PICTURE: Ex-Arsenal star picks England team - Henderson replaced by United ace

Three Lions close

Former Arsenal star Ray Parlour has picked Manchester United's Phil Jones to replace the injured Liverpool man Jordan Henderson for England's match tonight.

Former Arsenal star Ray Parlour has selected his England team for tonight's match against Switzerland in the Three Lions first Euro 2016 qualifier. 

Roy Hodgson's men face a tough trip to Switzerland, where they will be hoping to put in a performance that brings a increasing disillusioned fan-base back on side. 

England have put in a series of mediocre performances which have left supporters of the nation questioning whether Hodgson is the right man for the job, but Parlour seemingly feels that attack is the best form of defence. 

The Sky Sports pundit has picked an offensive looking outfit, with new Gunners man Danny Welbeck leading the line. 

It is also noticeable that he is placed Manchester United's Phil Jones in defensive midfield, to replace Liverpool's Jordan Henderson.

Henderson is a big loss for the Three Lions, following his injury, but Parlour seemingly feels that the United youngster can offer some similar qualities. 

Jones has failed to establish a natural position at club or international level since breaking through and it appears that Parlour would like to see Hodgson continue to take advantage of Jones' versatility.
