Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand hailed Ashley Young's two-goal performance in victory at Tottenham.

Two goals at White Hart Lane and an assist from a corner to set up Wayne Rooney's opener signalled Young's comeback.

"It is fantastic to see Ashley back," said Ferdinand. "He has been injured and it takes you a couple of games to get back into the groove. Before his injury he was flying and now it looks like he is back into form.

"It wasn't just his goals it was his all-round work ethic. He was helping Patrice Evra as well. He was doubling up and helping and when you have a dangerous player like Aaron Lennon that is great."
