United won’t give up on title dream – Jones

MANCHESTER, England, May 4 – Manchester United defender Phil Jones is refusing to concede defeat in the Premier League title race heading into the penultimate round of fixtures this weekend.

United’s hopes of a record 20th title were taken out of their hands on Monday after they crashed to a 1-0 defeat at Manchester City that saw their neighbours move to the top of the table on goal difference.

The defeat means United are now dependent on City dropping points in their remaining two games against Newcastle and Queens Park Rangers.

However Jones is adamant that United, who were eight points clear with four games to go last month, will chase City all the way to the finish line.

“There have obviously been a lot of questions raised and rightly so,” Jones said. “We didn’t play to our best on Monday, which was disappointing.

“But make no mistake about it, we are still there.

“We are on level points with them. Only goal difference separates us at the moment and we have seen already this season there have been so many twists and turns. Don’t be surprised if you see a few more.”
