Jones: Draw was a fair result.

Manchester United defender Phil Jones believes that the draw United got from the Manchester derby was a fair result.

United played a goalless draw against Manchester city in the 170th Manchester derby on Sunday.

“At home, you always want to win games. It was a tough game. On another day, we could have nicked it but I think a draw was a fair result," Jones told

“In the first half, it was okay but, in the second half, we were much better. It was energetic and frantic at times but I thought we took the game to them, especially in that 25-minute spell when they couldn’t get out. That is probably when we should have scored but it wasn’t to be.”

Jones also spoke on Joe Hart's low save from a Smalling shot, and Lingard's effort that struck the bar.

“I thought it was a great save from Joe [Hart]. It would have been nice for him to sneak that one into the bottom corner but it wasn’t to be. It looked like it [Lingard’s effort] was in but that is the luck you need sometimes.

“Maybe it could have hit the bar, it could have come down and there could have been somebody there to tap it in. But I thought he did great when he came on and it would have been a contender for Goal of the Season if it had gone in.”
