Former Manchester United striker Dion Dublin feels Ashley Young's return gives them an ideal title boost.

Dublin believes the former Aston Villa man is now critical to United’s bid for a 20th league title.

“Ashley finds that little space in the top corner and he puts it on to his right foot and curls it. If teams are not savvy to that at the moment then he will keep continuing to do it,” Dublin told the Manchester Evening News.

“Several times he has done it this season where he leans into the corner and sends a shot just over the keeper’s left shoulder. He does it so well.

“If United can keep finding him in those positions he will score a lot more goals. He creates and he scores and that is a rarity these days.

“As a winger you have to do two things guaranteed. You either score a goal or you create a goal. It is as simple as that. At the moment, Ashley Young is doing both and if United are to win this league they need to keep him firing because he will get his fair amount of goals.”
