Man Utd attacker Young thrilled with breakthrough goal

Manchester United winger Ashley Young was delighted with his goal in their Capital One Cup win at Stoke City.

Young's exuberant reaction to scoring was a sure sign of tension being released from a player whose only headlines in recent times have centred around diving.

"It is a long time since I scored," he said.

"You saw how much it meant to me from my celebrations. I want to get back on the scoresheet and I want to get back to playing.

"I am like everyone else in the squad. I want to play every week. Hopefully I have given the manager some more food for thought.

"He hasn't got an easy job to pick the team with the squad we have got. I wouldn't like to be doing it."
