The win, against Tottenham Hotspur, on Saturday, was most welcome.

However, it still leaves Manchester United five points behind Manchester City, in second place in the Premier League, a big gap to close even if there`s still a long way to go in the 2017 / 2018 season.

Following the round of fixtures on Saturday, the good folk who compile the ‘Sky Bet Team of the Day` saw fit to include one Manchester United player in their chosen starting eleven.

The player chosen being Chris Smalling.

For those interested the complete starting eleven chosen for the ‘Team of the Day` for Saturday was:

Hart (West Ham United)
Walker (Manchester City)
Zouma (Stoke City)
Smalling (Manchester United)
Milner (Liverpool)
Kolasinac (Arsenal)
Fernandinho (Manchester City)
Hazard (Chelsea)
Cabaye (Crystal Palace)
Firmino (Liverpool)
Ramsey (Arsenal)

Our congratulations go to Chris Smalling on his selection.
