"Of course, centre-half is where I see myself playing and hopefully I can get a run of games there, sooner rather than later, but it’s all about playing for Manchester United and that is massive."
Six days after winning at Wembley, Jones helped United record an impressive 4-1 victory over Swansea in David Moyes’ first league outing as United manager, a match that drew the gaze of the football world. As a result, there was an added pressure on the Reds, which made the triumph even sweeter.
"Winning is a habit and those are good habits to have," Phil said. "The lads were pleased after the game but we know it is a long season and there is no need to get carried away after the first game.
"I think there was pressure on us but I don’t think there was any added pressure compared to what we are normally used to. I thought we coped with it well and I thought all of the lads responded to it really well. We put on a good performance."
