Manchester United defender Chris Smalling felt they showed character for their draw at Champions League opponents Shakhtar Donetsk.

After their worst start to a league campaign since 1989, Smalling feels that was important.

"It shows we can really stick together," said the England defender.

"We know a few results have not gone our way.

"But when there are a few doubts, we need to show we have a bit of character and fight.

"Once the disappointment of that equaliser subsides and we get back home, we will see it is a well earned point that will allow us to move on."
