Ashley Young has a tough warning for Man United
Ashley Young talks up the importance of Manchester United's Christmas fixture list
Ashley Young has warned his Manchester United team-mates that they must keep their focus as the hectic festive period in the Premier League looms large.
The Red Devils have made something of a stuttering start to life under new manager Jose Mourinho following his appointment as the club’s new boss back in May.
United have struggled to find consistent form in the Premier League and will be desperate to string a run of positive results together during the busy festive schedule.
And Manchester United winger Young has talked up the importance of producing positive displays during the busy Christmas fixture list.
Speaking to United’s website before Sunday’s clash with Tottenham, Young said: “It’s a vitally important few weeks now. When you go into the Christmas period games come thick and fast, there’s no time to rest because it’s game after game.
“We’re doing everything we can to get the points we need going into that turn of the year.
“We’ve got some tough matches but we’ve got the squad and the players to do the job.”
Manchester United finished fifth and won the FA Cup last season before they opted to sack Louis van Gaal and recruit Mourinho as his successor at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils have not won the Premier League title since 2013.
