Leicester face Manchester United on Super Sunday needing just three points to secure a remarkable Premier League title at Old Trafford. Tyrann Mathieu Texans Jersey . Wes Morgan and Robert Huth will anchor the Foxes defence, as they have for the vast majority of the season, and will encounter the youthful forward threat of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.This clash pits speed and attacking flair against defensive nous, strength and experience. Rashford and Martial will be the fastest attacking combination the Leicester defenders have faced this season and both players will look to their pace to gain an advantage on Sunday. The running stats PL 2015/16 Martial Rashford Morgan Huth Top speed 35.4km/h 34.59km/h 34.76km/h 33.75km/h Sprints per 90 mins 47.7 50.9 31.1 27.6 Distance run per 90 mins 9.26km 10.16km 8.78km 9.06km Martials top sprint speed of 35.4km/h is the second-fastest recorded in the Premier League this season behind Leicesters Jamie Vardy, while Rashford isnt too far behind. And with Morgan clocking in as one of the Premier Leagues fastest defenders, Huth may well find himself targeted by Uniteds forwards. Huth and Morgan are not required to sprint or cover as much ground as most players due to Leicesters deep defensive line. Of the 486 outfield players to play in the Premier League this season, only two average less distance run per 90 minutes than Morgan and nine than Huth, while both players also rank in the bottom 25 for sprints.If United can their lure them up the pitch a little more often, they can create extra holes for their speedy attackers to exploit. Anthony Martial has impressed for Manchester United in recent weeks Of course, Martial and Rashford bring far more than sheer pace. Generally cutting in from the left, Martial has quickly forged a reputation as one of the Premier Leagues keenest dribblers, eager to take on an opponent at every turn. Only two players average more dribbles per 90 minutes and, as he develops, his success rate will continue to rise. Most dribbles PL 2015/16 Dribbles attempted per 90 mins Dribbles attempted Successful dribbles per 90 mins Wilfried Zaha 9.9 274 4.6 Jefferson Montero 7.3 97 3.0 Anthony Martial 7.3 191 2.9 Riyad Mahrez 7.1 221 3.6 Ahead of him, Rashford has already shown a ruthless streak in front of goal, scoring seven times in 14 appearances. Impressively, only one player with seven or more goals (Man Citys Kelechi Iheanacho) boasts a better conversion rate than the 18-year-olds 35 per cent this season. Rashfords senior career All comps 2015/16 Mins played Shots on target Goals Rashford 1,090 13 7 Such clinical finishing, aggressive dribbling and speed is a combination to worry any defence, though Huth and Morgan have been imperious for Leicester, frustrating all varieties of attacks this season.While Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and NGolo Kante regularly grab the headlines, much of Leicesters success has been due to the defensive foundation laid by their centre-backs. PL rank - defensive categories (of 532 players) PL 2015/16 Clearances Blocks Aerials win Interceptions Total defensive actions Huth 4th =4th 6th 31st 5th Morgan 8th 3rd =17th 11th 9th Of the 532 players to play in the Premier League season, Huth and Morgan have been two of the busiest defenders, ranking among the top 10 in most defensive categories.Leicester often deliberately draw opponents onto them before springing counter-attacks, placing paramount importance on their defenders resilience, and both centre-backs have led the way all season. Wes Morgan will be aiming to clinch the Premier League title at Old Trafford Huth and Morgan have also needed to hold their nerve far more than their rivals this season. In total, 14 of Leicesters 22 wins (64 per cent) have been by one-goal margins, putting sustained pressure on their defenders to help secure the win.No title rival comes close in this department, with Tottenham and Man City winning six of 19 (32 per cent) games by a one-goal margin, and Arsenal six of 18 (33 per cent). Where has the title been won? Over the years, where has the Premier League title been decided? High defensive stats can often just showcase a busy defence as opposed to exemplary defenders, but when the numbers are tied in with such regular clean sheets, as they are with Leicester, its a clearer indication of effective play. Most clean sheets by centre-back partnerships PL 2015/16 Team Full games at CB together Clean sheets Huth and Morgan Leicester 34 15 Smalling and Blind Man Utd 22 11 Fonte and Van Dijk Southampton 26 9 Alderweireld and Vertonghen Spurs 25 9 No centre-back combination has recorded more clean sheets than the Leicester pair this season and Manchester Uniteds Chris Smalling (16), is the only defender to tally more individually.Huth and Morgan will look to nullify their opponents speed and may well hold an even deeper line than usual, forcing United to challenge their strengths.By making their opponents compete in the air or in a condensed final third, Leicester can slow Uniteds attack and potentially grab a title-winning goal on the break.

