Manchester United’s summer signing Ashley Young has been one of the influential players for the club this season. Even when the likes of Dimitar Berbatov and Wayne Rooney has flattered to deceive, Ashley Young has been the one player to deliver the goals and the assists for Manchester United.
Ahead of their crucial encounter with FC Basel in the Champions League, the former Aston Villa winger has said that United will be looking out for nothing but a victory. Manchester United can qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League with a draw, but Ashley Young says that it is very dangerous to head into games with this attitude.
Ashley Young says that the players will perform only if they think that they should win this match. Otherwise, it would be impossible to win the match, as it will be played in front of the FC Basel supporters, who will certainly know that United will be for the taking. Manchester United have only themselves to blame for this position after dropping two points at home to FC Basel earlier on in the season. Manchester United were having a two-goal advantage in the first half, but they let FC Basel back into the game with some sloppy defending in the second half.
The 3-3 draw now means a lot to Manchester United, as they have to come out all guns blazing in the away match against FC Basel. “It would be dangerous to think we only need a draw. No one at this club has that mentality. We still have it in our hands to go there and qualify, which was the main target and we will be trying to win,” the former Aston Villa man said. Manchester United will be without the services of Hernandez for the match.
