Chris Smalling: We’ve showed good character

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling was pleased to secure their 1-0 win over Everton.

Smalling and his colleagues in the backline were made to work hard at times to hold off the Toffees attack, but it was a case of job done for the England international.

Smalling told Sky Sports: “The first half we controlled it, got out wide very well but in the second it got a little bit scrappy but we defended well and showed good character.”

“It’s just a case now of looking at ourselves, winning our games as we can’t rely on others if we don’t get those wins. We go again next week now.”
