The England international slipped while chasing a ball next to the Frenchman, but managed to crawl along and get his head to the ball and knock it from Giroud’s toes. The 23-year-old was also pulling an epic grimace throughout the whole panicked episode. it isn’t the first time that social media users have jumped on an instance of the centre-back looking funny in a match, with it just being the latest in a long run of examples.

The defensive work from Jones didn’t go unrewarded though, with Ander Herrera opening the scoring for the Red Devils shortly afterwards. The 25-year-old volleyed it in from an Ashley Young cross, and Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is unlikely to to be happy with how the Spaniard was completely unmarked at the back post.

Social media users absolutely loved Jones’s efforts!
