The 19-year-old was selected to play in the heart of United's midfield for yesterday's 1-1 draw at Liverpool, and he has admitted that he was surprised to have been selected in that position by Sir Alex Ferguson.
"Yes, it was a surprise," he told MUTV. "But, if the gaffer says I'm playing there, there's no arguments. I'm happy to be playing.
"It's hard as I've not played there in a while.
"The last time I played there was for Blackburn quite a while ago but I had to adapt. I think it was about breaking the play up and making it difficult for Liverpool to play in there because it was quite congested."
Jones limped off with a knee injury at Anfield but confirmed that there is no lasting damage.
