Manchester United fans were left shell-shocked by two beautiful Ashley Young goals that came inside of the first 25 minutes vs Watford, helping his team head into half-time with a comfortable lead.
The English full-back has been in stunning form for the Red Devils and looked fired up as he took on his former club.
Young’s top displays of late saw him recalled to the international senior team and the player does not look like he’ll be stopping anytime soon.
Previously a winger, Ashley’s took advantage of his experience further up the field, managing to score on the half volley and through an incredibly well placed free-kick.
United started slowly vs the London club but thanks to their veteran defender’s clinical finishing, found themselves 3-0 up at the break and fans were happy to give due praise.

Young was once touted to leave Old Trafford but publicly stated his desire to stay and fight for his place.
Since that message the former Aston Villa man has showed the world that he’s not just all talk, quickly becoming Jose Mourinho‘s most reliable left full-back.
Fans have grown to admire his crossing ability and work rate but Ashley has proven adept at defending as well since shifting positions.
Although it’s a compliment and testament to Ashley Young, Jose must be worried that his best two full-backs are veteran former wingers of the club.
