Ashley Young has vowed that he will continue fighting to produce his best form for Manchester United between now and the end of the season.

The winger was made Manchester United captain as the Red Devils secured an impressive 2-0 win over Chelsea in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Young has been in good form for the Red Devils whenever called upon this season, with the former Aston Villa man having made 19 appearances in all competitions so far this term.

And the 31-year-old has vowed to keep working harder than ever to prove himself at Old Trafford as the season reaches its conclusion.

Young told MUTV: “I’m just one of those players who want to fight. I’ve got that fight, that hunger in my belly and I’ve got that desire to want to succeed.

“A lot of people will say things about me but I just keep my head down and work hard.

“When I’m in training I work every day, I work hard to be in the team and when you’ve got competition for places in such a fantastic squad, it pushes you on.

“If you were to watch training, there aren’t any challenges that are not in a game. Everybody wants to pull on that shirt, go out there and give 100 per cent. I’m no different to that.”

Young will be hoping to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils take on Anderlecht in the return leg of their Europa League quarter-final clash on Thursday night at Old Trafford.
