Young: “United can still win the league”

Manchester-United-v-Swansea (2)Ashley Young believes Manchester United are still in the title race despite being nine points behind Arsenal.

United ended a dismal run of form that has seen them going without a win in eight games in all competition as they beat Swansea 2-1 at home on Saturday, but they remain way behind the league leaders and could be five points off fourth place should Spurs win at Everton today.

Young, however, remains upbeat about United’s chances of forcing their way back into the frame.

“Until it’s mathematically impossible, we never count ourselves out,” he said.

“Teams are beating everyone around us and there have been some indifferent results. As long as we concentrate on ourselves and keep getting the three points, I’m sure things will be fine.”

Young was one of the standouts performers against Swansea and received a standing ovation when he was forced off the pitch with 10 minutes to go.

“They’re brilliant and it was nice to get a standing ovation,” said the United winger.

“Hopefully I can keep putting in the performances and they can keep singing.”

    Surely! Now that we recalled Will Keane from Preston (and his impressive 2 goals in the Championship) we’ll be a goal-scoring machine.
    (not sure what Ash is smoking, but I know I’d love some of it)

    It is just a ploy to get more games. I feel kinda bad for Ashley. One of the most impressive performers under Van Gaal and rarely gets to play in his favoured position on the left wing.

    I can see some improvement as Van Gaal abandons his “philosophy” to a degree in a futile attempt to save his own skin. But even with better tactics and a more positive approach our squad isn’t good enough. Aside from De Gea, Smalling, Herrera, Shaw (injured), Schneiderlin and Martial the rest of our squad is painfully mediocre and pedestrian. Even with a more positive approach a top four finish is the best we can expect.
