Jones to miss Everton

Manchester United will be without Phil Jones when the Reds welcome Everton to Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

The 20-year-old collected his fifth domestic booking of the season in United's 2-2 draw against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday and will now serve an automatic one-game ban.

Jones, who has featured in each of the side's last seven home games, was cautioned by referee Mike Dean for a foul on Mousa Dembele with 10 minutes of the match remaining at White Hart Lane.

Two other United players – Wayne Rooney and Antonio Valencia – are currently one booking away from also receiving an automatic ban. Any player who accumulates five domestic bookings before 31 December will be forced to miss a competitive fixture.
