Manchester United’s Ashley Young is adamant that his club can still challenge for the Premier League crown despite failing to win any of their opening three games of the season, according to Sky
New manager Louis van Gaal is currently trying to stamp his authority and philosophies upon the players but has found life in the Premier League unforgiving as of yet – they trail leaders Chelsea by seven points already.
An opening day loss to Swansea in front of their own fans, followed by unconvincing draws at Sunderland and Burnley, have done little to settle the nerves of supporters with the club also suffering a 4-0 humiliation at the hands of League One MK Dons.
However, heavy investment in the squad has seen a whopping £145m spent whilst players are also trying to adapt to Van Gaal’s favoured 3-5-2 formation, and Young is convinced once this all gels the club can get back to winning ways.
“In previous seasons when we haven’t started the season so well we’ve gone on to win the league,” Young said.
“People have written us off already but everyone here knows you don’t write off a club like United.
“People can say what they want but internally we all know exactly what we’re striving to do, what goals we’ve set and what we want to achieve.
“There is no point panicking after a handful of games. It’s obviously been disappointing but you have to take the positives from the games we’ve had.
“I definitely think things are going to turn for us and I would say to the fans there is nothing to worry about, we’re going to come good.”
United will be hoping to pick up their first three points of the season this weekend as they welcome Queens Park Rangers to Old Trafford, who themselves only claimed their first win last weekend.
