Phil Jones is the greatest footballer in the world

And now, finally, we have the proof. Everybody likes to see simple things done well. A sharp pass, a neatly-judged tackle, a shot placed precisely into the corner of the net; these are the basic components of football, and there is a pleasure in seeing them mastered. But sometimes — and there is no shame in this — tBB finds itself craving a bigger fix. That's when we turn away from the competent in search of the harder stuff, when we look beyond Michael Carrick and Antonio Valencia. Beyond even Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. That's when we turn to Phil Jones. Let's break this down...

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says Phil Jones enjoys defending, unlike Manchester City’s John Stones

JOSE MOURINHO has praised Phil Jones — and taken a sly dig at rival Pep Guardiola. The Manchester United manager is amazed by the defender’s comeback from injury after fearing for his career. While Guardiola indulges John Stones with the ball at his feet at neighbours Manchester City, Mourinho reckons Jones is all about out-and-out […]

Phil Jones top of the class with old-school skills, says José Mourinho

The Manchester United defender stepped up exactly when his manager needed him and has since earned his confidenceJosé Mourinho feared the worst when he lost both his central defenders in the middle of last month but misfortune for Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling turned into an opportunity for Phil Jones. In something approaching desperation Mourinho threw a player who had been injured for most of the season and Manchester United have not looked back since.Should Jones start against West Ham on Sunday, and he deserves to, it will be his fourth game in a row, something Mourinho admits he...

Player ratings: Manchester United 4-0 Feyenoord

The good and the very good from United's Europa League romp. Sergio Romero: 7 Had nothing to do for 89 minutes, but made a crucial double save while the game was still at 0-0. The first was routine, but the second, an improvised jab with his right knee while he was reversing at speed, was both excellent and very funny-looking. Antonio Valencia: 6 More subdued than against Arsenal, perhaps because the fullback on the other side was spending more time forward, but solid enough. Phil Jones: 6 It's perhaps a little early to start talk of a Jones renaissance, but he threw himself around with his...

Jose Mourinho rings the changes as Manchester United face Feyenoord

Wayne Rooney and Henrikh Mkhitaryan both start in a must-not-lose fixture. It's a game that Manchester United cannot afford to lose, yet Jose Mourinho is feeling confident enough to make six ch— HENRIKH MKHITARYAN STARTS!!! —anges from Saturday's game against Arsenal. The most concerning comes in goal, where Sergio Romero is preferred to David de Gea. Perhaps the Spaniard needs a rest. Ahead of him, Phil Jones and Antonio Valencia keep their place, and will be joi— HE STARTS!!! MKHITARYAN STARTS!!! —ned by the recalled Daley Blind and Luke Shaw. In midfield, Michael Carrick and Paul...

Player ratings: Manchester United 1-1 Arsenal

The good and the indifferent from Saturday's draw. Some marks out of ten for Saturday's game. David de Gea: 6 One shot on target, one goal conceded. Not a huge amount De Gea could have done, however, since it was a meaty header from fairly close in. Antonio Valencia: 7 Energetic and aggressive throughout the first half, and should have been awarded a penalty. Nice to have him back. Phil Jones: 5 In essence, United went into a game against one of the best attacking sides in the Premier League with their fourth and fifth choice central defenders. As such, only conceding the one goal probably...
