It has been five straight wins for City to ensure Tottenham can’t land a punch on them with just a handful of games remaining. Leicester now have home games against West Ham and Swansea, with victories potentially sealing the deal.
Claudio Ranieri cut a delighted figure at the final whistle after a Jamie Vardy brace secured a 2-0 win at the Stadium of Light, with the Italian seeing his team eventually outclass a hard-working Sunderland side who spurned some good chances of their own.
