Manchester United defender Phil Jones says former club Blackburn Rovers will beat the drop.

Jones is confident the Lancashire club will eventually haul themselves out of trouble.

"I'm still a massive fan and have a lot of friends at the club," Jones told United Review.

"As soon as we come off the pitch I always look to see how Blackburn have got on. I am sure they will kick on and things will improve.

"Unfortunately they are at the bottom of the table but they are a lot better than their league position shows."
