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.

Jones is working on his fitness to ensure his injuries are behind him and is now focusing on a long run of first-team action, reports Sky Sports.

Jones (shin) started and played all 90 minutes of Manchester United's 3-0 win over Liverpool on Saturday.

Jones missed nearly two months due the ailment, but he was sent back into the starting XI, as Marcos Rojo was sidelined after picking up a knock in training. Jones made it through the match without suffering a setback, and he is likely to start Saturday's match against Aston Villa.

Jones is in contention to face Arsenal on Saturday after rehabbing his shin injury with the club during the international break, the Telegraph reports.

There is no guarantee that Jones will be fit enough to play, and there may not be a reason to rush him back, as Chris Smalling is available after serving a three-match ban and Jonny Evans appears to be near fitness from an ankle injury. Even if he plays, it's a tough fantasy matchup for Jones against an Arsenal side that is tied for fifth in goals this season.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal said Tuesday that Jones (shin) is unlikely to play against Arsenal on Nov. 22 after the international break, The Guardian reports.

Jones has already dealt with a couple of injuries this season and after being out for so long, he doesn't have the fitness to play a full 90 minutes, which van Gaal used as his reason for likely keeping him out. And while van Gaal left open the possibility that Jones could be available off the bench, he's not a significant-enough fantasy producer to start with the hope of production as a sub.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal said Monday he does not know when Jones will be able to return from his shin splints, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Jones has been in-and-out of the lineup due to a variety of injuries this season, but even when he's fit, the United defense has struggled mightily, reducing his relatively low fantasy value even more.

Jones was unable to play in Manchester United's Premier League match against Chelsea on Sunday due to shin splints.

Jones has battled a number of injuries all year, and while he continues to get starts when he's fit, he could begin to miss out to Marcos Rojo and Chris Smalling, who started Sunday and were the seventh centreback combination used by Louis van Gaal this season.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal confirmed Friday that Jones is still not fit following his hamstring injury, and he will not play Sunday against Everton, according to the club's official website

Jones was not named to the England squad for their Euro 2016 qualifiers against San Marino and Estonia, so he will use the upcoming international break to continue his rehab, with the goal of returning Oct. 20 at West Brom.
