Ashley Young back in training with Manchester United

by Tanveer Arayan

Ashley Young is back in training this week with Manchester United ahead of Thursday night’s Europa League showdown with Liverpool.

The 30-year-old winger has been out of action for over two months now since Man United’s 1-0 win over Liverpool back in January when he was replaced early on by Cameron Borthwick-Jackson.

While not the best winger in the world, I think Young coming back is actually going to be a real boost for United because since Juan Mata moved into the No.10 role, we’ve not had a consistent right-winger so it’s good to see him back in training.

I can definitely see Young getting some minutes against Liverpool if he is fit enough to earn a place on the bench. When he’s on form, Young is so good at skipping past full-backs and whipping in dangerous crosses.

If we had Borthwick-Jackson on the overlaps down the left flank with Anthony Martial and Young working with Guillermo Varela on the right, that’s some excellent width and options which could prove vital.
