Jones: United aren't afraid of anyone

Mourinho's first season in charge was definitely not without its obstacles, though, as the Red Devils often struggled to put overly defensive sides away at Old Trafford, equalling the Premier League record of most draws at home - 10.

United finished six points adrift from fifth-placed Arsenal and were a staggering 24 points behind Premier League champions Chelsea.

Phil Jones is convinced Manchester United are on their way back after this season's double Cup success.

In his final entry for the 2016/17 campaign, he reflects on the UEFA Europa League triumph and the spirit of Manchester and reveals his high hopes for next season.

Although, it's in the cup competitions where United enjoyed most of their best moments of the season.

"I'll never forget the reactions that we've seen all these days everywhere in the city (union, solidarity, respect, and many more values that make Manchester such a special place), and the ability of football to bring people together, to help, to contribute, beyond rivalries and tensions". However, the Old Trafford club will at least have the comfort of knowing that some of their closest rivals will be facing a similarly challenging schedule next year.

In the last couple of seasons, a lack of European football has been a key factor in allowing teams to break into the top four.

Liverpool very almost won the league without having European football in one of those seasons, while Leicester City famously did just that last season and Chelsea in this. "We'll take this experience into next season", he added.

Juan Mata believes without consistency, Manchester United will find it hard to challenge for the EPL.
