Manchester United right-back Ashley Young insists his side will go into Sunday’s eagerly awaited clash with Liverpool full of confidence.
The Red Devils put in an commanding performance on Monday night to beat Chelsea 2-0 in the FA Cup at Stamford Bridge, bouncing back in impressive fashion from the first loss of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reign against PSG in the Champions League.
Monday’s victory was the third time Manchester United have won away to a top six side since Solskjaer was appointed just before Christmas, and veteran Young has revealed that his side will be full of belief that they can get a positive result when Jurgen Klopp’s side visit Old Trafford this weekend.
“It gives us all massive belief – obviously you will get confidence from winning games,” Young told the Guardian.
“We beat Spurs away and Arsenal away and now Chelsea away. We knew Chelsea’s weaknesses and we knew how we wanted to play the game and I think we did that superbly well from the start until the end.
“It was magnificent and I think we had another gear to go. That says a lot about us bouncing back from midweek and getting a result.”
The last time the sides met was back in December, a fixture which Liverpool won comfortably 3-1, and turned out to be Jose Mourinho’s last game in charge of United.
