I think it's quite clear Ranieri will get underway with a resounding victory in his first fixture back in the Prem and put fear into Jose and co.
6-0 Leicester.

I agree with Saltire, these teams have a strong chance of both going down.

BTW does Larsson usually start for Sunderland? Got him in my fantasy team, don't know whether he should be in there or not.

Our player of the year last season so should start most games but we trying to strengthen midfield so might drop down the order.

This is nailed on to be the last game on MOTD tomorrow night.

Wouldn't be at all surprised if both sides finished in the bottom three come May.

Leicester 1-1 Sunderland

Hmm, Ranieri starting with what looks on paper to be a 4-4-2 :hb:
Schlupp though appears to be playing wide left like a wingback while De Laet is in the natural rightback position.

Free-flowing Leicester is it, or is it just as usual Sunderland are piss poor? :D

We're carrying on where we left off with a pressing high energy, and Sunderland are allowing us to run with the ball from the mid too much. But after the first 5 minutes it's looked like the same way we played last season.
Maybe I was being a bit too conservative with my prediction.

Vardy should have made it 4 then, good stop but straight at Pantillimon.

Mahrez is absolutely taking the piss out of Sunderland.

Been all Leicester but a good little ball through to Defoe sees him make it 3-1.

Albrighton restores the gap. 4-1. Sunderland can't live with the pace of the game.

Pantillimon handles the ball about 4 miles outside his box and, erm, nothing doing? Nice reffing.

Fletcher scores 4-2. Still can't see how the ref didn't do anything about the handball. It's like he felt sorry for him or something.

Not worried at all, our season doesn't start properly until March.

Dyche off the top of my head and Pearson isn't a bad shout. We are after another couple of players and I think big Dick knows what needs to be done so I'm not panicking yet.
