Jones performance splits Man Utd supporters

by Richard Laverty

Manchester United defender Phil Jones was a shining light earlier in the season as United struggled to adapt to their new 3-5-2 system.

Amidst chaos, Jones put in solid performances but picked up an injury with England which curtailed his form. It is the nature of Jones’s game that sees him pick up silly and unnecessary injuries and leaves supporters frustrated.

Phil Jones can tackle as well as anyone on his day but somehow tends to end up injuring himself rather than his opponent. Against Newcastle, Jones put in a stellar performance before giving away a clumsy penalty.

The two sides of the defender were summed up in one game and he continues to split and frustrate United supporters.

Penalty aside, it will be a big plus to fans to see Jones back in form, especially given the poor form of Jonny Evans. If Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo return to their good form upon return from injury then United could put out a solid back three should Louis van Gaal still with the current system.

Jones will play against Spurs on Sunday and fans will hope for another solid performance.
