His club boss Sir Alex Ferguson decided that Young would miss that match as a precaution.
But the in-form wideman is expected to be fit for United’s big battle with Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.
Young has possibly been England’s best player in 2011 but he isn’t taking things for granted.
He said: “There is always competition for places.
“The team has changed throughout the campaign but whenever the players are called upon to go out there and play for your country, you want to give it everything.”
