Manchester United defender Phil Jones missed Sundays’ draw with Chelsea at Old Trafford after a repetitive strain injury excluded him from the match-day squad – the latest in a long line of problems for the England international.
Post-match Louis van Gaal confirmed the £17 million defender was missing because of shin splints with the Dutch coach unable to give any clear indication of when Phil Jones will return to action. The injury itself is a common footballing overuse injury which responds well to conservative treatment – rest / strengthening / stretching with a gradual increase in load – rehab can range from weeks to months potentially. With Chris Smalling returning to the eleven on Sunday plus Jonny Evans and Paddy McNair approaching full fitness the defensive situation [for the moment at least] doesn’t look too bad.
