Sunday sees another mouthwatering Premier League clash come your way in the form of Chelsea vs Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.
Michael Carrick will be in charge of his second game as caretaker manager following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and will hope to pick up another win after beating Villarreal 2-0 in midweek.
Solskjaer was finally given his marching orders following a 4-1 defeat to Watford, leaving the club on the hunt for a full-time replacement.
German Ralf Rangnick is set to come in as interim until the end of the season to whip the club into shape, but is not expected to be appointed until next week.
He will likely be watching on, however, and it looks like he could see a rarely seen United player at Stamford Bridge.
Our sister title the Manchester Evening News reported on Saturday evening that Phil Jones had travelled with the United squad to west London, despite not making an appearance since an FA Cup clash with Tranmere Rovers in January 2020, and could be named in the squad.
Unexpectedly, however, plenty of United fans seemed to support the move from Carrick. Some said he should slot into a back three against Chelsea, with some claiming he is a better option than the suspended Harry Maguire.
@Turriga1 said: “Probably a better bet than Maguire in his current form.”
@Rangnickball said: “A back 5 may be the reasoning as to this: Shaw Jones Bailly Lindelof Awb.”
@ManUtd2345 said: “Start him over Maguire.”
@TakenAsRed99 said: “Never give up on your dreams. He could be on the verge of a second coming, Phil ‘Gegen’ Jones, the poster boy for Rangnickball.”
@UTDGrey11 said: “Better than Maguire in my books.”
@PHJES said: “Great investment renewing his contract. Ole and Woodward masterclass.”
@IroHikem said: “I think he needs to start this game as a proper replacement for Maguire.”
