He did ok, no worse than the rest. He puts 100%in but ultimately Smalling is a far far better defender. Who ever decided to keep PJ and let Smalling go is crazy

I thought he was our best player today. Got in a very good tackle in the box too in the first half.

That would be Smalling.

Smalling is soft just like Lindelof and, has no business starting a game against a team like Burnley. Jones did ok and better than most but seriously CAF where is the De Gea performance thread? Too much fan boys?

Surely Ole could have said to him that we don't want you to go, Lindelof is my first choice but you're our most experienced defender and you can get back in the team if you're willing. I might be wrong but I think virtually every other defender was given more pre-season games than Chris, the message seemed pretty clear from Ole.

Back to Jones, he did alright tonight. I'm actually surprised by that.

Had a relatively decent game so nailed on to pick up an injury if he plays the next game.

Probably the only positive from the game, Jones showed what he can still do. Very good performance his first of the league season

Think he was quite good but at the same time he could have done better at both goals.

Very good. My Mom. For what is worth I thought he gave those Burnley twats a taste of their own medicine but the ref had double standards on the issue

So pretty much a standard performance then. Looks good for 89 minutes until he fecks up/gets injured/injures someone else. He looked better than usual because he didnt directly cost us a goal this time, he had help from others.

Excellent personal display from Jones last night. Laughable that anyone is trying to blame him for either goal. Have to stick with this pairing now and hope Jones can stay fit - he is several levels above Lindelöf if he can get a run of matches.

I wouldn’t say laughable however he was not alone at fault for any goals. The first goal came after he clumsily gave away a freekick and Maguire but also Jones should have covered better for Matić in case he did win the header.
The second goal they played their way through him and Maguire so I don’t know who to blame if not him and Maguire. Of course DDG could have better som it’s on him as well.

First half his passing was good but in second half he looked very limited and struggled with the press(not only him).

Overall I think he was ok however. Can’t expect more from a backup who plays a match here and one there without the continuity.

Thought he had a great game and looks like he’s done some serious work at the gym, well done Phil jones.

Goal was more on Maguire who had a bad one but really Burnley made one chance. It’s up front we struggled.

Within 10 minutes he fell face down into the mud, looked like he was covered in shit and got a yellow.

Good performance in a very easy game. City next is the real test for our defenders if he plays. Good goal that should help his confidence.

Imagine getting repeatedly turned inside out by League 1 relegation fodder :lol:
Exactly, if we were against better attack, we would have been punished. He is so obviously not good enough, it is painful to watch. He is probably the worst defendee in our squad.

Good performance? He got skinned multiple times by players who have spent most of their careers in non league football. He was awful.

They created nothing. Was really no troubles for us at all.
They had one counter where Jones missed a tackle and got past him. No dangers apart from that.

He did no injure himself with the clumsy tackle in the first half? Phil Jones is full of surprises these days...

Thought he played well today. Might see more of him if we stick to this back 3 formation. Typical he was covered in mud within 5 mins!

The fact that they managed to make him miss a tackle and get past him is bad enough tbh.

Wouldn't happen to a player who can actually defend.

Watch bloody Liverpool today. They got totally destroyed by a league 1 side and they have the best defense in the PL.
Yes it was without Van Dijk, but shows how pretty much one player hold them together and having a good midfield in front of them leaves them less exposed.
I think people might have crazy expectations for our players. 6-0 with nothing to do for Romero and people are still unhappy with us.

Jones have struggled like he did against City. If he plays this week I would not be confident in him or the rest of our defense.
Still it was a good performance today even if the opponent was poor.
If he plays and get destroyed by City complain about him then and about the rest of our team.

To be fair to him, the opposing player had hold of him, and did the normal thing when challenged by a defender, he fell over, earning a free kick, and Jones a booking, very unfortunate in my eyes.

He wasn't awful, but he got skinned at least once, and I would expect players like him to shine in a match like this, and he didn't.

Solid again today. Definitely should have moved ahead of Lindelof now for a starting place after the last two matches. Top finish for his goal as well. Pleased for him.

It's great when people decide our defence was good while we played against such a side that had 12 shots against us and our keeper was actually busy at times. And we had CBs on the pitch and won 6-0 :lol:

I think some Phil Jones bots will probably never die.

I always cringe when people say a current player is championship level at best but, Jones not even sure that is appropriate. He can be very good defender at times but, he is just a constant calamity in waiting now.

Seems nice enough but, goodness me, United need to do something to move him on.

I'd still rather have Evans over several of our CBs especially Jones.

For all his critics Jones has had 2 solid games back to back. Puts his heart in, id much rather see a player who gives his all as opposed to Martial who looks half arsed disinterested and only tries when he feels up to it

Surely gone at the end of the season this time. If a total madman who hasn't played in nearly a year jumps straight ahead of you in the pecking order then you're done.
