Chris Smalling had the match of his life as he scored twice off the bench replacing an injured Phil Jones and helped Manchester United take care of business against Burnley, 3-1.
United will have some worries in the physio room as both Jones and Daley Blind had to leave the match early due to injury but they got the result they expected and Smalling's head was a major reason. A corner kick was the first play upon his entrance and the ball was headed by Robin van Persie, then headed by Falcao, then headed by Smalling into goal. Then, with moments to go before halftime, Smalling bagged his surprising brace by heading in a nifty Angel Di Maria cross. United would put the game to bed in the second half, when Di Maria was taken down in the area by Scott Arfield, and van Persie convereted the penalty chance. Certainly if Jones is to miss any time, Smalling will figure to see some increased pitch time. Feb 11 - 4:52 PM
