Phil Jones targets Manchester United run

Manchester United defender Phil Jones believes that his side can push on following a defiant 3-0 victory over strugglers West Brom. 

United went into the game off the back of a 2-0 Champions League defeat to Greek outfit Olympiakos, and Moyes needed a positive reaction from his players. Ultimately goals from Jones, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck secured a well needed victory for the Reds. 

United's first season under David Moyes has been plighted by defeats and controversies, but England defender Jones believes the result at the Hawthorns could be a turning point in the season. 

Every game is massive for us now. It's got to be the mentality now for the rest of the season, there's no two ways about it," Jones said, according to Sky Sports.

"Hopefully we've turned the corner but it's game by game for now. The fans expect us to win every week and so do we, so it's been difficult. I think the players and the staff have been surprised by how difficult this season has been. But when you pick up results like this it's nice," he added. 

Jones was joined by fellow England international Chris Smalling in central-defence on Saturday, and he said he enjoys the partnership the two could strike up.

"It's great. I enjoy playing at centre-half and, thankfully, I got the chance. It was nice to get the win and a clean sheet is a bonus. I enjoy playing with Chris. We haven't played that many times together but the more we play, the better our understanding will be and the better our performances will be."
