Manchester United defender Chris Smalling feels manager David Moyes will continue to back the club's youngsters.

Smalling is convinced that Moyes will continue the long-established strategy of handing younger players their opportunity, which Sir Alex Ferguson was so keen on.

“This manager is the same as the previous manager when it comes to giving young players a chance,” Smalling said.

“He gave them a good chance on tour and they’ve shown what they can do.

“It can be quite daunting when you go away with the first team for a few weeks but they’ve really bedded in.”
