Phil Jones admits it's an honour to be compared with Manchester United legend Duncan Edwards.

Jones has adapted so quickly to life at United since his £16.5million summer move from Blackburn Rovers, he has been hailed the new Duncan Edwards - the young genius killed following the 1958 Munich air disaster who is such a revered figure at Old Trafford.

Jones said: "It is fantastic to be mentioned in the same category as a player like that. But I just concentrate on my football.

"When you play for a club like United and for England you are in the limelight all the time.

"You have to be able to deal with that in the right way. I think I do that - I let my football do the talking and hopefully my performances show I am good enough to be in the England side."
