Chris Sutton claims Leicester City could produce one of the greatest escapes football has ever seen if they secure Premier League safety ahead of a gripping final day.
The Foxes must beat West Ham and hope Everton and Leeds United drop points to guarantee their stay in the top flight.
In what is set to be a tension-filled Sunday, Dean Smith's side gave themselves a glimmer of hope with their draw against Newcastle on Monday.

And Sutton says the result from St James' Park could turn out to be vital in the battle for survival.
"Sunday is going to be fascinating," said the BBC pundit.
"Leicester's point against Newcastle on Monday could actually be massive. They still need to beat West Ham to have a chance but, if they survive from here, it could turn out to be one of the greatest escapes we've ever seen.
"That result means Everton have to beat Bournemouth to be sure of staying up, but even Leeds still have hope because they are playing a Tottenham side that are just so bad."
Giving his prediction on the game and a 2-1 win against West Ham, Sutton added: "From my last month of predictions, it feels like I have only got about one right - there have been so many strange results. Take Newcastle's 0-0 draw against Leicester on Monday for example. We know how bad the Foxes are defensively and I would have bet my house on Newcastle scoring.
"The amazing thing about Leicester and Leeds is that they both score lots of goals, more than anyone else in the bottom half of the table. Leicester have scored 49, which is as many as Aston Villa, who are seventh.
"But both of them are so poor defensively, which is why they are down there.
"Leicester gambled that they could draw at Newcastle, win this game and stay up. I think the first two parts will go according to plan, but sadly the last bit is out of their hands and victory here might not be enough to save them.
"West Ham may rotate a few players with the Europa Conference League final in mind, but their away form has been poor anyway. They went from the end of August to the start of April without managing a single league success on the road."
But with Sutton tipping Everton to beat Bournemouth, that would consign Leicester to a return to the second tier.
