Manchester United defender Phil Jones will see a specialist after injuring his shoulder against Hull City on Tuesday.

Jones was replaced by outgoing Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic just 22 minutes into his side's 3-1 win over the Tigers.

The 22-year-old centre-back will be sweating on the prognosis of his injury he receives later today as he is desperate to be included in England's World Cup squad.

Jones collided with Hull's Maynor Figueroa after throwing himself at the ball during the early stages of Manchester United's penultimate fixture of the Premier League campaign.

The former Blackburn Rovers defender, who started at centre-back in interim boss Ryan Giggs' last home game in temporary change of the Premier League champions, will need to undergo an X-ray in order for Manchester United's club doctors to determine how long Jones will be sidelined for.

Giggs revealed after the game that Jones was taken to hospital immediately after leaving the Old Trafford pitch but did not want to speculate on how long he would be out for.

Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson will want a player of Jones' versatility in his armoury for the World Cup in Brazil as the Manchester United man is capable of playing at centre-back, right-back and in midfield.
