Jones: Draw against Stoke was a fair result

Manchester United’s latest game on the road was against Stoke City and they were held to a third consecutive away draw by a well drilled Mark Hughes’ side.

United manager Louis van Gaal recently voiced his frustration with his side’s tendency to drop points on away trips as the Old Trafford club have only managed to win against Arsenal and Southampton away from home.

Jones reflected on United’s recent stalemate and feels that they could soon start performing consistently in away games.

Jones said: “We played well in parts but probably didn’t create as many chances as we would have liked. I think the draw’s a fair result in the end. I think it’s maybe just the final pass, the final ball. But we’ll evaluate everything we’ve done at Stoke and we’ll try to improve.”

“I think we’ve become resilient to play against. We could have been beaten, although I still think it’s two dropped points. Maybe if we’d got all three points at Tottenham, we could have looked upon this as a better result in hindsight.”

“As it is we’ve got another draw but we need to kick on and put in a good performance against Yeovil on Sunday.”
