Ashley Young says Manchester United's never-say-die spirit separates them from the pretenders.

Young is set to return from injury this week against Europa League opponents Ajax.

He told "The spirit that we have shown throughout the season has always been there. From when I first joined the club you could tell there was a team spirit that went from the dressing room out on to the pitch.

"At my previous clubs that has not been the case but I think you should always play to the final whistle, knowing you are going to create more chances. Until the final whistle goes there are always chances to be created and I think that's part of United's philosophy."
