Man Utd defender Jones expects action-packed derby

Manchester United defender Phil Jones feels the rivalry with Manchester City is greater than what he experienced as a Blackburn Rovers player against Burnley.

Chorley-born Jones feels that intensity will be surpassed at Old Trafford, as Manchester United entertain City looking for a win that would take them back to the top of the table.

"I played for Blackburn against Burnley and that was pretty hostile, although I would imagine this tops that one," said the 19-year-old.

"The atmosphere doesn't bother me too much. We've been away in the Champions League and played in hostile atmospheres.

"This is obviously going to be massive for both clubs. It means a lot to the fans. Hopefully we can get one over on them and make our supporters happy."
