of Light a year ago they’d have been no bigger than 1-2. But Leicester are odds against at a best 6-5 with McBookie.
Leicester are first up tomorrow and can ease 10 points clear of Spurs before they meet Man United. That would pile the pressure on the White Hart Lane men but I’m backing them at 1-1 with Paddy Power against a side once again blowing more cold than hot.
Spurs were unlucky to lose 1-0 at Old Trafford on the opening day and have a poor record at home to United with four draws and two defeats in the last six.
That’s a worry but this is the best Spurs side for years and with Harry Kane leading the line they can do some damage. Take Kane to net at 13-10 with Winner.
Sunderland v Leicester under 2.5 goals
