Phil Jones has been named in Wednesday's Carabao Cup team as he continues his recovery from a long-term knee injury. Following a 20-month injury layoff, the Manchester United defender will return to the squad for Wednesday's League Cup encounter against West Ham United, according to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Jones last played for the first team in January 2020, in an FA Cup match against Tranmere Rovers, where he scored.

Ever since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed the news of Phil coming back, fans have taken over the internet, turning it into a 'Phil support platform' by sharing tweets and posts to support and welcome the footballer back into the team.
