Pic: Phil Jones showing the battle scars from the win over Arsenal

Phil Jones was today showing a nasty looking battle scar from Sunday’s win over Arsenal at Old Trafford.

While many expected it to be a tough encounter between the two rivals, on international duty today the former Blackburn man was showing just physical it was after his clash of heads with Wojciech Szczesny at Old Trafford. Though to be fair it was partly of his own doing.

It looks nasty enough, but Jones probably isn't a million miles away from his next bruising challenge and is rearing to go for England's games with Chile and Germany.

His own team-mate Wayne Rooney can vouch for the fact that Jones is no stranger to putting himself about, so he is either courageous and committed, or reckless and possibly headless, depending on your viewpoint.
