Abuja - Manchester United defender Phil Jones insists the busy Christmas schedule and possible fatigue is no excuse for failing to pick up all three points against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
"Fatigue is always going to kick in with two games in three days but it's the same for every club in the Premier League,” the England defender told MUTV.
"You have to do it, we have done it, and now we look forward to the game against Stoke on Thursday.”
According to KickOff.com website, Jones admitted it was a tough away fixture for the Red Devils, but revealed his teammates were disappointed at not coming away with a win.
“We created numerous chances in the first half and perhaps should have been three or four nil up at half-time but it wasn't to be,” he said.
"In the second half they came out and pushed us to the end. We knew that would happen but we stayed resilient and we kept a clean sheet.
"It's always nice to come away with a clean sheet but ultimately the lads are disappointed not to have taken all three points.
“I thought Falcao and Robin were terrific. They held the ball up well, they linked up well but it just wasn't our day in front of goal."
United are currently in third place, seven points behind leaders Chelsea.
