Ashley Young: Handed first start since the derby defeat

Young returned to the side for Tuesday night's cup tie against Norwich and played his part in a convincing 4-0 win at Old Trafford.

The 28-year-old winger had been absent from the side since the dismal 4-1 defeat against Manchester City in September, but is keen to force his way back into David Moyes' plans.

"I have not played since the City game," he told MUTV. "I have been waiting my time and I wanted to get out there and impress.

"I felt I did well, I enjoyed the game. We will have to wait and see what the manager thinks come the weekend."

Exciting young duo Adnan Januzaj and Wilfried Zaha were also given run outs against Norwich and Young admits there is a healthy competition for places in the squad.

He said: "You just have to look at our squad - players that haven't played have come in and done well.

"Everyone did their jobs. As a whole it was a great team performance.

"Scoring four goals and creating more opportunities to score goals was brilliant.

"From the first whistle there was only one team in it and that was us."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
