Jones: Don’t blame fatigue

The Red Devils missed a number of good opportunities to take all three points at White Hart Lane where the match remained goalless.

But the 22-year-old chose not to criticise the congested schedule of the festive period that sees most teams playing four games in 10 days ??? including a third round FA Cup tie this weekend.

Jones told MUTV: “Fatigue is always going to kick in with two games in three days but it’s the same for every club in the Premier League.

“You have to do it, we have done it, and now we look forward to the game against Stoke on Thursday.

???We created numerous chances in the first half and perhaps should have been three or four nil up at half-time but it wasn’t to be.

“In the second half they came out and pushed us to the end. We knew that would happen but we stayed resilient and we kept a clean sheet.

“It’s always nice to come away with a clean sheet but ultimately the lads are disappointed not to have taken all three points.

???I thought Falcao and Robin were terrific. They held the ball up well, they linked up well but it just wasn’t our day in front of goal.”
