Phil Jones was a notable absentee from the Manchester United travelling squad which flew to Feyenoord on Wednesday.
The United defender had been earmarked for a return to action in the Europa League but Jose Mourinho confirmed during the build-up to the match that Jones had suffered a lateral collateral ligament [LCL] injury in training which would keep him out for around a month. This setback represents the latest in a long line of injuries for the former England international, who has played just 45 competitive minutes in 2016. On-going ankle problems, interspersed with the odd knee injury have resulted in 28 injuries during his five years at the club with days missed totalling an eye watering 694 [and counting]. With Mourinho expected to dip into the market again for a defender, Jones’ days at Old Trafford appear to be numbered as he slips further down the pecking order. Sep 15 - 5:47 AM
