Phil Jones sees no reason why Manchester United cannot be Premier League champions

Phil Jones  says there is no reason why it won't be  Manchester United lifting the Premier League in May, having just returned from injury for the Red Devils.

Jones returned from injury on Saturday against Sunderland in win

Jones made his first league appearance for Man United this season in a comfortable 3-0 win over Sunderland, replacing Daley Blind at centre-back. The Englishman had been out of action with what he calls "something that was completely out of control". The United medical staff had noticed a blood clot forming in his leg after the pre-season tour of the United States of America.

United are sitting pretty on the top of the table, having leapfrogged local rivals Manchester City on Saturday as they dropped points, thrashed 4-1 by  Tottenham Hotspur.

Jones says United can win the Premier League

Jones says that United "have a great squad" with "loads of talented players" so "there is no reason why we can't win the league."

However, Jones says, "that is a step too far at the moment in terms of short goals" because the squad "are concentrating on the Wolfsburg on Wednesday night now."

United host their first UEFA Champions League game proper, having played in the qualifiers against  Club Brugge, for almost two years having been out of the competition last season.

United just focused on next game, says Jones

Louis van Gaal 's side are just "making sure we get a positive result." Jones says he is "just buzzing to be back now and happy to be back in the fold."

After playing Wolfsburg in the second Champions League group stage game, where they'll need to win to bounce back from a 2-1 defeat to PSV Eindhoven, United will be hoping to continue their good form as they travel to Arsenal.
