Manchester United fans on Twitter hail Ashley Young’s performance v Swansea

Published 3 Comments

Football News

Ashley Young has divided opinion amongst Manchester United supporters ever since he first arrived at Old Trafford from Aston Villa in the summer of 2011.

His first few years as a United player were difficult - Young himself would probably admit that was true - but the 30-year-old has been one of the Red Devils’ standout performers since Louis van Gaal arrived at the club 18 months ago.

It’s been a stop-start campaign for Young this term but he produced a superb display in the 2-1 win over Swansea City this afternoon.

Young delivered the cross for Anthony Martial’s opening goal and continued to impress as the second half wore on.

It was Martial who won the fans’ vote for Man of the Match after the game but Young deservedly came in second place, ahead of Bastian Schweinsteiger.

And this one made up laugh...

Important win for United

Martial and Wayne Rooney will get the headlines for their goals but Young’s contribution has clearly not gone unnoticed by the Manchester United fans - and it shouldn’t have gone unnoticed by Van Gaal, either.

This was an important victory for United - their first win since beating Watford away in November - and it might have been a different story had Young not been on the pitch.
