Phil Jones suffers suspected hamstring injury on international duty with England

by Sam Peoples

Phil Jones had to be substituted in England’s 2-0 victory over Switzerland last night with a suspected hamstring injury which puts his involvement in Manchester United’s game against QPR this weekend in doubt.

After over-stretching for the ball, Jones pulled up holding his hamstring and after trying to run it off, he was forced to withdraw from the game.

At this stage, there is no confirmation on the extent of Jones’ injury and the 22-year-old will undergo a scan today to check the severity of his injury.

United’s first-team squad has been absolutely savaged by injuries already this year and if Jones is now unavailable for selection, it would be typical for him given how well he has played so far this season.

Phil Jones has completed more interceptions (17) than any player in the Premier League season.

In his preferred centre-back position, Jones has been one of United’s better players so it would be a cruel blow to his progress if injury put an end to that.

Jones has suffered a long list of injuries in his short time as a United player which has stopped him from really fulfilling his potential, so hopefully his withdrawal against Switzerland was nothing more than a precaution.
