Jones Deserves His Spot

Many fans will be looking to discredit our defenders in the wake of our loss to Swansea on the opening weekend of the 2014/15 Premier League, but there is one man who would be exempt from this criticism. Phil Jones was, in my opinion, our second best player on the pitch on Saturday, behind only our captain fantastic, Wayne Rooney.

Jones made four tackles, intercepted four passes, made one clearance, and hit the target for 88.4% of his 69 passes. Even though Louis Van Gaal’s tactical setup failed and the players around him struggled to adapt to Swansea’s in form attack, Jones managed to put in a fine performance.

Hopefully, we will see Luke Shaw return to fitness soon and perhaps Louis Van Gaal will improve our strength in depth in defence by bringing in a few more players of suitable quality, but one thing is for sure… Phil Jones deserves to retain his starting role in our team.
