Both team looking for a win in order to guarantee their survival in the Premier League.
A victory could see either side move further away from the drop and the hosts are favourties to win another game after securing victories in their last two outings.
The black cats won their last two games against Southampton and Everton, and Leicester City have a tough task at hand to stop then from ensuring their security in the Premier League.
On the other hand, Leicester are also in a need of a win at the Stadium of light to keep their slim hopes of survival alive.
If Leicester secure maximum point from this game combined with a draw or a defeat for Hull City against Tottenham Hotspur at the White Hart Lane.
Foxes have been amazing in the last couple of months with Chelsea being the only team to hand them a defeat in the Premier League over that course of time.
Sunderland are sweating over the fitness of their captain John O’Shea after the former Manchester United player received a rib injury earlier this month in the game against Southampton.
Jack Rodwell, who has had a mixed season since moving the Stadium of Light this season, is also a major doubt for the game because of his lack of match practice and fitness.
Matty James of the Foxes needs a surgery on his knee before he can kick the ball again and David Nugent is also going to miss the game against the Black Cats due a calf injury.
However, Andy King is available after overcoming his hamstring problem and can be drafter back into the side on Saturday.
Both teams will go for a win, but a draw could turn out to be an apt outcome when the two sides meet at the Stadium of Light.
