Phil Jones Believes Manchester United Didn’t ‘Show Up’ For Defeat Vs Newcastle

Phil Jones has insisted that Manchester United “were not at the races” in Sunday’s shock 1-0 loss away at Newcastle United.
Manchester United were punished by Matt Ritchie’s only goal of the game 25 minutes from time, leaving them 16 points behind league leaders Manchester City.
United defender Jones, who returned to the side after being dropped against Huddersfield Town last time out, admits that the mood is low in the dressing room following a second defeat in three top-flight outings.
“We didn’t show up today, we started slow,” he told Sky Sports News. “They pressed us, the crowd were on their feet. We got control midway through the first half and should have scored but we weren’t at the races, we weren’t good enough, simple as.
“For whatever reason we weren’t good enough. Ultimately we have conceded a sloppy goal. The lads are devastated in the dressing room.”
