Ashley Young: Top four still in United's hands.

Manchester United winger Ashley Young was disappointed with their 1-0 defeat to West Brom at Old Trafford but says his side have the character to bounce back and seal a Champions League place this season.

Jonas Olsson's goal in the second half, saw Louis van Gaal's team suffer a third consecutive defeat in the Premier League - the first time since 2001 - and they are now four points ahead of arch rivals Liverpool who sit in fifth place.

However, Young insists they have to get back to winning ways and when asked if he still believed the Reds could make the top four, he told MUTV: "Of course there is. As players and staff, there’s no doubt we can qualify for the Champions League and that was always what we wanted to do.

"It’s still in our hands and we have three massive games coming up. We have another tough game away to Palace next weekend and we want to get back to winning ways.

"We knew West Brom were going to park the bus and that’s what they did," Young continued. "You have to try and find spaces but it’s hard when they have every man behind the ball.

"We have the team spirit and character to bounce back from this defeat. We’ll work again this week, prepare on the training pitch and hopefully things will go right next weekend."
