Picture: Manchester United defender named in Champions League Team of the Week

Manchester United kick-started their Champions League campaign with a solid come-from-behind victory at home to Wolfsburg yesterday, with all the teams in our group now sitting on three points with four games to play.

One of the key members of the squad during that victory was Chris Smalling, who had an outstanding match to continue the fantastic start to the season.

Not only did he do his defensive duties extremely well, he scored the winner after a sublime flick from Juan Mata midway through the second half.

Its great to see just how much Chris Smalling has developed over the last twelve months, and he really has turned into one of the best defenders the country has to offer. He looks solid, doesn’t give the attackers an inch of space, wins the ball in the air and also distributes it very well.
