United fans were surprised by the display that was put up by England international Chris Smalling during Watford game at the Vicarage Road last night.

The centre-back, who has faced huge criticism from the Red Devils faithful, was awesome throughout the encounter and he crowned his awe-inspiring display with a well-taken goal.

His goal ensured that the Premier League giants picked up the maximum points against Watford who were unbeaten prior to the game.

The club’s supporters couldn’t help but shower praise on the player for his performance as they stormed Twitter to hail the England defender.

Here are some of the best tweets from impressed United fans :

Kenneth Martin(@KennethM1972) was impressed with the team’s overall performance as he tweets ‘This is football, massive three points’. He, however, gave Smalling the Man of the match award.

As for Tejas (@thetejas9) Smalling is the most talented defender in the League so far this season. He believes the player can marshall the backline perfectly for the rest of this season.

Ameeksha @ameeksha, was short and precise in his tweets as he simply wrote ‘Chris Smalling was brilliant’

Should he continue with such performance, Smalling will surely be Mourinho’s most trusted defender for the rest of the campaign.
