Jones took the initial touch of the ball, but than struggled to gain composure over his body. He managed to hold on surprisingly long, but than comically fell to the ground, without putting the ball out of play.
Still, Southampton’s player was adjudged to have fouled Jones, and United got the ball.
United won the match, to get only the second place in the league, as City demolished Crystal Palace.
It was still an important victory for United, which will be remembered for Phil Jones hilarious clearance.
