Jones: We can be champions despite recent defensive problems

Phil Jones believes Manchester United’s hard fought victory over Norwich City on Saturday proves that they are strong enough to be champions for a second consecutive time.

The Canaries made the game difficult for United and created several chances before the Red Devils went ahead and collected the three points to stay top of the table.

Jones admitted to the club’s official website that it was a tough game but United’s resilience shows that they can win the league this season: “It was a difficult game, Norwich came here with a game-plan and stuck to it. It made it difficult for us to break them down but we showed signs of champions today in getting two goals late on. It’s a big win for us.

“It’s been difficult not having a settled back-four all season but all the lads are capable of switching around and it again shows the sign of champions, coming into positions and still proving you’re good enough.”
