Jones recreates Smalling's own goal for Man United at Wembley
Manchester United fans wincing at the sight of Phil Jones' Wembley own goal vs. Tottenham on Wednesday could be forgiven for experiencing a sense of deja vu.
That's because Jones' gaffe, which gave Spurs a 2-0 lead, was eerily similar to one committed by his teammate Chris Smalling in a 2016 FA Cup semifinal against Everton.
