Keown impressed by Man Utd defender Smalling in Munich

Arsenal hero Martin Keown praised Chris Smalling's performance for Manchester United in defeat at Champions League opponents Bayern Munich.

Keown wrote in the Daily Mail: "I was very impressed with Chris Smalling, there now looks to be a future for him at centre-half; which is a positive from an England point of view. It was a big call by David Moyes to play Smalling in place of Rio Ferdinand but it worked.

"He looked dominant in the air - and beat Thomas Muller to a commanding header early on - and also coped well in one-on-ones with Franck Ribery when dragged to the wing. He was mobile and used the ball well."
