Manchester United winger Ashley Young has promised the fans 'big things' to come this season after an impressive debut at West Bromwich Albion.

The summer signing was pivotal for the Red Devils in their 2-1 win at The Hawthorns, with Young setting-up Wayne Rooney for the opener on 13 minutes and firing the ball across goal and into Steven Reid for the winning own goal.

It was a far from straightforward victory after a fantastic start to the game from Sir Alex Ferguson's side, and Young believes the United ethos of playing until the very end has embedded itself into the newest players at the club.

“It was the first game of the season and we knew it was going to be tough going to The Hawthorns. We had to grind it out and that’s what we did,” said the winger.

"We have got that never-say-die attitude and we keep going until the final whistle, and we got the rewards at the end of the day when we got the winner."

“Everyone has got a great understanding of how to play and that’s why the players here have won so many titles. Now I'm here, whenever I go out and put on the United shirt, I want to do well. I think there are big things to come from this team."


 

After losing senior members Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand in the second-half, the tide appeared to be turning against the Red Devils as Roy Hodgson's side searched for a winner.

Young was in no doubt that United would be able to create a match-winning chance though, and the England international was left to thank a little bit of luck along with the perseverance which led to his side taking all three points.

“We were always going to create chances throughout the ninety-plus minutes. That is the way we are drilled and worked, to play until the final whistle,” he concluded.

That is what we did and we knew we’d get another couple of chances. Luckily mine went in and it was nice to get the win.”
