Manchester United legend Bryan Robson has warned Ashley Young he is running the risk of not getting a penalty he deserves by developing a reputation as a diver.

For two successive weekends, the England winger has been at the centre of a controversial penalty decision. Both against QPR and Aston Villa, Young was accused of going to ground far too easily in order to gain spot-kicks for his team.

And, ahead of the Sunday lunchtime encounter with Everton, Robson has issued his own words of warning. "I thought the one against QPR was a little bit harsh on them and it probably was a dive," he told BBC Radio Manchester.
