Man Utd defender Jones: Baresi comparisons won't go to my head

Manchester United defender Phil Jones says he's not allowing comparisons with past greats to go to his head.

Jones has been likened to Franco Baresi, Fernando Hierro and Duncan Edwards since his arrival from Blackburn Rovers.

"Listen, it is nice being compared to people like that (Duncan Edwards, Franco Baresi) but I have to keep my head down and put in performances I know I am capable of," he said.

"Hopefully, if I keep playing well for Manchester United and we pick up points to get to the top of the table, I can keep getting into the England squad."
