Manchester United fans stunned by Smalling display vs Watford

Loads of Manchester United fans have been reacting to Saturday’s win at Watford, and they’re delighted with the performance of Chris Smalling.

The Red Devils were supposedly on the verge of crisis just a few weeks ago, but Jose Mourinho’s side have now picked up six points from two tricky away ties.

The win at Burnley was far from convincing, but the defence was immense at Vicarage Road on Saturday evening, particularly Smalling.

Romelu Lukaku glanced the visitors in front after an inviting cross from Ashley Young, and Smalling finished a wonderful corner routine like a seasoned striker just a few minutes later.

The towering English international has taken loads of flak over the last couple of seasons, but his defensive play was just as good as his incredible goal, winning seven aerial duels and making nine clearances.

The 28 year-old will be difficult to budge from the first eleven now, so it looks like Mourinho was right to keep faith with the Englishman.
