United fans react on Twitter to Smalling's performance against Newcastle

Manchester United drew 0-0 with Newcastle United this weekend but what did fans make of Chris Smalling's contribution?

Manchester United may have seen their 100 per cent record end this weekend but they are still yet to concede a goal in the Premier League this season thanks to another fine display from Chris Smalling and co. at the back.

The 25-year-old has developed a fine partnership with Daley Blind, and along with full-backs Luke Shaw and Matteo Darmian, Smalling is part of a United back-line that looks considerably stronger than it did last season.

United fans have been crying out for a new experienced centre-back all summer but could Smalling be the answer?

Certainly the way he has played against Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa and now Newcastle suggests that could be the case, and it is even more surprising considering Phil Jones looked ahead of him in the pecking order prior to his injury on the eve of the new season.

After United’s latest match we took to Twitter to see what fans thought of Smalling’s performance and you can read a selection of what we found below:
