Leicester City can win the Premier League by beating Manchester United on Sunday, but Riyad Mahrez does not believe the title race is over just yet. The Foxes enter the final stages of the Premier League as favourites despite starting as 5000/1 outsiders after a miraculous escape from relegation last season.Mahrez insists he and his team-mates are remaining calm as they approach the final three games, insisting they are just enjoying their fairytale moment and are refusing to let pressure ruin their moment. It is not done yet, Mahrez told the Daily Telegraph. We have to keep going and focus on every game because it is difficult. Simpson: Well do it without Vardy Danny Simpson is confident Leicester can overcome the suspension of Jamie Vardy. We dont need to be nervous. This is just a bonus for us. Nobody expected us to be where we are so this is a bonus. If we do it, we do it. If not, thats life, the Algerian, 25, added.Like I said, we are not a big club. We dont have to win the Premier League. Mahrez and Leicester can win the title with victory at Old Trafford on Sunday Despite their doubters, Leicester have been top of the table since late January and have rarely faltered in their charge for the title. They have lost only three games in the league and Mahrez has accredited this to the focus among the squad.I speak a lot with NGolo Kante and maybe January we started to talk about the league. We just said: Imagine if..., he added. Mahrez: The ultimate bargain? Riyad Mahrez is the cheapest PFA Player of the Year since the 1990s. But that was only for about 30 seconds and then we would say: No, lets stay focused and lets see. It was still a long way to go. Maybe 15 games to go.Nowadays, we are like: Its not done yet because Tottenham are very close to us.

This story appears in ESPN The Magazines College Ftball Preview issue. Subscribe today!The link to the new Steve Gleason documentary sat in my email for three days before I opened it. People told me Id love it. The reviews of the film, which won acclaim at Sundance and is now in wider release, are uniformly positive and talk about the spirit of life and hope laced through his journey. That didnt matter much. I didnt want to watch someone die of ALS in front of my eyes. I know Steve and his wife, Michel, a little, spending time with them for a story, and even that brief interaction showed me enough of their struggles to know that there wouldnt be some Hollywd ending.The movie follows five years of Steves life as he goes from a vibrant ftball folk hero for the New Orleans Saints to a man trapped in a wheelchair, unable to speak or move. After seeing his struggle up close - not only the valiant bits that raise awareness, but the awkward fights with his stressed-out wife and his son gently pushing his limp head back into place - I thought I knew what the movie would be about and how it would make me feel.Then I watched Gleason. I was wrong.The film opens with Steve starting to record video journals for his still unborn son, Rivers, that would teach him about love and about taking chances, about being his own person and building a campfire: things a boy needs to learn from his father if he wants to grow into a gd man. Sn the cameras are around Steve all the time, as he gets his diagnosis of ALS and then starts to lose things. We see Michel see him try to swim and struggle, crying at the sight of the strong man she married actually beginning his slide toward nothing. His dad takes him to a faith healer and Steve gets down in his ftball stance, like hes covering a kickoff, with his hand up in the air. He takes four steps and hits the ground hard and sliding, like a big bull thats been shot. In the crowd, Michel fumes at Steves dad for making him do this to himself. Later we see Steve speaking some of his last words before ALS traps him in a silent body, in one of the purest moments of desperation and despair ever recorded on fillm.ddddddddddddThe arc is sophisticated and layered, its central thesis revolving around the things passed down from father to son, moving through generations. We see Steve try to make peace with his own father while attempting to give as much of himself as he can to Rivers. We see Steve and Michel argue. We see Steve struggle with the same things as many healthy people, just in an extreme way: He wants to work on his foundation because it makes him feel gd to be helping, gives him a purpose, while Michel thinks hes not spending enough time with her and with his video journals for Rivers. That conflict drives the second half of the movie.If reality television is the worst of the American impulse to film, and a window into the very worst of what the human animal is capable of being, then this movie and its hours of personal ftage is a window into the best. It is one of the finest documentaries that Ive ever seen, period. Go see it for the first time and just cry and feel empty and like theres no point in even dreaming because life crushes all of us eventually, and then go see it again so that the hope and the victory emerge from all those ashes. Its the visual version of the Dylan Thomas poem.Everyone faces the challenges confronting Steve, only most of us deal with them slowly over seven or eight decades. All of the business of life hit him at once, and in his sped-up horror, there are powerful messages. Im writing this in my kitchen, and my wife is outside drinking coffee on our porch, and thats where I should be, not doing a job but living my life and making sure I understand what matters and what doesnt while I still can. Those are the things youll think in the hours after Gleason ends. Its a movie that seems, in its first scenes, to be about watching up close as a man dies, but it turns out to be the opposite. We watch as Steve Gleason rages against the dying of the light, and when its over, we realize that continuing to fight in the face of certain defeat is at the heart of what it means to live. ' ' '
