Young lays down a marker

United winger Ashley Young hopes to have impressed manager David Moyes with his performance in the Reds’ 4-0 Capital One Cup win over Norwich City on Tuesday evening.

The England international proved to be a threat throughout, causing the Canaries constant problems down the left flank. Speaking to MUTV, Young explained how he hoped his impact could go some way towards cementing a place in the Reds XI – starting with Saturday's trip to Fulham.

"I hadn’t played since the Manchester City game so I've been biding my time and waiting for my opportunity to impress the manager," said Young. "I felt that I did well tonight and enjoyed the game, but we’ll see what the manager thought when he picks the team at the weekend."

United’s no.18 went on to talk of how, despite his impressive display, he faces stiff opposition for a regular starting berth owing to the wealth of talent available to David Moyes.

"You can see the depth in our squad when you look at the players who, despite not playing for a number of games, came in and did their jobs really well," Young added.

"It was a great performance and everybody did their jobs, we scored four and we’re delighted with that."
