Phil Jones is Manchester United’s new Nemanja Vidic!
Phil Jones continued his resurgence in defence for Manchester United with an excellent display against West Brom on Saturday.
The Baggies have positioned themselves as the “best of the rest” after the top six in the Premier League, but they could not live with Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Saturday.
Zlatan scored at the start of the first half and second half at the Hawthorns with West Brom struggling to reproduce their fine performance against Swansea in midweek.
Jones & Rojo square up to Rondon
After Manchester United had gone 2-0 up, both Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones squared up to West Brom’s main man Salomon Rondon.
Jones came into remonstrate with the Venezuela striker and Rondon slapped Rojo in the face with the England man right there.
Cue Jones remonstrating with referee Anthony Taylor.
Rondon got booked but it didn’t appear that Anthony Taylor saw the second part of the incident at all.
The internet did not take too kindly to Phil Jones trying to grass up Rondon…

Will Gerrard say "the English are meant to be tough" (like he did when Ramsey was punched) about Phil Jones being the biggest grass ever?
