Whilst Man Utd suffered another defeat on the road, this time against Bournemouth, Chris Smalling made a sensational goal-line clearance for Roma against Napoli this afternoon.
Still contracted to Manchester United, on loan with Roma until the end of the season, the England international has been receiving lots of praise for his performances in Italy.
Smalling denied Napoli a certain goal by making a last-ditch clearance to prevent the ball from crossing the line.
You’d think Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would be keeping an eye on Smalling’s performances — even if he did deem him surplus to requirements following Harry Maguire’s arrival.
