Ashley Young returned to top form to help Manchester United return to winning ways against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
After struggling like most during three straight defeats, Young assisted both of United’s goal and overall was a constant threat down the left.
His cross hit Scott Dann’s hand for the first goal, before placing another on Marouane Fellaini‘s head, not for the first time. Young also had a shot deflected wide and put a chance on a plate for Juan Mata.
Rumours of a new three-year deal for Young didn’t go down well with the majority in midweek, but he responded and had fans praising his performances once again.
And whats up with Young haters? Our Player of the season by a mile.

With much conjecture about what Memphis Depay‘s arrival means for Young, the winger couldn’t have responded any better.
Undoubtedly an important squad player next season, Young at least has shown his importance to Louis van Gaal.
