Jones: Manchester United not thinking about top four

Manchester United defender Phil Jones has revealed that he and his teammates are trying not to think too much about finishing in the top four this season.

The Old Trafford outfit currently sit in sixth position after a disastrous start to the season under previous boss Jose Mourinho, although they have won all four of their Premier League fixtures since former striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over as caretaker manager.

Manchester United currently are six points behind fourth-placed Chelsea before the biggest test of Solskjaer’s reign next weekend against third place Spurs, but England international Jones has admitted his side are simply taking it game by game at the moment.

“Of course we should be in the Champions League next season and that is the aim but we have done nothing yet,” Jones told Sky Sports.

“I know it is a cliché but it has to be game by game.

“I don’t really want to think about the top four, or the Champions League or the FA Cup. It has to be game by game.

“Tottenham is tough and we aim to see where we are after that.”
