Phil Jones calls on his Manchester United teammates to "bounce back" from their derby defeat to Manchester City.

Manchester United's Phil Jones believes that he and his teammates must respond in their next fixture following their defeat to fierce rivals Manchester City.

The Red Devils succumbed to a 2-1 loss at the hands of manager Roberto Mancini's men at Old Trafford last night.

Despite relinquishing three points, the North-West outfit remain 12 points clear at the top of the table ahead of a trip to Stoke City this Sunday.

"We've got to bounce back. We'll get on the training pitch and do what we do best - recover, and we will," Jones told MUTV.

"There were a few sad faces in the dressing room after the game because it's not one you want to get beat in. But we've got to keep our heads up. We're still in a fantastic position.

"The title race is not over but we're in a great position and the lads deserve an enormous amount of credit for putting us there. Hopefully we go [to Stoke] on Sunday, bounce back like we always do and go on to win the league."

United could wrap up the title in a fortnight against Aston Villa.
