Phil Jones’ injury is a blow for Man Utd

Phil Jones’ injury is a blow for Man Utd

Daily Mail states Man Utd’s defender Phil Jones is a major doubt for Saturday’s clash against QPR due to ankle injury.

The 20-year-old England international has left the field on crutches during Man Utd’s 2-1 FA Cup fifth round win over Reading. Man Utd boss Sir Alex Ferguson revealed Jones has suffered an ankle injury. “We’ll have to assess it in the morning. It’s an ankle injury obviously so I’d imagine he’ll not be ready for Saturday anyway. But we’ll see what he’s like after that.”

Should the medical assessment reveal the injury is serious, Jones could also miss Champions’ League encounter against Real Madrid and FA Cup quarter-final against either Middleborough or Chelsea.
