​Jones insists Man Utd have a long way to go

Manchester United defender Phil Jones insists that the Red Devils have a long way to go this season.

On the back of consecutive 4-0 victories over West Ham and Swansea, United have emerged as early-season favourites for the league title. They currently sit at the top of the league table on goal difference.

He said: "We need to be judged on playing against the big boys, so to speak. No disrespect to the teams we've played, because they are never easy games in the Premier League.

"But people will judge us against the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City.

"It will be interesting, but we've got off to a good start."

"All the players in the squad mingle together. We don't have any cliques. We're a tight-knit squad, we all get on well and I think it shows on the pitch.

"You win, you gain confidence. We took last week's confidence into the Swansea game.

"We're not getting carried away, as we're only two games into the season and we have another tough game against Leicester next week.

"We saw them cause problems in the first game of the season at Arsenal, but hopefully we can get the three points."
