Smalling eyes clean sheet

United, six points clear of Man City at the top, now head to Swansea on 23 December for the first of four games in 10 days that could have a significant bearing on the title race.

Smalling added: “The Christmas period is crucial because there are games every few days, but we've got a big squad and players coming back who are going to feel fresh.

“We need to put on some good performances and keep things going.”
