Sunderland 0 Leicester 2: Jamie Vardy fires Foxes closer to title glory

Leicester also went close with Vardy mis-hitting a volley after fine work by Okazaki and Riyad Mahrez’s goalbound drive cannoning off Kaboul.



Vardy made amends to keep the Foxes well clear of the chasing pack.

For Sunderland, next week’s trip to Norwich now looks do or die.
