We challenge Matt Le Tissier to pick his best XI from Tottenham and Manchester United ahead of their crucial Super Sunday clash. Custom Seattle Mariners Jerseys . Spurs will be desperate to maintain the pressure on leaders Leicester and put a dent in Uniteds top-four hopes in the process when the two sides meet at White Hart Lane, live on Sky Sports 1 HD at 4pm.With Mauricio Pochettinos second-placed side heading into the clash nine points clear of their visitors, albeit having played a game more than United, Le Tiss has unsurprisingly gone with a Spurs majority. Le Tiss predicts... Find out what Le Tiss is tipping up at 20/1 for Tottenham v Man Utd here. Heres a look at his XI... GOALKEEPER: David de Gea - Both sides have top-quality goalkeepers but for me De Gea is the best in the league. Theyd be nowhere near the top four if hed joined Real Madrid in the summer.RIGHT-BACK: Kyle Walker - Spurs full-backs could well both be playing for England this summer and Walkers pace will be important against Anthony Martial.CENTRE-BACK: Chris Smalling - Im going with him ahead of Jan Vertonghen. I must admit I wasnt sure he had it in him but hes one of the most improved players in the Premier League this season.CENTRE-BACK: Toby Alderweireld - Hes quite possibly been the best defender in the Premier League this season and I was very disappointed when Southampton failed to sign him permanently. Toby Alderweireld: Among the Premier Leagues best defenders? LEFT-BACK: Danny Rose - Hes probably edged ahead of Ryan Bertrand in the England pecking order now and he goes into my team, as much because of the threat he offers going forward as his defensive work.CENTRAL-MIDFIELD: Eric Dier - The lad has made this position his own for club and country and youve got to hand it to Pochettino for spotting he had the right attributes for the role.CENTRAL-MIDFIELD: Mousa Dembele - Hes a very underrated player and tends to go under the radar but he controls games with his power and quality on the ball. Anthony Martial is Man Utds top scorer with eight goals ATTACKING-MIDFIELD: Anthony Martial - It has been difficult for him starting in a central role and scoring goals then being moved out of position. Its taken him a while to adapt to that position but hes clearly an exciting player.ATTACKING-MIDFIELD: Dele Alli - Hes one of the most exciting young players in the world right now and looks an absolute banker to be starting for England at the Euros.ATTACKING-MIDFIELD: Christian Eriksen - It was Eriksen and Harry Kane carrying Spurs last season and his contributions have perhaps been overlooked a bit because of the emergence of others, but hes still a very important player, with 11 assists and six goals this season. Harry Kane can develop into a world-class striker, says Le Tiss STRIKER: Harry Kane - Hes another one that has cemented his starting berth for England and its now up for him to prove on a European stage, both for club and country, that he is a world class striker. For me theres no reason why he cant do that. Sky Sports Fantasy Six-a-Side Find out who Le Tiss and Charlie are picking in their Fantasy Six-a-Side teams here.

The grandson of South Africas first black president, Zondwa Mandela, and Robinsons widow, Rachel, helped unveil a plaque commemorating Mandelas 1990 speech at the old Yankee Stadium. It hangs next to the tribute to Jackie Robinson in Monument Park beyond centre field at the current ballpark. Robinson broke the colour barrier in the major leagues in 1947 with the Brooklyn Dodgers. The ceremony was pushed back a day to Wednesday because the game between New York and the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday -- Jackie Robinson Day around baseball -- was postponed by rain. The plaque features a portrait of Mandela and a dedication. "Able to fill the shoes of our grandfather. That is not why we are here. Its simply symbolic to the fact that we all make up a piece of his magnificent work. I and family, just like all of you who are here, are just a custodian of his legacy," Zondwa Mandela said before the ceremony. "The efforts of the Robinson family, the efforts of our grandfather, should continue to give us a sense that the efforts of today are not supposed to reflect on our experience today," he continued, "but rather that they are for the lives to follow, the generations to come." Yankee captain Derek Jeter presented the Mandela family and Rachel Robinson with a replica of the plaque at home plate prior to the game. It reads: "Nelson Mandela 1918-2013. Noobel Peace Prize winner and global leader whose timeless efforts dismantled apartheid in South Africa. Mariners Jerseys 2019. As President of his country, he would use South Africas enthusiasm for sports as a unifying force for reconciliation. On June 21, 1990, he made a memorable visit to the original Yankee Stadium and proclaimed, "You know who I am. I am a Yankee." "In words and deeds, he became an inspirational leader to the world. Dedicated by New York Yankees, April 15, 2014. Presented to Mandela family from New York Yankees." More than a dozen notable figures, including members of the Mandela and Robinson family, South African government representatives, past and present politicians and labour leaders, Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner, and singer and activist Harry Belafonte attended a pregame news conference. Several of those attending were present at the Mandela speech nearly 24 years ago and recalled Mandelas charisma that day. "I knew that he had something in mind when he walked on the stage and was going to be presented to America and all the cameras and the world focused on him," Belafonte said. "And he walked out in a Yankee jacket and a Yankee cap, and his first words were: You all know who I am. I am a Yankee. All of America went crazy." "The other hero, the other great hero, Jackie Robinson, (is) being celebrated at the same time," Belafonte added. "So were getting a double whammy. Jackie Robinson and Nelson Mandela being celebrated on the same day is to me a great moment." ' ' '
