Manchester United are hitting form at just the right time in the season according to winger Ashley Young, who has been an integral part of this revival at Old Trafford.
United have managed to win the last five league matches and this has propelled them into a position from where they can even think about the Premier League title with almost 10 games remaining. Chelsea continue to remain as the favourites for the trophy, butUnited are becoming an ever-increasing threat along with Arsenal.Young appeared to be on the fringes of a United exit in the summer, but the experienced campaigner has become an integral part of the team.
Initially, he was used as the left wingback in place of Luke Shaw. Now, he is being used in his usual position of a left winger. He has formed an impeccable partnership with Marouane Fellaini in the left side of the midfield. The 29-year-old received the man of the match award in the recent 4-2 win over Manchester City. Apart from creating two goals, he also scored one himself. Even though top four was the primary objective at the start of the campaign, United’s good form could see them as unlikely title winners because of the run.
“It’s nice to be winning, but it’s about that momentum — especially when you are going into this vital stage of the season.United teams always come strong at this stage, and we are showing in every game just how strong we can be.It’s nice to go out and win games and control games too. You saw against Villa that we controlled it from the first whistle right until the end, not just in terms of possession but also getting in the box and having shots at goal,” said the former Aston Villa winger.
