Fans React Brilliantly As Phil Jones Goes Full Phil Jones Against Newcastle

Phil Jones had a shocking moment for Manchester United against Newcastle United.

The 26-year-old England international was handed a place in the starting XI alongside Victor Lindelöf.

While United fans were already worried about him starting, they were in for a shock of their lives when the defender played through a Newcastle player and almost allowed the Magpies to take the lead.

To Jones’ credit, he backtracked and made amends for his mistake.

As one Twitter user put it: “Phil Jones
just went from Phil Jones to Paolo Maldini in five seconds.”
