[Aston Villa defender Tyrone Mings has praised John Terry’s influence on his development from Championship defender to England squad member] John Terry has developed my game for sure. I’ve been fortunate to work with some really good coaches over the years – Mick McCarthy, Eddie Howe, Dean Smith. John Terry is just another great example of somebody I can learn from, who has been there and achieved everything I would want to achieve in the game. To learn from him and take little pieces of advice from him is something I feel really fortunate to be able to do

[Mings values the Chelsea great’s honesty and vast knowledge of defending at the top level] We watch clips of my game back and John will tell me what he likes and what he doesn’t like. At the moment there’s more of the former than the latter, but he’s worked under such great managers that he has all the experience that I’d love to have so anything he tells me really sticks. We then try to implement that on the training pitch. He gives me a little bit of criticism but mostly it’s a lot of positivity

[England defender Tyrone Mings following incidents in Bulgaria says Racism protocols were ‘effective’] I think UEFA’s racism protocol]</b> was effective, I don’t know whether certain members of the crowd were removed, obviously there were announcements that went out. I think whatever the protocol was, the correct steps that were taken definitely helped and we made a decision at half-time to come out and play the game, which we thought was the right decision. If anything else was to happen then we would have taken appropriate action. We’re ultimately delighted with the result at the end

[Mings was delighted to make his debut and thought the team handled the adverse circumstances well] It was good, obviously it was a great occasion, I made my England debut. Slightly overshadowed by a few disappointing chants, it was quite clear to hear on the pitch. But I think we showed a great response, we showed a good togetherness. Ultimately we let the football do the talking, and I think the higher powers will hopefully deal with the incidents that happened but yeah, we couldn’t do much more than what we’ve done on the pitch

[Tyrone Mings has warned his Aston Villa team-mates to be wary of the threat posed by Marcus Rashford when they face Manchester United] Knowing that he’s [Rashford] a good player and knowing how to stop him are two very different things. He’s a fantastic talent - you saw his goal against Chelsea [a stunning free-kick in the Carabao Cup] - and a player who can produce moments of magic. Coming on for England - his goal against Kosovo - he’s a wonderfully gifted player. I think we’ll all have our work cut out on Sunday as a back four but we’ll be looking to back up our most recent clean sheet with another one

I wouldn’t say they are there to be got at but I would definitely say that they probably haven’t clicked this season as they would have liked to. They’re probably quite frustrated with the results that they’ve had. Some of their key players being injured hasn’t helped either but we have all respect for every team in the league and Sheffield United are a good team as well, so there’s no surprise that they cause teams problems.

With Man United, we’ll look at what their weaknesses are and how we can attack them and how we can nullify them. They’ve obviously got world-class players all over the pitch so we’ll know full well the challenges that we’ll face but we haven’t gone to any team so far and been humiliated so that stands us in good stead, knowing that we can go toe-to-toe with anyone. Being at such a big club like United obviously comes with massive expectation and I think if you get into a game and things aren’t perhaps going well for them on the pitch, naturally fans seem to turn against you. So if that situation was to arise then potentially it’s something we can use to our advantage

[Aston Villa defender Tyrone Mings has said that Premier League players know they are ‘commodities’ and that the league’s restart is almost entirely about money] The motives are possibly 100 per cent financially driven rather than integrity driven. I am all for playing again because we have no other choice. As players, we were the last people to be consulted about Project Restart and that is because of where we fall in football’s order of priority. That isn’t a problem. We are commodities in the game and we accept that. We got the option to come back to training and that’s fine because we didn’t have to but if the FA and the EFL and the Government and UEFA and the Premier League all say you are going back to play, it really doesn’t make any difference what the players think because you are going back to play. It is get in or get out

It is important that players are given the choice. It’s a personal thing. If you don’t want to do it, you absolutely don’t have to. People have aired their concerns about families’ health and I back those people 100%. That is something people have to take into consideration really carefully. No one should ever be on the end of personal abuse for making a decision based on their families’ needs or health needs. Project Restart is financially driven. I think everybody accepts that. But that’s fine with me because I look at this monster that is Premier League football and the revenue it creates and I didn’t moan about being a part of it when everything was great so I’m not going to moan now when the atmosphere around the game is more hesitant
