​Leicester boss Shakespeare not underestimating struggling Sunderland

Leicester are yet to lose since sacking Claudio Ranieri and boss Craig Shakespeare is looking to continue that run of form.

"We strive to win every game and the next game is Sunderland. Last time was a close game and I expect it to be close tomorrow.

"They're dangerous opposition. Any team with Defoe in it is. We have to be aware of his goal threat and respect our opposition.

"Whether we're playing a team at the bottom or the top, our goal is the same and that's to earn three points.

"The team have grown in stature and confidence in the last few games, and Wilfred Ndidi has benefitted from that. Strikers thrive on confidence. Jamie Vardy scored against Liverpool and he hasn't looked back since.

"Demarai Gray has had to be patient and he took his opportunity really well on Saturday."
