Watch Phil Jones wildly celebrating Rooney’s winning goal with United fans at Anfield

By Stephen Barry

The injured Manchester United and Arsenal players had very different experiences of watching their teammates play today.

While United’s injured stars chose to hang out in the away section at Anfield, Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil stayed in the comfort of his own home to watch the goalless draw at the Britannia Stadium.

However the images of United fans with their injured heroes proved far more entertaining, especially when it came to Phil Jones’s goal celebration.

We just hope Jones’s ankle injury survived without any further setbacks!

Jones himself tweeted his delight at celebrating in the stands, as did Michael Carrick.

They weren’t the only two in the stands, with Marcus Rojo also captured celebrating Wayne Rooney’s late winner.
