Versatile Jones says he is happy to play wherever Fergie asks him to after netting winner against Villa

After scoring the winner against Aston Villa in Manchester United's third consecutive 1-0 away win, Phil Jones insisted he isn't concerned by having to play in a number of different positions for the club. Although he is primarily a central defender, Jones has also been used at right-back and central midfield in his relatively short career thus far.

The England starlet was again deployed in midfield at Villa Park but he doesn't believe it is important to tie himself down to one area of the pitch just yet. "I'm still young, I'm still learning the game and I don't think it really matters about cementing a regular spot down in the side," Jones told ESPN. 

"As long as I am playing and enjoying playing, then that is all that matters. As my career progresses then it might be time to start cementing a regular spot down in a set position but for the time being, I'm just enjoying my time at Man United."
