Smalling was issued a yellow card while keeping a clean sheet in Sunday's 1-0 victory over Liverpool.

Clean sheets have been hard to come by for United as their back-four have struggled. However, thanks to the magic of David de Gea, Smalling and the rest of the United back line managed to keep it together for their first clean sheet in the Premier League since Dec. 28. Discipline could be a problem as he's now picked up yellow cards in four straight matches, bringing his total up to five in the Premier League.

Chris Smalling: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

December 19, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Smalling (groin) is starting Saturday against Norwich City.

United have allowed just one goal at Old Trafford this season, and Smalling has been a major reason for that impressive form. He'll partner with Phil Jones, leaving Ashley Young and Daley Blind on the wings.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Smalling could be available for Saturday's match versus Norwich City as he continues to recover from a groin injury.

The 26-year-old has not played since suffering the injury in Manchester United's Champions League match versus Wolfsburg on Dec. 8, but he could be back in contention for the start after returning to full training. The Red Devils have been forced to cobble together makeshift back lines for their last several matches, so Smalling's return would provide relief in that regard.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Smalling (groin) has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Bournmouth.

Smalling suffered the injury toward the end of Tuesday's Champions League tie against Wolfsburg, and his absence is another major blow to a United back line that is without Luke Shaw (leg), Matteo Darmian (hamstring), Marcos Rojo (shoulder), Phil Jones (ankle) and Antonio Valencia (foot). Paddy McNair and Daley Blind are expected to be the starting centerbacks Saturday.

Smalling has picked up a groin injury at the end of the CL game with Wolfsburg, according to Express.

LVG confirmed the injury after the game. It is still unclear how serious is the knock since he managed to stay on the pitch till the end of the game. Smalling is part of double-injury blow from the clash with Wolfsburg leaving United's defense on a very thin ice.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

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.
