FourFourTwo - - UP FRONT -

In my opin­ion, Phil Jones is one of the most un­der­rated de­fend­ers in world foot­ball. Ev­ery­one re­mem­bers him for the faces he’s pulled and that bizarre header he did while flat on his chest against Ar­se­nal. But oth­ers just don’t re­alise that he put his body on the line to clear that ball, while also pro­vid­ing en­ter­tain­ment for fans at the same time. For that, he de­serves a lot more recog­ni­tion for his de­fen­sive work. He gets the job done in any way he can.
