Sunderland head to the King Power Stadium to take on Leicester in a traditional 3pm kick-off, and they will be hoping to make a winning start against a Foxes side boasting a new manager in the form of Claudio Ranieri. In the Black Cats dugout there will be a familiar face with Dick Advocaat returning after a dramatic nine-game spell during the 2014-15 campaign, and he will be aiming to pick up where he left off following a positive pre-season which ended with a 1-0 win over Hannover 96. HEre is the Line-up for both the teams:

Leicester City Line-up: Schmeichel, De Laet, Huth, Morgan, Schlupp, Albrighton, Drinkwater, King, Mahrez, Okazaki, Vardy.

Sunderland Line-up: Pantilimon, Jones, PVA, Kaboul, Coates, Cattermole, Rodwell, Larsson, Johnson, Lens, Defoe.


Leicester City: Schwarzer, Hammond, Kante, Kramaric, Ulloa, Fuchs, Benalouane.
