Since arriving from Aston Villa in 2011, Ashley Young has almost seamlessly adapted to life at Old Trafford to become a formidable attacking weapon for Manchester United.

Although his first season in M16 ultimately ended in disappointment - with rivals Manchester City stealing the title on the final day - there were plenty of individual highlights for the England international, most notably a couple of doubles against Spurs and Arsenal.

A much-deserved England call-up for Euro 2012 soon followed and, after years of climbing the ladder, the tricky winger had finally reached the higher echelons of football.

Of course, his career had been on an upward curve for some time. At Watford, where he was once on the brink of being released, Young became an integral player and eventually caught the interest of high-flying Aston Villa in 2007.
