Manchester United’s doctor, Steve McNally, found a blood clot in Phil Jones’ calf. The central defender is now set to miss 3 weeks due to the injury.
The 23 year old is set to miss 3 Premier League matches which include: the trip to Villa Park next week; Newcastle at Old Trafford and; Swansea away.
In the Champions League, United are scheduled to play both of their qualifying matches against Club Brugge during Jones’ predicted injury spell.
With the blood clot keeping him out for 3 weeks, he may also be unfit for the England squad. England will play San Marino and Switzerland, in European Qualifiers, at the start of next month.

Louis van Gaal has commended doctor McNally on spotting the minor thrombosis in the England defender’s calf. The injury led to Jones not being included in United’s line up against Spurs on Saturday.
In pre-season Jones and Blind were the starting centre backs in every game and so were expected to start the season as United’s main defensive duo. Despite pre-season second string defender, Chris Smalling, out performing Phil when he was on the field, the Blind and Jones still looked the most likely to start at Old Trafford.
In Jones’ absence, Chris Smalling got a chance, and he grabbed it with both hands. Smalling’s man of the match performance was the highlight of the game and, if he can keep consistant, looks set to keep his position even when Jones returns.
