Manchester United fans were delighted with Phil Jones following his impressive performance against Real Madrid on Sunday night.
There were doubts over his career at Old Trafford as many believed the arrival of Victor Lindelof this summer could be the end of the road for him, however, he has been back in brilliant form.
He put in an incredible shift against Real, winning every ball, beating his man and ensuring the Spanish side had a hard time in front of goal as he continuously ran time and time again for each ball.
Here’s what supporters on social media had to say about his performance.

He looked out of breath at every chance and it was clear that he was putting in 110 percent as he hoped to impress Jose Mourinho and keep above Chris Smalling in the pecking order.
Game time is guaranteed with Marcos Rojo currently ruled out, but the Englishman will be hoping to build a name for himself under the Portuguese boss as it’s clear he has it in him, especially when he’s fit and is able to get a run of games in the side, previously being let down by a string of injuries.
