Manchester United ace Ashley Young hasn't lost his belief that they can win the title.

Young is hoping the festive fixtures enable United to turn up the heat on their bitter rivals Manchester City.

He told the Mirror: "I do believe we can win the title. We are this side of Christmas and have many games to play and points to play for.

"If we keep up the form we have shown from the start of the season, then I am sure we will be able to retain that title.

"There are going to be a lot of games to look forward to and we have to keep ourselves fresh and go into games confident.

"The manager instills that and we go out there and enjoy it."
