Young confident of progress

Published Add your comment

Ashley Young is convinced Manchester United can create a bit of history by overturning a 3-2 first-leg deficit against Athletic Bilbao on Thursday night.

United have only lost 10 home games in their long European history. Prior to last week's loss at Old Trafford, two had come in first-leg knockout ties, against Bayern Munich in 2001 and AC Milan, also in the Champions League four years later. On both occasions Sir Alex Ferguson's men were beaten in the second legs as well.

It is a run that must come to an end in the San Mames Stadium if United are to retain an interest in the Europa League and Young said: "It is unusual that we find ourselves in this position but there is a great team spirit here and everyone is full of confidence."
