Young fancies chances

Ashley Young is targeting a 2-0 victory in Bilbao as the Reds look to overturn a 3-2 deficit against Athletic Club in the Europa League.

Although a clean sheet must be a priority, a glut of goals could end up aiding United in terms of the overall picture of the tie after being beaten in the five-goal thriller at Old Trafford. However, winger Young is setting his sights on a shut-out and a pair of goals that would send Sir Alex's side into the quarter-finals.

"It is unusual that we find ourselves in this position [losing the home leg] but it is a very high-spirited camp," explained the England international. "There is a great team spirit here and everyone is full of confidence, especially with the way things have gone of late and everyone is looking forward to Thursday.

"Our form in general makes us believe we can score wherever we play. Our attacking play has been fantastic and we believe we can score the two goals we need. Everybody has been chipping in with the goals of late. Whoever scores the goals, as long as we get two, that is all that matters."
