Charlie Nicholas' Man Utd v Leicester combined XI: No Wayne Rooney or Paul Pogba
Last Updated: 24/09/16 4:01pm
Charlie Nicholas has picked his best XI from Manchester United and Leicester ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash, live on Sky Sports 1 HD - but there's no room for the world's most expensive player Paul Pogba.
The Sky Sports pundit has also left Wayne Rooney out of his line-up, but opted to include two members of Jose Mourinho's squad who are yet to start a game in the Premier League this season.
Here's Charlie line-up in full and his explanation...
David de Gea is just a fantastic goalkeeper. I do like Kasper Schmeichel and Leicester will be desperate for him to be fit, but De Gea is top class.
At right-back I would have Timothy Fosu-Mensah. I don't know why he's not in the United team. Yes he's got things to learn but he's got pace and power and I thought he would be the sort of player Mourinho would like.

Danny Simpson and Antonio Valencia both have mistakes in them and Mensah has more about him. He reminds me of a young Glen Johnson.
Then at centre-back I'll have one from each side. I've been watching Eric Bailly for two years and I really do think he will become a top defender but he hasn't started that well so I've just gone for Chris Smalling.
Wes Morgan will partner him. He's everything you want from a centre-back. He's a threat from set-pieces as well and once Zlatan Ibrahimovic gets a couple of Morgan hits he'll know he's really in the Premier League.
Christian Fuchs is my choice at left-back. I like Luke Shaw but this lad is so consistent, plus he chipped in with an assist for Leicester's first goal last weekend.
I've always said Michael Carrick is underrated. He's simply as efficient as you can get. His team-mates probably appreciate him far more than the fans do and he should be starting on Saturday.
Then I'd definitely have Danny Drinkwater alongside him and Riyad Mahrez also has to be in there despite a slow start to the season.
I don't know if that was because he got caught up in the transfer stuff in his head. It has to happen to these guys when they're talked about with the big clubs. It's understandable but Claudio Ranieri has just let him get on with it.
Paul Pogba is the obvious big omission but I don't think he's got the awareness of protecting his team. I just see him wanting people to look at him and I think he's got a lot to learn from Mourinho.
I actually feel worse about leaving Marc Albrighton out. He does so many good things and was one of the underrated players from Leicester's title-winning campaign.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic leads my line because he's got such presence. He's like Eric Cantona. Think what you want of him, and sometimes I don't like his peacock attitude, but you've got to admire him.
I think he'd work perfectly in a combination with Jamie Vardy and Marcus Rashford, who would create a lot of space with the ways they stretch defences.
There's no room for Wayne Rooney. He is usually prominent in any team I pick but he's not playing well right now. He needs to clear his head and work out what he's doing. He's lost the yard of pace and he's always attracted to the ball and ends up in positions you don't want him to be.
