Phil Jones put in a good shift this afternoon in United’s 3-1 win over Aston Villa. The defender is pleased with the result, particularly following an international break where players have travelled all over the world.
It was a big win especially when you have players coming back from international duty on Thursday and Friday. It was difficult for them and everyone played well and we deserved the win. It’s a nice feeling to be winning and playing well consistently but we’ve got some massive games coming up and next Sunday’s derby is one of them.
The next game on the calendar is City at home and a victory could mean we keep our position ahead of them in the table.
It’s always a great game. Those are the games you want to be playing in as a player and we’ll look forward to that one. We need to make sure we finish in that top four but it’s not going to be easy. We know we have some tough games between now and the end of the season and we need to be ready for them.
