Manchester United fans react to Chris Smalling’s performance vs Huddersfield

Manchester United secured their place in the FA Cup quarter-final on Saturday evening, thanks to a 2-0 victory away at Huddersfield Town.

The goals were scored in prolific style by Romelu Lukaku, striking in both halves to put the Red Devils in control of the game.

However, another player who deserves credit aplenty for helping United to a positive result is Chris Smalling. The defender has taken some deserved stick from the fans recently, but he put that behind him to put in a commanding performance at a difficult away ground.

Positionally, he was super, Smalling dealt with the physical Steve Mounie excellently, was in control of the whole back line and when Huddersfield’s onslaught came, he stood up and was counted.

This seems to be a recurring theme with Smalling. He’ll put in a couple of bad performances before following it up with a string of excellent displays, then, it’s just rinse and repeat.

For now, though, we have to give praise to the English centre-back. No doubt he’ll be a shoe-in to start against Sevilla away on Wednesday night, in a game that’ll be another physical and mental battle for him.

As you’d expect, the fans were delighted with his performance:
