Manchester United winger Ashely Young is confident that his display against Norwich City will have impressed manager David Moyes.

The 28-year-old played his first full 90 minutes of the season against Chris Hughton's side, as United cemented their place in the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup by running out 4-0 winners.

Young had not played a Premier League game since his side's shock 4-1 defeat against arch-rivals Manchester City at the end of September.

And Young hopes that his lively performance on the left wing would have helped him to cement a place in Moyes' plans for the Premier League champions' match against Fulham at the weekend.

Young, speaking to MUTV, said on his performance: "I hadn’t played [from the start] since the Manchester City game so I've been biding my time and waiting for my opportunity to impress the manager.

"I felt that I did well tonight and enjoyed the game, but we’ll see what the manager thought when he picks the team at the weekend."

Young faces stiff competition for a spot in Moyes' team - with the likes of Nani, Antonio Valencia and Shinji Kagawa all vying for a spot in United's starting line-up.

"You can see the depth in our squad when you look at the players who, despite not playing for a number of games, came in and did their jobs really well," added Young.

"It was a great performance and everybody did their jobs, we scored four and we’re delighted with that."
