PICTURE: Phil Jones' classic gurn as he chases down Ribery

The effort on the Manchester United ace's face evident during clash with Bayern.

Manchester United defender Phil Jones has become a cult figure on social media since his United career began, through no intention of his own.

Instead for the bizarre faces he pulls mid-action, often not looking out of place in a cartoon.

Against Bayern he was no different, showing he has 'still got it', as he chased down Frenchman Franck Ribery.

Not that we should allow his unintentional looks to distract from his solid performance against Bayern of course.

Jones handled Franck Ribery, a Ballon d'Or candidate from last year with aplomb, refusing to allow the Frenchman room to dazzle as he usually does with regularity with the German champions.

He performance in an unusual right-back position for him has thrown him into the conversation as a viable contender to start in Munich even if Rafael da Silva recovers from injury.
