We're relishing PSG clash, says Smalling

Manchester United's blistering form has left them full of confidence and relishing Tuesday's Champions League clash against Paris St Germain, according to defender Chris Smalling.

"We all knew the run of fixtures we have coming up and we are all relishing that," Smalling told United's website after a 3-0 win over Fulham. "We knew today [Saturday] it was about character and if we can get up for PSG and Liverpool, it was about coming here and making sure we got the three points. The mood going into PSG is as good as ever."

United's fine run has coincided with the return to form of midfielder Paul Pogba under Solskjaer, with the World Cup winner scoring twice at Fulham to take his league tally to 11.

"Paul has got everything, hasn't he? And he's showcasing that," Smalling added."A big reason why we are in this form we are in is down to Paul, because he's not just scoring goals, he is assisting goals and he is controlling games as well, so we are very lucky to have a player like him in our team."
