Phil Jones and Chris Smalling have enjoyed better nights, but they haven’t endured much worse.

The England duo were destroyed on Twitter for their level of performance as Manchester United slipped 2-0 behind Tottenham in the Premier League at the break.

The United central defenders were all over the place when Christian Eriksen scored the opening goal in the first minute before Jones nodded home an own goal on 28 minutes after being booked for a late challenge.

United were lucky to be only two behind at the break with Rio Ferdinand claiming the United stoppers had been “bullied” by their England team-mate Harry Kane.

Cue the bedlam on Twitter.
