These are Phil Jones header jokes following a bizarre bit of defending that saw the Manchester United defender crawl along the pitch before heading the ball into Olivier Giroud’s legs so it would bounce out for a goal kick during the 1-1 draw with Arsenal on Sunday.
An atypical central defender, Jones came up with an inspired solution to a defensive mishap at Old Trafford but was soon ridiculed for it on Twitter.

You’re all laughing at Phil Jones, but that’s what raw desire looks like. It’s also what a spaniel on a freshly polished floor looks like.
