Manchester United centre-half Chris Smalling heads to the pub after a 3-1 win against Liverpool at Old Trafford on Saturday
Chris Smalling headed to the pub with his girlfriend after Manchester United edged to a 3-1 victory over Liverpool at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.
The England international produced another mature performance alongside Daley Blind as the United centre-halves managed to keep Christian Benteke under wraps.
Blind broke the deadlock and Ander Herrera added a second from the spot before new signing Anthony Martial restored United’s two-goal cushion after Benteke’s overheard kick.
And United defender Smalling headed to his local pub with his page-three model girlfriend Samantha Cooke at a friend’s birthday party after their victory over their bitter rivals.
Smalling’s girlfriend posted the above snap and wrote: “Happy birthday to @jessyrose89 couple celebratory drinks in the pub 🎉🎉”
The 25-year-old defender has been ever-present in Louis van Gaal’s side at the start of the season.
Smalling has partnered Blind at centre-half for the Red Devils as United conceded just three goals in their opening five top-flight games.
The 20-time English champions climbed up to second place in the table after their 3-1 win.
