Jones sees Moyes influence at Manchester United

Despite winning just two of their four games while on tour in Asia, the defender is confident the new manager will have the squad in shape before the new Premier League season
Phil Jones believes that new boss David Moyes' influence is already starting to have an effect on Manchester United.

Moyes' arrival has seen a shake-up in the coaching staff at Old Trafford, while the club are also having to contend with the distractions of the transfer window, as Moyes deals with both the future of wantaway striker Wayne Rooney and a bid for Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas.

However, the 21-year-old England international is confident that they will be able to hit the ground running when the Premier League campaign kicks off in August.

"We've been together four or five weeks now and had some really good training sessions," he said.

"[Moyes] has implemented what he wants us to do in training and games and we can already see things coming off in games.

"Come the start of the season we'll be ready to go and firing. A lot of the lads are excited."

United won their second game under Moyes on their pre-season tour of Asia, with a largely youthful side beating Kitchee FC 5-2 in their final match in Hong Kong on Monday.
