Phil Jones has been ruled out of Manchester United’s clash with Brighton on Saturday.

The centre-back aggravated a thigh injury during the international break with England and was forced off in the first half of the goalless draw against Germany.

Jose Mourinho has revealed that Jones required six pain-killing injections to play in the friendly and has slammed England’s decision to select the defender.

Jones has already missed the 4-1 win over Newcastle United last Saturday and did not take part in training ahead of the 1-0 defeat to Basel in the Champions League on Wednesday.
