Manchester United defender Phil Jones admits they need Newcastle United to do them a favour against Manchester City tomorrow.

If City fail to win on Tyneside, United can return to the top with a result against Swansea City.

"They were terrific that night," said Jones of Newcastle's win at Chelsea.

"They pressed us really well and we didn't get going.

"But I have said all along, Newcastle are a terrific team with some fantastic individuals.

"Cisse's two goals the other night were incredible, so let's hope they can do us a favour."
