Phil Jones, who joined the club this summer from Blackburn, has claimed that he has already improved as a player in the short amount of time it’s been since his transfer.

Following injuries at the back, teenage Jones has made his way in to the starting line-up, playing in the centre of defence or at right back.

After picking up two assists in our 5-0 win over Bolton, Jones has reflected on how he has improved.

“I didn’t expect to be playing so often quite so quickly but that is football,” said Jones. “When you get your chance you have to take it. Hopefully I have shown the manager what I can do. I definitely feel I have improved since joining United. How quickly they move the ball is different class. Having the opportunity to play with this kind of team-mate is bound to make me better.”
