While the Foxes’ downturn has proved cause of concern, the hosts have taken no points from their last four matches to slip down the Championship standings.

Interim head coach Mike Dodds has been unable to turn things around since stepping into the dugout, and Sunderland’s latest defeat came at Carrow Road, where they were beaten by fellow playoff contenders Norwich City 1-0.

A recent 2-1 defeat to Swansea City at the Stadium of Light was Sunderland’s seventh home loss in the Championship this season, as many as they suffered throughout all of last term.

The Wearsiders will therefore be keen to give their fans something to cheer about in midweek, and after enduring four straight defeats by single-goal margins, they may be due a change in fortune.

However, not only have the Black Cats slipped off the pace before meeting the Championship leaders, but they have also lost four of their last five league matches against Leicester City.

Now travelling to the Stadium of Light for the first time since December 2016, when they lost 2-1 as reigning Premier League champions, the Foxes have won just one of their last nine league matches on Wearside.

Given recent results, Leicester could be forgiven for fearing a similar outcome on this occasion, as Enzo Maresca’s once-unstoppable side have been beaten three times since the middle of last month.

After losing just one of their first 13 away matches this season – and winning no fewer than 10 – Leicester have lost two of their last four ahead of Tuesday’s contest, and they were surprisingly beaten at home by Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

Leicester had only Ben Nelson’s second-half goal to show for their efforts in a frustrating 2-1 defeat, and after seeming nailed on for an immediate top-flight return, they now hold just a five-point advantage in the automatic promotion race.

Sunderland vs. Leicester City Head to head

In the 72 previous meetings between these two teams, Sunderland have claimed 27 victories while Leicester have won 29, and they have drawn in 16. Leicester have scored 108 goals and conceded 92 in the process.

Sunderland Team News

Corry Evans, Patrick Roberts and Niall Huggins will all be absent for some time to come, while Sunderland’s top scorer Jack Clarke was recently ruled out for up to six weeks by an ankle injury.

Dodds gave Romaine Mundle only his second start on Saturday, while teenager Chris Rigg made a cameo from the bench, and both may be involved in midweek, with Jobe Bellingham and Luis Semedo starting up front.

Leicester City Team News

Leicester midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is still sidelined, and hamstring injuries for Dennis Praet and Ricardo Pereira have also reduced Enzo Maresca’s options.

Patson Daka or Tom Cannon could lead the front line, but veteran striker Jamie Vardy will push for selection, having scored four goals in his last five league matches against Sunderland.
