Leicester City v Sunderland match preview, prediction and betting tips. Resurgent Foxes to make Moyes miserable.

Match Preview – 19:45 Kick-Off at the King Power Stadium, Leicester

Leicester City’s 2-0 win against Stoke City on Saturday made it 4 league victories on the trot for the defending Premier League champions. The Foxes seem to have reignited last season’s spark and any worries over relegation have been firmly quashed. After a season of relative struggles, Jamie Vardy has hit some form again, netting 4 times in his last 4 league games.

Sunderland look nailed on to be relegated. With 1 win in 13 games in all competitions, they have never even threatened to put together a late skin-saving run. In truth, they have looked relegation certainties all season and now the inevitable mathematical confirmation is just weeks away. They have gone 5 games without even scoring a goal.

In the reverse fixture between the two, Sunderland beat Leicester 2-1 - 1 of only 5 league wins in their entire campaign. The prolific veteran Jermain Defoe snatched the winning goal that day and Sunderland will be looking to the England striker for inspiration once again on Tuesday.

Leicester City v Sunderland Predictions

With Sunderland’s players having already thrown in the towel, Leicester City should have no problems extending their Premier League winning streak. If Leicester start in their typical fast-paced pressurised style, Sunderland will be powerless to resist. Poor ability and low confidence is a lethal mix and Sunderland’s players have both.

Leicester City’s odds of 4/7 to win the game outright are probably worth avoiding, the value just isn’t there. Sunderland’s odds of 5/1 aren’t worth a punt either. Jamie Vardy’s return to form is worth thinking about and William Hill’s odds of 21/20 for him to score anytime are useful. Leicester City to win and under 2.5 goals at 13/5, also with William Hill are also worth considering.
