Picture: Manchester United key duo named in Team of the Week for Watford display

Manchester United Football Club secured another precious victory this weekend, with a hard-fought performance against a resilient Watford side eventually resulting in a 2-1 victory. Louis van Gaal’s sides are always build on a stern defence, and that has been epitomised by two men.

Chris Smalling has arguably been the best defender in the Premier League this season, and his efforts have once again been rewarded with a spot in BBC’s Premier League Team of the Week.

His defensive abilities have improved so much over the last twelve months, and he is without doubt one of the key men in the Manchester United squad.

Joining him in the team is David de Gea. You’ve just come to expect greatness from the big Spaniard, and this weekend was no different. He made some outstanding saves to keep Watford at bay. Long may it continue!
