With Rio Ferdinand sidelined with injury, the scene is set for young Chris Smalling to partner Nemanja Vidic at the heart of our defence in the Manchester derby.

Smalling, with a derby appearance in mind, has given a revealing interview to the media about life at Old Trafford and Manchester in general, remarking,

“The more games I play the more I feel like I belong here.”

“I feel good at the moment. I only came here in the summer and I wasn`t at Fulham too long, so I`ve surprised myself how settled I have become.”

“Manchester is quite different to London. It`s a bit more chilled out up here and I only live five minutes from the training ground, so everything is nice and easy.”

“A lot of my family come up quite often too, so on a personal level I feel really at ease.”

“But it is a big step for me. I`m still improving but I`m trying to learn from all those experiences and kick on.”


Here at Vital Manchester United, we`ve no doubt Chris will be up to the task on Saturday.
