Smalling

Manchester
United and england international defender
Chris Smalling is
ready for a strong second half of the
season as his side prepare for
the first leg of League Cup semi-
final against Hull City on Tuesday night
A toe injury in October kept the
England defender out of action for
12 games at the end of last year
and Smalling is now focused on
putting a difficult spell behind him.
Smalling said, I think the more games I get the better,”
he told the reporters.

“I am always one that would rather play
than train. We are looking forward to it and
obviously the last eight or nine weeks we
have been getting that consistency.”

Smalling , who only made his second
start since Oct. 23 against Reading last
weekend, insisted that he needed time on
the sidelines to recover from his injury and
that he has full support of manager Jose
Mourinho.

“I think it’s nice when the manager wants
you out there to play. I try to push myself to
the limit all the time and in the end it just
needed the rest,” Smalling added.
United, who are sixth in the Premier
League, are on a 14-game unbeaten run in
all competitions and have progressed to
round of 32 in the Europa League as well as
the fourth-round of the FA Cup.

Following the midweek’s cup game, United
host second-placed Liverpool in a league
clash on Sunday
