Phil Jones has energy to burn.
He is the kind of player who wants to be involved in every phase of the game, whether it be defending his goal or bombing up the pitch for a last-minute winner. During the final few matches of last season, Ferguson allowed the Englishman to roam more freely.
Jones could be seen closer to Antonio Valencia and Robin van Persie, entering the final third with greater regularity. Although he failed to score last season, Jones could be used as a box-to-box midfielder who rampages between the lines.
Michael Carrick rarely enters the attacking third, so if United lose the physicality of Rooney, Jones may be asked to fill in the gaps. He'll certainly be looking to notch up a few goals next season, no matter which position he is asked to play.
Where should David Moyes use Phil Jones next year? Let me know in the comments section and be sure to follow me on Twitter right here:
