Leaders Leicester close in title with win at Sunderland


Premier League leaders Leicester City moved even closer to the title by winning 2-0 at relegation-threatened Sunderland on Sunday.

England international Jamie Vardy put them ahead in the 66th minute and he added his second — and 21st of the season — in added time.

That left them 10 points head of second-placed Tottenham Hotspur, who have a game in hand.

With five games left, Claudio Ranieri’s unfashionable side need a maximum of nine more points to become English champions for the first time.

Sunderland remain in the bottom three, four points behind Norwich City, who they play next Saturday.
