Manchester United defender Phil Jones could come back to action before the finish of the season, with tests on Tuesday recommending the injury to his toe is not as bad as first feared.
Sky Sports News HQ comprehends that further tests are planned at United’s Carrington training ground later this week to diagnose the full extent of his injury.
However, United are confident that the central defender will come back to first team action before the season’s conclusion.
Jones’ toe was damaged in a training-ground tackle with United team-mate Chris Smalling while the pair were away with England last week. The injury kept him out of England’s games against Germany and Lithuania.
Manchester United face nine games in April, beginning with West Brom at Old Trafford on Saturday.
