Jones to miss Cardiff and Leverkusen clashes

Phil Jones is set to miss Manchester United’s matches against Cardiff City and Bayer Leverkusen after picking up an adductor injury on international duty with England, the Mail Online understands.

The 21 year old lasted just 57 minutes of the Three Lions’ 2-0 defeat to Chile on Friday evening due to the groin problem, and was replaced by club teammate Chris Smalling, who is likely to start for Roy Hodgson’s men against Germany this evening.

Meanwhile, out of favour midfielder Anderson is being lined up for a January loan move to Fulham, according to the Express.

The Brazil international, who has started just two games in all competitions for the champions this season, would be reunited with former United assistant Rene Meulensteen, who himself arrived at Craven Cottage as first team coach last week.

Elsewhere, the Mirror have reported that no less than five Premier League teams are interested in signing Wilfried Zaha on loan.

Newcastle United, Aston Villa, Swansea City, West Bromwich Albion and Cardiff City are the latest batch of sides to be linked with a move for the England international, who is yet to make an impression on the first team under manager David Moyes.
