Phil Jones: Man United worse under David Moyes
Phil Jones says out-of-form Manchester United haven't hit David Moyes low, yet
Phil Jones says Manchester United aren’t playing as poorly as the Red Devils were at their lowest point under David Moyes.
The Red Devils suffered a humiliating 2-1 loss to promoted side Norwich City at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
The 20-time English champions haven’t won any of their last six games in all competitions after their Canaries setback under Louis van Gaal.
The 64-year-old is facing growing speculation over his long-term future at Old Trafford amid reports Jose Mourinho could replace the Dutch coach.
However, England defender Jones is adamant that the current struggles at United aren’t as bad as their slump under Van Gaal’s predecessor, Moyes.
“I wouldn’t say it’s the lowest moment. I think it became pretty glum, if you like, under David Moyes and it was unfortunate. We weren’t playing well at the time,” Jones told Sky Sports.
“There’s no point saying we’ve played some good football this season because ultimately we’ve lost three games in a row – but we have in patches. We need to stick together, there’s nothing else you can do.”
The Red Devils are in fifth place in the Premier League table after Tottenham Hotspur hoisted themselves into the final Champions League spot following a 2-0 win at Southampton on Saturday afternoon.
United travel to Stoke City at Britannia Stadium on 26 December.
