Manchester United’s multipurpose defender Phil Jones wants to add goals to his already burgeoning list of talents. 

The United defender has been deployed in a number of positions on the field of play owing to his versatility and with his first Premier League winner’s medal already secured, Phil Jones is already looking to improve and feels that scoring goals is the area of his game that requires attention. 

Jones prefers to play as centre back but has been deployed at right back and in centre midfielder by his manager. 

His versatility makes him an invaluable asset for any team to have. United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has already tipped Phil Jones to have a stellar career in football for both club and country. 

Phil Jones so far has not scored a single goal for Manchester United in his two years at the club and he hopes to rectify that soon. 

Jones certainly had a couple of chances to get off the mark for United in the match against Arsenal but was unable to convert them.

Jones told MUTV: "Scoring goals is probably something I need to work on. Hopefully I can get one before the end of the season."

Jones was disappointed to see United draw the game which sees their hopes of breaking Chelsea’s record for the highest points tally in a 38 game season dashed.

Manchester United had already secured the title and it was also debated in some quarters of the media whether Sir Alex would opt to give some of the younger players of the squad a chance to impress at the Emirates Stadium. 

Robin van Persie scored the equaliser for United on his return to his old hunting grounds after Theo Walcott had given Arsenal the lead in the second minute as the two sides had to settle for a draw.

United can now look ahead to the last home game of the season against Swansea where they will be presented with the Premier League trophy.

Jones speaking on United’s success said: "We had the celebrations on Monday night and we were back in the swing of things on Tuesday and Wednesday.

"All week we've been preparing for this game and it was just a big game today and I'm pleased with the point in the end.

"[Winning the league] is obviously something you dream of as a kid. It's going to be an amazing day when we lift the trophy."
