Ashley Young Unimpressed By Manchester United’s Season

England international Ashley Young has been left unimpressed by Manchester United’s season and believes there is plenty of room for improvement prior to the 2018/19 campaign. The Red Devils are currently in need of another four points to assure themselves of the runner-spot and they can then switch their focus to the FA Cup final against Chelsea.

Despite this, they have been far off from competing with Manchester City for the Premier League crown and Young believes the club were made to pay for their mistakes during the festive period, in particular, he told ESPN: “It has been one of those seasons when around Christmas we were drawing games, late goals against us, and when you look back at those kind of games then you think the season could have been different. It wasn’t meant to be but we have put down a marker against the top-four, top-six clubs, but it is more than that. We have to win at other clubs as well. We have to win more games than we have done.”

United have produced plenty of dominant displays over the course of the campaign but between them, they have experienced a couple of shock defeats to Huddersfield Town and Newcastle United whilst also being ousted of the League Cup and Champions League by Bristol City and Sevilla respectively.

Regardless of this, they still have time to turn the season into a decent success with the FA Cup final in the horizon. United have won two of their previous three meetings versus Chelsea in the Premier League but they will fancy their chances of a victory based on their recent form against the top-six. Since the January defeat to Tottenham Hotspur, United have faced-off against a top-six rival on five occasions and they have ran victorious in each of those games, though with no clean sheets.
