Phil Jones hopes Manchester United have now turned a corner in their difficult season after beating West Brom 3 – 0 – only their fifth win in 13 games in 2014, Sky
United have had a difficult season under new boss David Moyes and travelled to The Hawthorns on the back of a much criticised performance which saw them lose 2 – 0 to Olympiakos in Greece.
However the response from Moyes’ players was positive, and goals from Jones, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck helped the Red Devils get their form back on track with a positive performance to reflect the result.
The champions face old rivals Liverpool next before welcoming Olympiakos to Manchester attempting to overcome the two goal deficit and reach the quarter finals of the Champions League, and Jones realises the importance of every game from now until the end of the season.
“Every game is massive for us now. It’s got to be the mentality now for the rest of the season, there’s no two ways about it,” Jones said.
“Hopefully we’ve turned the corner but it’s game by game for now. The fans expect us to win every week and so do we, so it’s been difficult.
“I think the players and the staff have been surprised by how difficult this season has been. But when you pick up results like this it’s nice.”
