Chris Smalling, keen on contributing to Man Utd's success in 2015.

The Red Devils defender Chris Smalling is glad to be back in first-team action after being side-lined due to injury, and he’s keen on contributing to Manchester United's success in 2015.

The English international came on as a sub in the second-half of United's goalless draw against Tottenham last weekend at White Hart Lane.

However, the 25-year-old told MUTV: "The injury was massively frustrating, but it’s good that I haven’t missed too many games, and hopefully I can get back into the side and begin contributing again.

"You have grumpy days! [when you're injured]. It’s difficult when you see the other players out on the training pitch while you have to stay inside and take it slowly.

"We’ve been unfortunate - you tend to go through phases where you suffer no injuries at all, and then three or four will come along at once.

"We’ve not been able to stem the tide just yet, but hopefully in the New Year we’ll have more players available for some important games."
