  1. Post update

    Sunderland 0-1 Leicester

    A Leicester fan motions to his team that they have one more minute to hold out.

    Nearly right.

    Max Downton: Do the Sunderland players not realise they're fighting to stay in the league?

  3. GREAT SAVE!

    Sunderland 0-1 Leicester

    Leicester should be winning this by knockout rather than on points.

    Daniel Amartey side-foots weakly at Vito Mannone when clean through.

  4. Post update

    Sunderland 0-1 Leicester

    Leicester are hogging the ball and suffocating the life out of this game.

    Another clinical 1-0 raid?

    Ngolo Kante
  5. INJURY TIME

    Sunderland 0-1 Leicester

    Five minutes of injury time to add.

  6. Post update

    Sunderland 0-1 Leicester

    Jamie Vardy...surely...NO!

    Vito Mannone gets down just in time to get a hand to the striker's poky shot.

    Sunderland are still alive.

  7. Post update

    Sunderland 0-1 Leicester

    Sunderland surely have to get the ball forward more directly.

    Too many sideways passes and wasted seconds.

  8. Post update

    Tottenham v Manchester United (16:15 BST)

    The Tottenham v Manchester United kick-off has been delayed by 15 minutes, which means you can stick with us for all the reaction to Sunderland v Leicester before that gets under way.

    The build-up has already started now if you're a dual-tabber on your computer/phone.

  9. Post update

    Sunderland 0-1 Leicester

    Leicester are heading for the corner flag already.

    Leonardo Ulloa attempts to keep the ball at the furthest point from the Leicester goal, but Younes Kaboul shakes him down and wins a goal-kick.

  10. SUBSTITUTION

    Sunderland 0-1 Leicester

    Daniel Amartey is on for Marc Albrighton, who practically did a lap of honour as he attempted to run down the clock on the way off.

    Sunderland make sure referee Anthony Taylor has stopped his watch and added the seconds.

    Craig Andrew Smith: Yep, that's right, we paid 10mil each for Borini and Rodwell.

  12. Post update

    Sunderland 0-1 Leicester

    Leonardo Ulloa is played in by N'Golo Kante as Leicester break fast and hard.

    But the Leicester substitute attempt to clip a finish over Vito Mannone fails to clear the Sunderland stopper.

    Too cute for his own good.

    Pat Nevin

    Ex-Everton winger at the Stadium of Light for BBC Radio 5 live

    "Jack Rodwell had so much time, he tried to place it but just panicked. It's a terrible, terrible miss. Huge relief for Leicester."

    BBC Newcastle

    Ex-Sunderland defender Gary Bennett at the Stadium of Light

     "He scooped it! Jack Rodwell was so surprised the ball had actually fallen to his feet. Keep it on the floor... Sunderland have got to take chances to get back in the game now."

  15. WHAT A MISS!

    Sunderland 0-1 Leicester

    Jack Rodwell - what a miss!

    The ball breaks to the Sunderland substitute in a pocket of space eight yards from goal and he slides his side-foot finish clear over the top.

    What a let-off for the leaders.

    Jack Rodwell
  16. SUBSTITUTION

    Sunderland 0-1 Leicester

    A substitution in slow-motion.

    Demarai Gray comes on for a trudging Riyad Mahrez.

  17. Post update

    Sunderland 0-1 Leicester

    Jermain Defoe spanks a shot furlongs over the top to relieved cheers from the away fans.

  18. Post update

    Sunderland 0-1 Leicester

    Sunderland are beginning to get some manpower into the box.

    Jermain Defoe turns on a sixpence, but batters his shot straight into a defender.

    Then Jeremain Lens cross almost drops for Patrick van Aanholt at the far post, but the right-back cannot control as the ball comes to him through a crowd scene.
