Southgate delivers update on Man Utd defender Jones injury


England coach Gareth Southgate says Manchester United defender Phil Jones’ injury isn’t serious.

For the draw with Germany, the defender lasted only 24 minutes before withdrawing with a thigh injury.

Jones was substituted for United against Huddersfield last month with a similar issue.

But England boss Gareth Southgate has confirmed that the problem is not as serious as first thought.

“I thought there were a few shaky moments in the first half,” Southgate said.

“Mainly due to Phil carrying something.

“He seems fine, we’ve checked him out.

“It’s something he’s been carrying but he doesn’t seem to be any worse so that’s fine.

“We’ll see whether Phil stays with us.”
