Leicester City will look to continue their excellent form on Tuesday at home to rock bottom Sunderland.
Leicester earned a fourth consecutive league win as they eased past Stoke City on Saturday.
Superb goals from Wilfried Ndidi and Jamie Vardy saw them edge further clear of the relegation zone.
Sunderland are five games without a win or goal as they were beaten 1-0 away at Watford on the same day.
Miguel Britos’ winner was the difference, his first goal for the Hornets since joining last year.
Premier League form: Leicester City W4 D0 L1; Sunderland W0 D1 L4
Premier League top scorers
Leicester City – Jamie Vardy 9 goals
Sunderland – Jermain Defoe 14 goals
Leicester City won both fixtures last term, including an opening day 4-2 success over Sunderland on route to the unlikeliest of title successes.
Sunderland won the meeting between the two teams earlier in the season, with Jermain Defoe unsurprisingly among the scorers.

Wes Morgan’s back issue kept him out of their weekend victory over Stoke City and is unlikely to feature here.
They are likely to field a strong XI here and will rotate the squad on the weekend with one eye on the Champions League.
Sunderland will name a similar side to the one that lost to Watford, with David Moyes having numerous injury issues.
Jack Rodwell started and is likely to feature again as he returns from his own injury problems.
Expected starting XI’s
Leicester City (4-4-2): Schmeichel; Simpson, Huth, Benalouane, Fuchs; Mahrez, Drinkwater, Ndidi, Gray; Vardy, Okazaki
Sunderland (4-3-3): Pickford; Jones, O’Shea, Kone, Oviedo; Ndong, Gibson, Rodwell; Januzaj, Defoe, Borini
