Liverpool and Manchester United are embroiled in a crunch tie on Sunday in a game that could determine who finishes in the top 4 and winger Ashley Young is confident his side can get the result against an in-form Liverpool.
Louis van Gaal’s side bounced back from a disappointing FA Cup defeat to Arsenal with an emphatic 3-0 home win over Tottenham Hotspur last weekend, a performance that was described as United’s finest of the season.
Young insisted that United will be travelling to Anfield going for the kill.
“We will go there looking for the three points. We are going there to win, you don’t go to a place to try and draw. The performance against Tottenham was brilliant but we have a tough game coming up at Liverpool. We have got to dust ourselves down in the right way and go for the three points again,” said the former Aston Villa man.
“Morale has always been high. Confidence has always been there too. We were obviously disappointed after the Arsenal game. I said afterwards that it will show how our team spirit and character is with how we bounce back.
“I think if you look at the first 45 minutes (against Spurs) then that was exactly the right way to bounce back.”
The England international also praised Belgian Marouane Fellaini who has been in great form this season and has turned out to be one of Louis van Gaal’s key men.
“He has been very important for us. He has been in the team and when he is in the box, I’m not sure many teams can handle him.
“You saw against Tottenham that he was fantastic at getting in the box and looking like a striker at times. I think he likes playing in that position. We just have to utilise his strengths and I think we did that really well on Sunday.
“I think last season was difficult for a lot of people and this season is totally different.”
