The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern were beginning to get quite impressed with Phil Jones…
Though the Englishman has struggled with injuries for much of his career, Jones has impressed this season and has, for the most part, remained injury free – until now.
Unfortunately for Man Utd, the defender has now been forced to withdraw from the England international squad through injury, leaving many of the fans in the Transfer Tavern fearful that he could be set for a spell on the sidelines.

It is a disappointing tale for Jones – whose story of redemption was quickly picking up pace with a succession of good performances.
Whilst the Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are feeling pretty sombre about the news, the fans on Twitter have taken a very different response – with many lamenting the defender for his lack of fitness.
Indeed, it appears as though many fans fear that the injury could spell the return of his fitness troubles long-term, and they have thusly been far from sympathetic…
