I guess the honeymoon period is over for Chris Smalling!

Since joining United, from Fulham, the versatile defender has enjoyed a somewhat meteoric rise to fame culminating in international recognition.

But, starting his first game for United in ten fixtures, Chris has copped for a bit of flak after being accused of ball watching when City scored the only goal of the game ad according to the tabloid press has, subsequently, felt the full hairdryer treatment from Sir Alex Ferguson.

The boss though, outside of the dressing room, has been a little more diplomatic simply saying about the forty-firth minute goal,

“If you lose a goal at a set piece you only have yourself to blame at this level.”

For Smalling, I guess it is a case of live and learn!
