Vine: Chris Smalling aiming for hat-trick after Danny Ings stuns Old Trafford
Chris Smalling was in goal scoring form at Old Trafford tonight with a flying header from Burnley's Danny Ings sandwiched in between the defender's brace.
It appeared to be the perfect start at old Trafford tonight for Manchester United but Ings clearly didn't read the script.
After his unusual press conference during the week, manager Louis van Gaal was hoping his team would get back to winning ways to continue their Champions league push.
Chris Smalling put the home side ahead after just six minutes with a header from a corner, but the in-demand Ings proved why he is catching the eye of the big boys in the top-flight.
Once again the United defence didn't cover itself in glory and the striker flung himself at a cross from Kieran Trippier and the diving header flew past David de Gea in the United goal.

On the stroke of half-time Smalling popped up for his second header of the game to restore the lead.
