The United winger was cautioned for simulation during the first half, and then went on to win a penalty on the stroke of half-time in an incident that saw Kagisho Dikgacoi sent off.

Holloway was in typically candid form, but refused to be drawn into making any outspoken comments following his two-match touchline ban and £18,000 fine for berating the referee after the defeat by Tottenham.

Holloway watched the game at Old Trafford from the stands, and admitted that his side were overawed by the occasion.

The manager's initial reaction to being asked about Young's dive was to turn his back and declare: "I think that is safer don't you?"

"My opinion doesn't count," Holloway said. "I realise that now.

"All I can talk about is what led to it, which is us playing the occasion rather than the game. I will not get drawn into a situation where people have to make decisions and they affect me. Emotionally I am in the right place now.

"I would like to keep my money in the bank and pay for my own daughter's wedding this summer. I don't talk about other people's players. If you want to meet me down the pub later on I will tell you exactly what I think."
