Phil Jones trolled for own goal after Man Utd suffer Champions League defeat against Valencia

There is no getting beyond what a terrible night it was for Manchester United.

Yeah, we had already booked our place in the Round of 16, but the performance against Valencia won’t fill any fan with optimism.

Several players – including Fred and Andreas Pereira – were handed a start to show their worth. They failed to do so and with a trip to Liverpool scheduled for Sunday, why was that the case?

These squad members should have put in an extra shift to give Jose Mourinho a selection headache ahead of that match, but those two in particular are miles off the pace.

Another player who has been picked out for a terrible mistake is Phil Jones. It was his own goal and lack of communication with defensive partner, Eric Bailly, that saw Valencia double their lead.

Marcus Rashford’s late goal wasn’t enough to force a comeback win, which would have seen United top Group H, therefore, be a stronger position ahead of the last 16 draw on Monday, December 17.

Jones has been getting a bit of stick on Twitter as a result. He had a rough night and was involved in both Valencia goals.
