Ole Gunnar Solskjaer drafted centre-back Phil Jones into his Manchester United starting XI on Saturday. The Red Devils’ fine form continued on the day with a 3-0 win over strugglers Fulham at Craven Cottage. 

A Paul Pogba brace and a fine strike from Anthony Martial was enough to earn all three points for the visitors, who remain unbeaten under Solskjaer. The Norwegian coach will also be pleased to have seen his side keep another clean sheet, which Jones played his part in preserving.

On top of that, the 26-year-old also registered an assist for Martial’s goal, and came close to scoring himself when his long-range effort provoked a smart stop from Sergio Rico.
