Jones: Last day title defeat driving Man Utd this season

Manchester United defender Phil Jones admits last season's title collapse has been driving them on this term.

United surrendered the title to Manchester City on the final day of last season.

Jones told manutd.com "It was a miserable afternoon, as you can imagine, but the manager just told us: 'Always remember this experience and don't let it happen again'. You have to learn from it, even though it hurt at the time. It's a great lesson and a harsh learning curve but all you can do is go out and try and win the next one. That's what the players at this club have always done and that's what we're trying to do this season."
