However, it’s looking like a plausible situation going into the game against Hull City on Saturday thanks to injuries.
Young’s decent cameo against Arsenal in the wing-back position was impressive and he played well there during the pre-season. As for Valencia, there is no alternative unless Rafael is fit.
Up front, Robin van Persie has to be dropped for James Wilson or a returning Radamel Falcao. It’s time he is benched because he simply hasn’t been good enough. Maybe some time out of the first team will make him re-evaluate and come back stronger.
