Smalling hopes for festive cheer

Chris Smalling is determined Manchester United should make the most of the packed Christmas programme.

United head to Fulham on Wednesday night looking to maintain the pressure on Premier League leaders Manchester City. After overhauling their neighbours for four hours on Sunday, the Red Devils could seize the advantage on New Year's Eve should they continue winning ways as Roberto Mancini's men are not in action until the first day of 2012.

"The players always look forward to this time of year because there are plenty of games," said Smalling.
