sbo222 Manchester United defender Chris Smalling insists finishing second is the "bare minimum" for his side this season.


Local rivals Manchester City have opened up a 13-point lead at the summit of the Premier League table, with Jose Mourinho among others conceding the title is all but theirs.


Smalling, however, believes it is now crucial for United to finish as the country's second best.


Having never finished lower than third in the Premier League under Sir Alex Ferguson, they have failed to finish higher than fourth since he retired as a champion in 2013 - a side Smalling was part of.


"I think obviously we've been second for quite a while and that needs to be our bare minimum," the United defender said of the Premier League.


"The fact we get to play Liverpool at home as well I think is a big advantage.


"If we can separate ourselves from Chelsea and Liverpool and work our way up then we can do that. sbo222


"But I think that's our (goal) first and foremost."


Beating fellow top-four chasers Chelsea on Sunday saw United reclaim second place which had momentarily been taken by Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool, following their victory over West Ham at Anfield.


United will welcome Klopp's side to Old Trafford on Saturday, March 10, live on Sky Sports, and Smalling believes his side should be boosted by their recent win.


"I think being able to beat a rival, it's almost like a six-pointer because of how close we are," Smalling said of the Chelsea victory.


"The confidence just breeds (confidence) and we're ready for the next one.


"I think considering sort of how close we are in the table, I think it gives them a massive blow and us a lift.


"I think all of us, especially that top five, are probably all going to be there or thereabouts come the end of the season.


"These are huge games and I think the fact we play a lot of our rivals at home is going to be a big factor because of our home form." sbo222

Neil Etheridge commits Cardiff future until 2021 with new deal

 
sbobetsh Neil Etheridge has signed a new contract with Cardiff until 2021.The 28-year-old made an impressive debut campaign at the Cardiff City Stadium featuring in all but one of City's 46 Sky Bet Championship matches, as Neil Warnock's side earned promotion to the Premier League.

Etheridge joined the club from Walsall and quickly established himself as the first choice, making 19 clean sheets to help the Bluebirds finish second in the league and return to the top flight for the first time since the 2013-14 campaign.

"The club has been great to me since I started," sbobetsh Etheridge said. "We had a fantastic year last year and it's been great to continue that and extend my deal."Every game is going to be a great experience - all of them. Of course, you've got Old Trafford, Stamford Bridge… I could go on and on about all of them.

"But I'm looking forward to the first game of the season, then coming back here for a full house against Newcastle. I can't wait."Cardiff have been busy in the transfer window this week bringing in Bobby Reid from Bristol City and goalkeeper Alex Smithies from QPR, while influential forward Junior Hoilett has signed a new three-year deal.

Executive director and CEO Ken Choo said: "We are delighted to see another of our key performers from the 2017/18 campaign commit his future to the club."Neil enjoyed a fantastic first season here at Cardiff City, and I'm sure the supporters are just as pleased as us to see him sign this new deal."We look forward to seeing him continue to grow as a player and giving his all for the Bluebirds." sbobetsh
