Young struggling to find place in Man Utd diamond

Ashley Young faces a battle to break back into the Manchester United first team as he returns from injury.

The Manchester Evening News says like Nani, Young will discover, as he attempts to claw his way back into United's XI, that Fergie's new diamond formation could add to the obstacles in his way.

The 'wingless' strategy won't be employed in every match, but it is a tactic that adds midfield security in Europe and for the bigger Premier League matches.

With Champions League matches ahead against Braga and the showpiece Premier League clashes with Chelsea and Arsenal around the corner, it could get more further airing in favour of the Reds' traditional two-winger 4-4-2 style.
