24-Year-Old Defender Manchester United Premier
Smalling has been ruled out of Manchester United's Premier League match against West Ham on Saturday due to a thigh injury, ESPN reports.
Smalling's absence comes as a big blow to United, who will also be without Jonny Evans (ankle). Paddy McNair and Tom Thorpe have been called up from the Under-21 side for depth, as Tyler Blackett is out due to a red-card ban. Smalling suffered the injury in training just days after he returned from a groin problem.
