Smalling was substituted at halftime of Thursday's Europa League match against Fenerbahce due to a minor muscular injury, but he may be able to play Sunday against Chelsea, manager Jose Mourinho said on Friday.

Smalling has been a steady starter for Mourinho alongside Eric Bailly, but if he is forced to sit out, Daley Blind could move inside, allowing Luke Shaw to start at left back.

Fantasy Premier League: Sunday-Monday EPL Cheat Sheet

After a fairly muted opening day to the Premier League, a few of the heavy hitters will kick off their campaigns on Sunday and Monday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Smalling won three aerial duels and helped keep a clean sheet in Monday's goalless draw with Liverpool.

The Reds threatened in the second half after a sluggish start to the match, and Smalling's sound positional presence was crucial to his team maintaining the clean sheet. He should be one of the first names on the team sheet for Thursday's Europa League match versus Fenerbache.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Smalling scored a goal in Saturday's 4-1 victory over Leicester City.

Having lost their last two Premier League matches, United turned the armband over to their most-talented defender and he rewarded their faith in spades, scoring his 13th goal in a United shirt across 220 appearances. He's shown a nose for goal throughout his career, but didn't find the back of the net in 35 Premier League appearances last season. United's shaky back line will limit Smalling's number of clean sheets.

Smalling has served his suspension and will be available for Friday's match with Southampton.

Smalling missed United's Premier League opener against Bournemouth through suspension. Although Smalling is available, Eric Bailly and Daley Blind are expected to start at centre-back for United.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Smalling returned to training with the group as normal this week, according to manager Jose Mourinho. Despite that, Smalling is still suspended for United's opening match.

It's unknown what kind of route Mourinho will take with his new back line, but it's hard not to see him giving first preference to Smalling. Once Smalling returns, he'll once again be a top option on the Red Devils as his first match could be a home game against Southampton.

July 29, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Smalling is suspended for Manchester United's Premier League opener against Bournemouth due to the red card he picked up in the FA Cup final back in May, the club confirmed Friday.

Earlier reports indicated that Smalling would be able to serve his suspension during the Community Shield against Leicester City, but apparently that is not the case, forcing manager Jose Mourinho to use a patchwork central defense for the opener. Phil Jones could start in his place, as could Daley Blind, alongside Eric Bailly.

Smalling was taken to the hospital after feeling unwell and falling while on holiday in Bali, reports Sky Sports.

Manchester United confirmed that the defender was feeling the effects of food poisoning and fainted. The club added that the England player was feeling well after the incident. Smalling is expected to report to the club for training later this month.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Smalling and the England back line held Slovakia scoreless in Monday's 0-0 draw, their first of the tournament. Smalling didn't have much to do as England dominated possession, but still won five aerials in the process.

Smalling and Gary Cahill have made easy work of the first three opponents so far in the Euros, but competition will pick up next match in the knockout rounds.
