Phil Jones made his return from injury last night during Manchester United U21's draw with Chelsea, however he might have wished he hadn't.
The England international last played a senior game against Swansea on January 2 but is edging closer to a return to the first-team and was given a run out with the youth team.
The centre-back played 76 minutes in the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford in the Barclays Under-21 Premier League clash.
However, he looked well off the pace.

Despite it being his first match for three months, Manchester United fans were merciless on Twitter...

@FullTimeDEVILS Phil Jones was rubbish again, he has to go. Fosu-Mensah, Varela , Borthwick Jackson deserves to be in the squad before him!— Siongriff420 (@siongriff420) April 4, 2016
Phil Jones was utter rubbish, even keeping his time out in mind that was unacceptable performance. That too at U21 level.— Saurabh MUFC (@Saurabh1999) April 4, 2016
Phil Jones is actually terrible. how is he a England international— George (@aReligiousPanda) April 4, 2016
Jones will be hoping those looking on were more sympathetic, with Louis van Gaal, Ryan Giggs and Sir Bobby Charlton all in attendance.
