Ashley Young: “From the first whistle we weren't good enough.“

Updated: Apr 22, 2019

That wasn’t a Man Utd display, says Ashley Young.

Manchester United full-back Ashley Young says his side weren’t good enough against Everton in the Premier League after they were beaten 4-0 on Sunday.

The Red Devils were toothless at Goodison Park as they could only register a shot on target late on in the game after David de Gea had been beaten four times as goals from Richarlison, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Digne and Theo Walcott handed the Merseyside club a huge win.

And after the match, Young confirmed they were below average at best. 

He told Sky Sports: "From the first whistle we weren't good enough. We just weren't right and obviously playing an Everton team full of confidence.

"I don't think that was a Man Utd performance. It's disappointing and we have got four games left, we have got to dust ourselves down - we've got a big one on Wednesday.

"It will show our character, I know we have great talent and it's a big one for us on Wednesday now.

"You set your set your stall to go and be on the front foot and it just wasn't that. You still think if you get that first goal you can get something out of the game but it wasn't meant to be.

"It's crucial when you get the first goal. We couldn't concentrate on them it was us playing out there. When you're a Man Utd team, we had a first shot on goal late in the second half, it's not good enough."

United have now gone 11 consecutive matches without a clean sheet in all competitions for the first time since 1998.
