Jones had a game-high 12 clearances, as well as three interceptions and one tackle during Manchester United's 2-0 win over QPR on Saturday.

Jones got the start with Jonny Evans and Marcos Rojo in a three-man back line, though Evans was taken off less than an hour into the match. Jones continues to be a vital piece of the Man U defense and should continue to start as long as he's fit.
