Video: Phil Jones as Superman protects Man Utd’s defence against Derby

Phil Jones doing Phil Jones things.

The Manchester United man found himself back in the starting line-up for tonight’s League Cup encounter with Derby County.

At half-time, the scoreline is in United’s favour thanks to an early opener from Juan Mata.

The goal saw some quality link-up play from Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard following a quick attack down the left flank by Antony Martial, who has performed superbly thus far.

In a more light-hearted view of the game, Jones provided a moment of laughter as he covered ground to prevent Derby from launching a dangerous attack.

The centre-half sprung into mid-air in an attempt to pull off some sort of Superman esque act.

It’s not the first time he’s made an overly dramatic move to protect United’s goal.
