Six games out from glory. That is the position in which Leicester find themselves as they try to defend a seven point lead at the top of the table this weekend.
They head up to Wearside to take on Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Sunday, and with second placed Spurs not playing till later in the day, the Foxes could open up a ten point lead before Tottenham get to kick a ball in anger this weekend.
Sunderland have to dig in and scrap for all they are worth now as they are perilously close to playing Championship football next season. They have seen Norwich pull four points clear of them, so that is the gap which the Black Cats have to try and make up to have a shot at safety this season. Big ask for a side who have won only one of their last ten Premier League outings.
