Recent results haven't been good but we've been playing alright, think we might win this 2-1.

Hopefully Sunderland go all out for a win and we can get back to playing our most effective game. I think they have to now, a point here and there isn't really of any use to them. Defoe is a bastard though!

Sunderland need this more than Leicester but I can't see them scoring more than 1 and Leicester will score, so I'll go for 1-1, obviously. Good result for Leicester but not Sunderland.

A draw is definitely not a good result for Leicester. Of all the sides we're left to play Sunderland and Swansea need to be 3 points.

I reckon this will be the beginning of the end of Leicester's fairytale! Big Sam won't let them through...

No way BigSam will start the game attacking, he'll only do that if Leicester manage to break through his wall and score first. Otherwise it's everyone bar Defoe behind the ball.

To be honest, I think Sunderland's revival under Allardyce is fairly trivial. They have become slightly more difficult to beat, but they're still pretty shit. Leicester shouldn't have too much trouble here.

Sunderland really need to win here, I can see either Norwich or Palace pulling away from the relegation zone, therefore Sunderland would have to perform a miracle. Then again, not like they've done that before...

1-1 draw.

This is awful. Can someone light a fire under Mahrez's arse, please.

Mahrez has been off it for a long time now. Even when he was scoring he wasn't playing particularly well. Might be an idea to move him inside.

This is shit. Neither side wants possession so it just ends up with both sides hoofing it aimlessly.

A set piece will probably decide it.

All the handball calls were bullshit for either side but the Yedlin on Okazaki is a pen all day.
This is reminiscent of the Norwich game in the way our play is disjointed. If it's the same result I'll be happy.

The tempo is so slow. One goal will win it, if either team can be arsed.

None of the penalty shouts were penalties, imo. Handball penalty has to be deliberate or the arm in an unnatural position, none were either. Okazaki went down when his touch took the ball too far, not a penalty.

But watching this game you can't help thinking "how on earth are Leicester top of the table? And Danny Drinkwater had an England call-up."

You get booted in the chest wether you have control of the ball or not it's a foul and a penalty.

Borini should bury that. Defoe would have.

Love that sound of the ball nestling in the net while the home crowd are silent.

Drinkwater to Vardy for the title.
