Smalling happy to be back at centre-half for Man Utd

Chris Smalling was happy to be at centre-half for Manchester United's win over Arsenal.

With Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand both injured, his return from a recent bout of tonsillitis has been good for both player and club.

"It's nice to come back into the centre," Smalling said. "I've had a frustrating last month with the illness etc.

"But I'm feeling fit as a fiddle now and hopefully I can have a good run until the end of the season."
