Evans has probably struggled the most this season and has come under a lot of criticism from fans for some woeful performances, whilst fans believe Jones and Smalling still have time on their sides.
Both have put in world class performances since joining in 2011 and 2010 respectively but equally so they have also shown an immature side which supporters hoped may have gone away with age.
Smalling came in for plenty of criticism after a red card in the Manchester derby whilst Jones’ all round clumsiness and proneness to injuries continues to frustrate supporters.
With that in mind, we asked Man United fans whether they think Evans, Jones and Smalling have a future at the club. Here’s what they had to say:
@PeoplesPerson_ only smalling should be given another chance the rest should make use of the exit door please!

@PeoplesPerson_ based on current form, I would sell Evans yes but I’ve still hope for Jones and Smalling.

@PeoplesPerson_ i’d sell Evans, I think Smalling and Jones still have a part to play

@PeoplesPerson_ Evans without a doubt, shown time & time again he’s not up to it. Smalling & Jones show glimpses but need more consistency

@PeoplesPerson_ Evans – has Hull or Sunderland written all over him. Jones – keep as a squad player. Smalling – Ipswich.

@PeoplesPerson_ Smalling and Evans, time to go. The latter is a complete and utter liability. I’d keep Jones.

@PeoplesPerson_ Sell Evans/Smalling. Jones is quality

@PeoplesPerson_ I would swap them all now for 75pence and a six pack of um bongo.

@PeoplesPerson_ Evans and Smalling, without a doubt. Jones needs to improve lots, or he’ll be next. The other 2 are beyond saving I think..

@PeoplesPerson_ Don’t think any of them are top notch, and they all are injury and accident prone.

@PeoplesPerson_ Evans to go I think. We need a new CB and we have young Blackett and McNair coming through.

At 27, supporters don’t seem to wish to afford Evans any more time given his performances have constantly slipped since his emergence in 2009.
As for Jones and Smalling, whether either player would be any more talented now had it not been for injuries will never be known but the harsh reality is all three could be shipped out by Van Gaal this summer.
