Chris Smalling believes Manchester United's Premier League revival is being inspired by the rediscovery of the resilience that was the hallmark of their golden era under Alex Ferguson.

Things did improve for the visitors in the second half significantly, partly due to the additions of Ander Herrera and Marcus Rashford from the bench, with the latter atoning for an earlier miss and score what proved to be the victor.

Former manager Ferguson was renowned for nurturing the club's young talent, and it was a former trainee in Marcus Rashford who scored the victor at the Vitality Stadium, having proven so central to this latest recovery.

Asked if such comebacks reminded him of playing for the Scot, who signed Smalling from Fulham in 2010, he said: "Yes, we're showing that attitude, never giving in". No matter how many minutes to the end of the game, we have the feeling that anything can happen.

"These are different players who in the decisive moment always come up with a goal or a great pass".

"I love the song "attack, attack, attack", but when you lose the ball you have to have stability, and we did not have it against a good team".
