Mitchy Batshuayi Taunts Phil Jones After World Class Own-Goal

Is Phil Jones becoming the King of own goals?

The Englishman is again the talk of town after his latest slip up in a Champions League match condemned Manchester United to a defeat against Valencia.

That was his fourth own goal for United for an impressive record of two in the Premier League and two in the Champions League. Regarding goals in the right end, Jones has two in the Premier League and two in the Champions League. So he’s on par.

Anyway, back to Batshuayi. Jones is well-known for his on-pitch gurning and he was on fine form at the Mestalla, much to the amusement of the on-loan Chelsea striker.

It was pointed out on Twitter that Batshuayi was wearing boots with a bat logo on, his own brand as it were, but the striker was more interested in Jones’ latest facial contortion.

Jose Mourinho bemoaned his side’s lack of intensity after the loss with the Portuguese furious of his side’s loss despite scoring two goals.

Carlos Soler opened the scoring in Valencia’s 2-1 win with Phil Jones’ calamitous second-half own goal proving too much for Mourinho’s side.

A late Marcus Rashford strike brought the Red Devils back into the match, but it proved too little, too late for Mourinho and Co.

In spite of the loss, Manchester United move onto the knockout stages in second place behind Juventus, who left the door open for a first-place finish due to a 2-1 loss to Young Boys.

However, Manchester United couldn’t capitalise, much to the frustration of the Portuguese manager.

“We scored two and instead of winning we lost! But, jokes aside, we were too passive in the first half, comfortable but without intensity and ambition in the second,” Mourinho told BT Sport.
