Chris Smalling is pleased that we face Liverpool tonight so that we have the opportunity to redeem ourselves after Sunday’s embarrassing derby performance.

“I think it’s good there’s a big game coming up against Liverpool so we can try to hit back,” he told the official site. “We normally reply with a good result. Sunday’s match was a big disappointment, probably one of the biggest disappointments I have felt and I think that a lot of the players were hurt by that performance. We bounced back from that [losing 0-1 at Anfield] and, although this was an even bigger disappointment, we’ve got a chance to play a couple of games quickly and that’s what we all need. We must do our talking on the pitch, not just say it won’t happen again. It’s a case of showing the fans what we’re all about.”
