Chris Smalling could be fit for Manchester United’s Premier League trip to Watford on Saturday despite picking up a small injury problem late on during England’s 2-0 defeat by Spain on Friday night.

The England defender was replaced by Gary Cahill in the 84th minute of the friendly loss but his undisclosed injury is not thought to be serious.

Meanwhile, Michael Carrick is set for a significant spell on the sidelines after twisting his ankle late on during England’s loss to Spain. England boss Roy Hodgson commented on Carrick’s injury after Friday’s game.

Carrick had started the game but was replaced by Jonjo Shelvey in the 91st minute after he appeared to twist his ankle.

Marouane Fellaini remains sidelined with an undisclosed problem, with the Belgium international pulling out of international duty last week and no return date currently set.
