Manchester United fans were completely let down by their centre-back Phil Jones after his disappointing display vs Tottenham Hotspurs in the Premier League.
Jose Mourinho‘s men headed into the fixture knowing they need all three points if they wish to have any hope of keeping the pressure on league leaders and fierce rivals Manchester City.
Instead, it was Tottenham who managed to open the scoring within 15 seconds to put to shame the United backline and worry their fans.
Their concerns got worse after Jones managed to turn the ball into his own net despite his team recovering well from the early goal.
Phil’s career at Old Trafford has hardly been perfect and often riddled with injuries but his recent performances suggested he was on the up until he came up against Mauricio Pochettino’s men.

When Phil Jones finally *does* turn into the next Duncan Edwards, it’s going to be one hell of a plot twist.

Phil Jones will surely be looking over his shoulder after his display due to the amount of competition he’s got for the centre-back position.
Axel Tuanzebe is currently out on loan but is expected to be a part of the first team squad next season, particularly since he’s highly rated by the staff.
Daley Blind is also capable of playing in the centre-back position if need be but it’s Bailly and Lindelof that Jones should be concerned with given it was the pair that Jose invested in over the two seasons he’s been at Manchester United for.
