Galatasaray away is never an easy trip to make, but has backed his side to give a good account of themselves when they visit the Turk Telekom Arena.

With already booking their place in the next round of the Champions League, opted to take a side to Turkey, whilst the team’s big name stars remained at home.

This means a likely return for Phil whilst youngsters like may well find themselves thrown into the thick of it against a hostile Turkish crowd.

But has faith in his side and feels they will do themselves justice:

“It’s a big day for Phil Jones.

“He’s been out all season but has done enough training to make sure his fitness is okay.

“They’ve all been different types of injuries and because he is young, he’s still to develop physically.

“He’s only 20 years of age so there’s plenty of time for him.

“Most of them will have experience of big games and big crowds.

“Obviously for it’s completely different – he’s played in front of 76,000 as a substitute but this will be his first European away game.

“It will be a big day for him but he has the temperament, which is important.”
