Manchester United defender Chris Smalling should be fit to featuring against Aston Villa in this weekend’s Premier League return, despite having coming off for England due to sickness this week, reports the Express.
Smalling has been a regular in the Manchester United defence when fit this season. The versatile man has been utilised frequently by manager Louis van Gaal, and is showing signs he could well be a mainstay at Old Trafford. He will be a key component this weekend for their meeting against Aston Villa, as the Red Devils have been thin on options in their backline.
The 25-year-old has since recovered from his withdrawal in the England game, and still has a few days to get back to normal, so he should be 100% for Saturday.
