  • We asked Soccer Saturday pundit Charlie Nicholas to pick his best combined XI from Manchester Uniteds and Leicester Citys squads ahead of their potential title decider on Super Sunday. Bob Griese Womens Jersey . The Foxes can wrap up the most unlikely of title triumphs with a victory at Old Trafford, live on Sky Sports 1HD, while United will be looking to boost their top-four hopes.Sundays showdown is also the selected as Sky Sports Fantasy Six-a-Side fixture, with £10,000 up for grabs to the highest scoring entrant of the free-to-play game. Heres who Charlie rates as the best XI for the crucial clash…GOALKEEPER - David de Gea David De Gea is at a different level to Kasper Schmeichel, says Charlie Kasper Schmeichel has been absolutely fantastic and his father must be tremendously proud. All successful teams have a top goalkeeper and hes proven to be just that.However, De Gea is just at a different level. I remember playing with Pat Jennings, who I called god, he just had everything as one of the first goalkeepers to save with his legs.DEFENCE - Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Wes Morgan, Robert Huth, Christian Fuchs Wes Morgans partnership with Robert Huth has been crucial for Leicester Danny Simpson has done well and is vastly improved but hes edged out by my one United defender. Ive gone for Fosu-Mensah, who every time I see him I wonder how he hasnt been in the team all season. This kid is going to be a superstar.The United defence has been pretty solid and Daley Blind has done better than we expected while Chris Smalling has had an okay season. However, Morgan and Huth know how to do their job so well and theyre also a threat from set-pieces.At left-back Ive gone for Fuchs. Hes a calm and cool defender who keeps everything simple and is a very efficient. Every time I see him I wonder how he hasnt been in the team all season. This kid is going to be a superstar. Charlie Nicholas on Timothy Fosu-Mensah MIDFIELD - Danny Drinkwater, NGolo Kante, Michael CarrickThis midfield obviously doesnt have many goals in it but it provides the platform for the front three to deliver.Danny Drinkwater and NGolo Kante have been fantastic as a pair, with Drinkwater spraying passes all over the park while Kante charges around. Kante isnt a holding midfielder for me. Everyone compares him to Claude Makelele but hes a better player and he passes forward whenever possible.Ive always been a big Michael Carrick fan and Id have him holding and letting the other two do their work.FORWARDS - Riyad Mahrez, Jamie Vardy, Anthony Martial Anthony Martial has pace, power and is a decent finisher Mahrez is probably the first name on my team sheet. Who would be competing against him? Jesse Lingard? Juan Mata? Mata is a great little player but I dont think Uniteds style suits him.Then Vardy goes in as my central striker. Marcus Rashford hasnt been in the team long enough but he does look like a potential superstar.Martial completes my line-up. He has scored big goals and looks a great signing. Hes got pace, power and is a decent finisher.Think you can pick a better eam than Charlie? Pick your Fantasy Six-a-Side team for Manchester United v Leicester City here.

The Senators return from a lengthy layoff caused by Wednesdays attack on Parliament Hill to host the New Jersey Devils on Saturday night.MESA, Ariz. -- Michael Phelps has competed in the second event of his comeback and failed to advance to the 50-meter freestyle final. The 18-time Olympic gold medallist used Fridays preliminaries at the Arena Grand Prix to fine-tune his butterfly stroke instead of doing freestyle like everyone else in his heat. He finished seventh in a time of 24.06 seconds, missing out on the eight-man evening final. Phelps finished 42nd overaall, shutting him out of any of the three consolation finals, which involve the top 32 qualifiers. Josh Rosen Jersey. Competing for the first time since retiring after the 2012 London Olympics, Phelps finished second in the 100 butterfly on Thursday, tying the fourth-fastest time in the world this year. He wont compete on Saturday, the meets final day. Phelps will head to high-altitude training in Colorado next month. ' ' '
