West Ham United 2-0 Manchester United: 5 Men who were poor for the Red Devils
#4 Ashley Young
The Manchester United skipper continued in the left-back role in the absence of Luke Shaw and offered very little at both ends in the game. Ashley Young was caught out of position on quite a few occasions in the game and West Ham made good use of the gaps on United’s left side. While he failed to impress at the back, his performance going forward wasn’t too good either.
Young actually started the game well, but could not sustain the momentum for the entire 90 minutes. The Englishman failed to combine with Daniel James, and offered very little threat in his forward runs.
Because of this, United’s left-wing was non-existent in attack. The Hammers had no trouble dealing with Young in attack and his position in the team could now be jeopardized by Marcos Rojo’s impressive show in the Europa League.Published 22 Sep 2019, 21:42 IST
