Leicester win to increase pressure on Moyes and Sunderland

Leicester win to increase pressure on Moyes and Sunderland

Strikers Islam Slimani and Jamie Vardy scored second-half goals for Leicester, which has won six straight games in all competitions under Craig Shakespeare since he replaced title-winning manager Claudio Ranieri.

David Moyes endured more misery as Sunderland slid closer to relegation from the Premier League after a 2-0 defeat at resurgent Leicester.

It ended a controversial few days for Moyes after footage emerged over the weekend of him telling a BBC reporter she "might get a slap" following a post-match interview last month.

"We've showed in the past five games that everyone is buzzing around the pitch for each other".

'I have been in football for long enough to know anything can happen.

Sunderland manager David Moyes on off-field distractions: "I've been surprised in many ways but I've done my job with the players, prepared them and organised them".

Moyes apologised for what he said to Vicki Sparks and the Black Cats issued a statement to say his comments were "wholly inappropriate".

They were below par in the first half - think Ranieri's side of earlier this season, rather than the Italian's title winners of past year.

Sunderland got their big chance in the 77th minute when Jack Rodwell burst down the left hand side and pulled the ball back into the box where it fell to substitute Victor Anichebe, but the Nigerian could only strike the post before Defoe hit the side netting. I'm not looking too far ahead in terms of where we can finish.

Going into the game on the back of four consecutive league wins, Leicester's verve and flow in the opening stages harked back to their form during last season's title run-in, and Shinji Okazaki nearly put them ahead when he flicked Demarai Gray's cross just wide of Jordan Pickford's goal after three minutes.

He said: "No, I'm still not going to say that".

'I am still not going to say that because other teams are capable of going on good runs, ' he said.

"We have to make sure we're ready for each football match".

Marc Albrighton played a key role in Leicester's win after coming off the bench, with the winger crossing from the left for fellow substitute Slimani to head home in the 69th minute. "I am pleased for everyone at the club with the run we're on".

"I've never felt really comfortable until the final whistle, so no, it doesn't feel easy".

Shakespeare added: 'Sometimes as a manager you make substitutions for positive reasons.
