Manchester United defender Phil Jones admits he regrets not slotting home after a dazzling run in the first-half of their victory at Bolton Wanderers.

His weaving first half run led to Wayne Rooney’s second in United’s 5-0 win at the Reebok.

“It would have been a wonder goal," he said. "Wayne asked me in the changing room afterwards why I hadn't pulled it back but I have not scored in the Premier League before.

"I didn't expect to be playing so often quite so quickly but that is football," Jones added. “When you get your chance you have to take it. Hopefully I have shown the manager what I can do.

"I definitely feel I have improved since joining United. How quickly they move the ball is different class.

"Having the opportunity to play with this kind of team-mate is bound to make me better."
