Smalling (knock) is starting Saturday against Watford.

Smalling picked up the knock while on international duty, but manager Louis van Gaal said Friday that his centerback should be fine, and he'll slot right back into the starting XI alongside Daley Blind.

Smalling said Friday that he is fit for Saturday's match against Watford after picking up a knock over the international break.

Smalling heads into the weekend as the league-leader in clean sheets, and he's got a great opportunity to extend it against a Watford side that has scored just 11 goals in 12 matches this season.

Smalling had six interceptions and three clearances during Saturday's 2-0 win over West Brom, his league-leading eighth clean sheet of the season.

Manchester United have been in excellent defensive form of late, as they've shut out Everton, Manchester City, Crystal Palace and West Brom in their last four league matches. Smalling may not contribute much on the offensive end, but he's been a very steady presence in the back line and should be a solid fantasy option against Watford after the international break.

Wayne Rooney has said that Smalling is one of the top-three central defenders in the world, according to the Daily Mail.

Smalling has improved his form under manager Louis van Gaal, and was even suggested to be a future captain by the manager. Rooney's praise follows that of Van Gaal as Smalling has established himself at the center of Manchester United's defense.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal said that Smalling would one day become the captain of the team after Michael Carrick and Wayne Rooney retire, reports Sky Sports.

Smalling was given a new contract with the club in April, and has been a regular in Van Gaal's defensive lineups. The manager said he would push the defender as he builds him to be the captain.

Smalling picked up an assist in a 3-0 win over Everton on Saturday.

This was Smalling's first offensive contribution of the season this year, as he has just one shot in nine games. With that said, this was his fifth clean sheet of the season and that alone makes him valuable for most fantasy formats. Man U will need another strong game out of Smalling when they take on rivals Manchester City next Sunday.

Smalling converted a Juan Mata flick from within the six-yard box Wednesday night to complete Manchester United's comeback win against Wolfsburg in the Champions League.

Mata delivered a well-placed aerial flick into Smalling's path, who pushed it past the goalkeeper to score the second of Manchester United's goals Tuesday night.

Smalling signed a new three-year contract with Manchester United that will tie him to the club until 2019, reports the Daily Mail.

Smalling has turned his season around after some early struggles under new manager Louis van Gaal. The defender has been regularly named as a starter in the team, and was rewarded for that effort. His old contract wasn't due to expire until the end of next season.
