[Video] Phil Jones’ ankle injury against Reading left the Man United defender on crutches

In real time it looked innocuous.

Manchester United are set to examine Phil Jones’ ankle on Tuesday after the defender jarred his joints in a heavy tackle with Jobi McAnuff on Monday night.

Jones hobbled In the first half of United 2-1 win over the Royals, and the Red Devil was later seen leaving Old Trafford with his foot in a protective boot and on crutches.

Should Jones’ injury prove to be as bad as feared, the defender will almost certainly be out of United’s next two league matches against QPR (a) and Norwich (h), while his participation in the Champions League match with Real Madrid on March 5th could also be in doubt.
