Smalling wants improved defensive performances from 'careless' Man Utd

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling is after clean sheets even though they continue to win in the Premier League.

United have notched up five victories on the trot but have only kept one clean sheet in that time and following the 3-1 home win over Sunderland on Saturday, Smalling feels some carelessness has crept in at Old Trafford.

"There was a bit of carelessness from us [in the second half]," he told MUTV.

"We were disappointed with the goal we conceded because we wanted to get a clean sheet. We have to make sure it doesn't cost us next time.

"Getting a clean sheet means to a lot to us as defenders but also because our record recently hasn't included a lot of them."
