Man Utd defender Smalling can feel confidence returning

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling was delighted to start in their draw at Shakhtar Donetsk.

Smalling played at centre-half alongside skipper Nemanja Vidic.

"It was a confidence boost for me to get picked," he admitted. "I want to be involved as much as I can now. Hopefully, I can show the manager I can do a job and he can count on me. He wants players out there he can trust."
