Manchester United defender Phil Jones has no problem with the busy festive schedule.

Jones may still be a teenager but he is old enough to know it is a traditional part of the English game that is not going to change.

"Everyone has a little bit of a moan about how many games there are around Christmas but the beauty of it is that everyone is in the same position," he said.

"We just have to get on with it.

"It is about how we manage and cope with injuries.

"We have been a bit unfortunate but we are still up there fighting with the best."
