Phil Jones returning to United

Old Trafford, Manchester

Reports from the Manchester United camp say that Phil Jones is back in training this week, but will not be ready in time for tomorrow’s match versus Fulham.

Sir Alex has said that Robin van Persie will be starting up front while Patrice Evra could line up alongside Nemanja Vidic at center back.

He has also said that Alexander Buttner will most likely start on the bench. “It’s pretty much the same as Monday night injury-wise. Alex will be involved tomorrow because he gives that back-up. Evra could actually play centre-back. He has done in the past. But I don’t think Alex will start tomorrow, I think he’ll be on the bench.”
