Phil Jones slammed on Twitter after shocking performance for Manchester United U21s
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.
