  1. Post update

    Right, that's it from me.

    For all the reaction to that big win for Sunderland head here.

  2. FULL-TIME

    Sunderland 2-1 Leicester

    All over! Big, big win for Sunderland.

    David Moyes grits his teeth and punches the air.

    Jermain Defoe applauds fans
  3. CLOSE!

    Sunderland 2-1 Leicester

    What a chance! What a save! 

    There's a scramble in the Sunderland area as the ball pinballs around and eventually falls at Wes Morgan's feet. He shoots and Jordan Pickford bats it away. Crucial.

  4. Post update

    Sunderland 2-1 Leicester

    David Moyes rallies is his players from the edge of the technical area.

    Win this and the Black Cats move up to 18th, one point from safety. What a big result it will be.

  5. Post update

    Sunderland 2-1 Leicester

    There's going to be SIX minutes of added time.

  6. Post update

    Sunderland 2-1 Leicester

    Into the final couple of minutes as Victor Anichebe picks up the ball with his back to goal, turns and powers forward, but his shot is weak, much to Leicester's relief.

  7. SUBSTITUTION

    Sunderland 2-1 Leicester

    Duncan Watmore is in pain after colliding with Christian Fuchs. He can't continue so on comes the stretcher. He's replaced by Javier Manquillo.

  8. GOAL - Sunderland 2-1 Leicester

    Shinji Okazaki

    Hang on, this one isn't over yet!

    Leicester pull a goal back as substitute Shinji Okazaki flicks in Demarai Gray's cross.

    Can Sunderland hold their nerve?

    Shinji Okazaki scores
  9. GOAL - Sunderland 2-0 Leicester

    Jermain Defoe

    Game, set and match. 

    Duncan Watmore's shot is blocked but the rebound falls to Jermain Defoe, who drives in for his eighth goal of the season.

  10. Post update

    Sunderland 1-0 Leicester

    Victor Anichebe has been everywhere for Sunderland, causing problems in attack and helping out in defence. He's put in a great shift.

  11. SUBSTITUTION

    Sunderland 1-0 Leicester

    All or nothing for Claudio Ranieri as he uses his final two substitutions, throwing on Ahmed Musa and Demarai Gray for Riyad Mahrez and Marc Albrighton. A bit of pace brought into the mix.

  12. YELLOW CARD

    Sunderland 1-0 Leicester

    Yellow card for Seb Larsson as the referee catches him pulling on Riyad Mahrez's shirt. 

  13. SUBSTITUTION

    Sunderland 1-0 Leicester

    Claudio Ranieri responds to that goal for Sunderland by making a change. On comes Shinji Okazaki for Islam Slimani.

  14. YELLOW CARD

    Sunderland 1-0 Leicester

    Patrick van Aanholt falls to the ground after a challenge.. and he's booked. Referee thinks it was a dive.

  15. GOAL - Sunderland 1-0 Leicester

    Robert Huth OG

    Finally, the breakthrough!

    It's unfortunate for Leicester as a driven corner hits Robert Huth and deflects into the back of the net.

    Jan Kirchhoff and Sebastian Larsson celebrate
  16. Post update

    Sunderland 0-0 Leicester

    Victor Anichebe shoots low from distance, but doesn't get anything behind it and Ron-Robert Zieler has so much time he could bob to the Sunderland canteen and make a brew before the ball reaches him.

  17. Post update

    Sunderland 0-0 Leicester

    Sunderland need to get back to what they were doing for the first 20 minutes of this game. They were excellent. Playing like a side at the bottom of the tabl now unfortunately.

  18. CHANCE!

    Sunderland 0-0 Leicester

    Suddenly, though, Islam Slimani has a chance as a Jamie Vardy lets Marc Albrighton's cross run through to his strike partner, he shoots first time but the effort hits Papy Djilobodji right in front of goal. The Sunderland man didn't know much about it.

  19. Post update

    Sunderland 0-0 Leicester

    Riyad Mahrez has a pop from distance, forcing Jordan Pickford to punch his powerful strike clear.

  20. Post update

    Sunderland 0-0 Leicester

    Seb Larsson is making his first Premier League appearance of the season and is treated to Sunderland fans chanting his name.

    It's Leicester who have started the second half better, although no chances yet.
