Jones keen to get scoring

Phil Jones has revealed that he is working hard to add goals to his game, as he aims to become the complete player for Manchester United.

The England international, who has scored just twice in 107 career appearances, had two good opportunities to add to that tally in the 1-1 draw with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

The 21 year old was also denied a goal in the Manchester derby, after United’s effort in the 2-1 defeat was credited to City’s Vincent Kompany.

Sir Alex Ferguson has not held back in praising Jones, saying he could potentially be one of United’s greats in the aftermath of the 3-0 victory over Aston Villa last week; a result which wrapped up his 13th Premier League title, and the clubs 20th championship.

Jones has shown his versatility in this season, playing at full back, centre back and as a midfield enforcer, but he is desperate to contribute more at the other end of the pitch, as he explained to the Manchester Evening News:

“I want to add goal scoring to my game. Scoring goals is probably something I need to work on. Hopefully, I can get one before the end of the season”.
