Manchester United defender Chris Smalling insists that his team will enter Wednesday's Champions League clash with Juventus full of confidence.

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling has insisted that his team will enter Wednesday's Champions League clash with Juventus full of confidence following Saturday's 2-1 win over Bournemouth.

Marcus Rashford scored deep into stoppage time to hand United all three points in the Premier League clash with the Cherries.

The Red Devils have now won their last two matches since losing 1-0 to Juventus at Old Trafford on October 23, and Smalling has tipped his team to be "more on the front foot" against the Italian champions in Turin.

"I think that it would galvanise us. We know we're going into a very tough week now but we can come out with some good results and it can be seen as a good month," Smalling told reporters.

"It is an especially tough month now and potentially after the international break when we have a lot of home games it's all about making sure we get results and move up that table despite the tough games.

"We can take the second half to Turin and I think we will be more on the front foot and you will see a better performance in the first half. We need to take the second-half performance that we had against them at home and we need to do that from the off and we'll give them a good game and get chances."

United are currently second in Group H on four points, two points ahead of third-placed Valencia.
