Ashley Young has already become an essential player for Manchester United in his relatively short time at the club, reveals Dwight Yorke.

The 26-year-old has enjoyed an explosive start to his career at Old Trafford, and looking ahead to this weekend's Manchester derby, the Red Devils favourite has backed the winger to inspire United to victory.

"I was interested to see how he would fit into the United set-up but he's gone in there and started on the front foot," said Yorke.

"When you do that and you play with fantastic players around you, you go from strength to strength."


Sir Alex Ferguson has integrated a number of new players into his first-team line-up this year, with Young arriving at Manchester United from Aston Villa in the summer - the same move that Yorke made himself back in 1998.

And having played in seven of the club's first eight league fixtures, the former Villa man is tipped to have an even bigger impact this year.

"Ashley Young has become a key figure in that Man United team," he added. "He's become an essential player in the ranks and one that really needs to perform on the big stage, which I'm sure he will.

"He's better than I thought. I was a little bit sceptical to see how he was going to adjust, but he's gone in there and grasped the opportunity."
