Chris Smalling is targeting silverware after Manchester United beat his old club Fulham 2-0 to move ten points clear of the Premier League.
The Red Devils won at Old Trafford courtesy of first half goals from Dimitar Berbatov and Antonio Valencia.
The young defender put in a towering performance as the United defence kept another clean sheet, while at the other end Smalling regularly won headers at corners.
The 21-year-old is now looking for positive results against Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final and Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-final next week as the Red Devils aim to repeat their Treble winning performance of 1999.
Smalling told Sky Sports: "We're getting into that crucial stage, I mean next week is a massive week again, so hopefully we can keep training well.
"We've got a lot of people coming back into the squad so there's really a lot of opportunities for the manager to pick players and we've also got to keep working hard and hopefully we will get our just rewards."
The defender, who joined the Red Devils from Fulham at the end of last season, added: "We're fighting on all fronts and we're putting in some great performances, especially first half today.
"So hopefully we'll end up with a few trophies and that will be more than enough for my first season."
