Phil Jones believes the existing Manchester United squad isn’t “far away” from being strong enough to win a Premier League title.

The Red Devils are currently on 61 points and are aiming to secure Champions League football for next season with a top-four finish.

Jones already has his eye on the next campaign, however, and he believes that the Manchester club will be able to win another title sooner rather than later.

When asked if he thinks the Red Devils are good enough to win a Premier League title in the near future, Jones responded: ‘I don’t think we’re far away.

‘I think obviously we had a poor start to the season. It’s sort of like a story of two halves of the season, really.

‘That [challenging for major trophies] is the vision for the players, for the staff, for the fans, everyone involved in this football club.

‘It’s a wonderful place to play football and that’s where we want to get back to. We need to knuckle down.

‘We need to play better than we did [against Watford], but we need to keep improving as a team.

‘We’ve not got long left of the season now but let’s see where we can go. Then we can recover well in the summer and have a good start to next season.’

United’s next Premier League fixture is against Wolves on April 1.
