Phil Jones scored an own goal to put Valencia two goals in front as Manchester United visited Spain for their final Champions League group stage game of the season.

José Mourinho’s side suffered a 2-1 defeat after Marcus Rashford netted a late consolation goal and will be disappointed not to have topped Group H after a glaring Paul Pogba miss compounded their misery.

Oh dear… This is turning into a bit of a disaster for Man Utd 👀

Hi @ManUtd I'm 6'5, British, and will work for cheap wages – if you could sack Phil Jones and hire me, despite never playing centre half in my life, it'd be a win win please consider my proposition x

Phil Jones is still only 26. We could conceivably have another decade of Phil Jones if he looks after himself. Which is a big caveat, admittedly.
