Allardyce kept faith with the XI who drew 0-0 against West Brom, as Sunderland were unchanged for only the second time during his tenure.

However, there was a spot on the bench for Jeremain Lens, who took the place of Ola Toivonen among the substitutes.

Opposite number Claudio Ranieri similarly kept faith with the side who beat Southampton and extended Leicester's lead at the summit to seven points.
