Phil Jones pleased with first leg performance against Real Madrid
reflected on a 'job well done' for Manchester United in Madrid last night, but knows there will be further challenges to come.
The England ace was one of United's best performers on the night, handling Real Madrid dangerman Cristiano Ronaldo during the second half.
And with Jones' Three Lions team-mate Danny Welbeck
getting the all-important away goal to seal a 1-1 draw at the Bernebeu, it's all set up for another classic game at Old Trafford on Tuesday 5 March.
Jones said: "Now we have to repeat the same performance at Old Trafford.
"They are a great team and you know they are going to create something. It is about how many chances you are going to give them.
"I thought we limited them to only a few.
"You have to ride your luck at times but we defended really well all over the pitch."
The former Blackburn Rovers man came in for particular praise after shackling Ronaldo for large spells of the game, aside from his stunning headed equaliser.
And the 20-year-old revealed he was given plenty of time to prepare for his role against the prolific Portuguese.
He added: "I was told a few days ago I would be playing and I knew what I had to do.
"He is the main threat for Madrid. The gaffer told me I had to be wary of Ronaldo and if he made runs inside, I had to follow him.
"Once or twice he escaped, which was a wake-up call because he is so sharp, but overall I thought we dealt with it well."