HOUSTON -- Kansas City rookie Yordano Ventura entered Tuesday nights game winless in four career starts dating to last season despite posting a 2.53 ERA in those games. On Tuesday night, he pitched seven solid innings and finally got his first victory as the Royals beat the Houston Astros 4-2. "Im just really proud for him because that was like his fifth time hes gone for his first win and hes had an opportunity to win ballgames two or three times and we couldnt hold it for him," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "To finally get that out of the way for him, to get his first major league win was big for all of us tonight." Omar Infante homered and drove in two runs for the Royals. Ventura (1-0), an elite prospect with a 100 mph fastball, allowed four hits and one earned run with seven strikeouts in seven innings -- both career highs. His seven strikeouts were the most by a Kansas City rookie since Will Smith also fanned seven on Sept. 11, 2012. "I feel really good," Ventura said in Spanish through a translator. "I feel that the team supported me and played really good defence and scored a lot of runs for me. It gives me a lot of satisfaction so I can keep working hard to help the team win." Infante had a solo shot in the first inning off Lucas Harrell (0-3) and added an RBI in the third inning as the Royals found some offence after managing just five runs combined as they were swept in a weekend series at Minnesota. Eric Hosmer and Billy Butler had an RBI each for Kansas City and Lorenzo Cain had a pair of hits for his fourth multihit game this season. "We just got a couple of timely hits today and as an offence we need to do a better job of that," Hosmer said. "The way our pitchers have thrown weve got to find a way to produce runs for them and tonight we did a good job of that." Carlos Corporan homered in the fifth inning for the Astros, who have scored two runs or fewer in three of their past four games. Harrell gave up five hits and four runs in five innings and has allowed 14 runs in three starts combined this seasson. Keke Coutee Texans Jersey. "Ive got to get strike one," Harrell said. "Through my first 10 hitters, I threw one first-pitch strike. That cant happen. I need to throw strikes in 1-1 counts, too, because that really killed me tonight." Ventura had retired 12 of the last 13 batters when Corporan launched his homer into the first row of the seats in right field with one out in the fifth inning to cut the lead to 4-2. He got back on track after that and didnt allow another hit until Matt Dominguez singled to start the seventh inning. He walked Jonathan Villar with two outs, but ended the threat and his night when he retired Dexter Fowler after a short coaching visit to the mound. Wade Davis pitched a perfect eighth before Greg Holland struck out the side in the ninth for his fourth save. He has converted 13 straight save opportunities dating to Sept. 7. Infante put Kansas City up early with his solo homer to the Crawford Boxes in left field with one out in the first inning. Fowler hit a leadoff double and reached third on a one-out single by Jason Castro. Fowler scored on an error by Ventura with two outs on a pickoff attempt to first base to tie it at 1-1. Infante grounded into a forceout that scored Cain, who had led off the inning with a single, to make it 2-1 in the third inning. Hosmer followed with an RBI double to push the lead to 3-1. A single by Nori Aoki followed by a pair of walks loaded the bases for Kansas City with one out in the fifth, and Butlers sacrifice fly pushed the lead to 4-1. NOTES: The series continues Wednesday when Kansas Citys Jeremy Guthrie opposes left-hander Dallas Keuchel. ... Houston manager Bo Porter wasnt feeling well Tuesday, but said he was much better than he was a day before when he spent the day in bed fighting off what he called "a bug." ...
