Phil Jones believes that Manchester United can underline the progress they have made under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when they take on Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

The Red Devils head into the game looking to continue their fine form since the Norwegian was appointed as the club’s new manager back in December.

Solskjaer was brought in to replace Jose Mourinho in December after the Red Devils opted to sack the Portuguese coach – and Manchester United have gone on to win all of their games under the interim boss.

However, Sunday’s trip to Wembley to take on Spurs will be viewed as clearly the biggest test for Manchester United under Solskjaer so far.

And Red Devils defender Jones feels that the game could be a good way to really assess how far Manchester United have come under Solskjaer in the last month or so.

Speaking in an interview with MUTV, Jones said: “It is about momentum and we need to keep building that momentum, whoever we play. We are feeling good and we are feeling strong.

“Spurs is a good test. We are in good form and have some momentum going. We have steadied the ship a bit, if you like, and we need to keep going.

“We have not done anything yet, we have not achieved anything but we need to keep it going.

“Possibly, Spurs will be an indicator for us and how far we can go. It is a game we need to win. They are in good form and doing well and we need to have a good week, train well and prepare for a tough game.

“Hopefully, the momentum can carry us on to win that match

“Of course, we should be in the Champions League next season and that is the aim but we have done nothing yet and I know it is a cliche but it has to be game by game.

“I don’t really want to think about the top four, or the Champions League or the FA Cup, it has to be game by game. Tottenham is tough and we have to see where we are after that.”

Manchester United head into the game in sixth place in the Premier League table as they look to try and break back into the top four this term.

The Red Devils are currently six points behind fourth-placed Chelsea FC as they aim to secure Champions League qualification for next season.
