Smalling: Man Utd peaking just at right time

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling feels they're coming to their peak just at the right time.

The Reds are undefeated in 15 games in all competitions, 12 points clear in the Barclays Premier League, in a commanding position in the two-legged Champions League tie against Real Madrid and preparing to host Reading at home in the FA Cup fifth round.

"We are peaking at the right time," the defender told "At the start of the season we had a number of players who were struggling. Now we have a nice, full squad and a lot of people to call upon.

"It all seems to be coming together. There's a lot of confidence and the results are showing. We are going for three competitions. That makes it good for the whole squad to play games and to be happy. When things are going well on the pitch we're happy as well.

"The manager has stressed that he expects to go to the end in all three competitions. We're confident we can fight on three fronts."
