Jones boost for United


Manchester United have been handed an injury boost after scans revealed Phil Jones did not suffer a broken cheekbone during Wednesday's 5-0 win at Fulham.

Jones was forced to leave the field after 20 minutes when he clashed with Clint Dempsey and manager Sir Alex Ferguson revealed afterwards he feared the young England international faced a spell on the sidelines.

But after scans revealed no break on Thursday, Ferguson revealed Jones is set to feature in the Boxing Day clash against Wigan at Old Trafford. "Phil Jones should be okay for Monday," Ferguson said. "We feared the worst but there is no break."
