A really disappointing end to a week of tough away games. We know what yesterday meant to our fans and rest assured that during the international break we'll be doing everything to make sure it's 3 points next time out at Old Trafford ... See moreSee less

Time to leave Young Thanks for your playing

its not about the score ashley,its about a bunch of multi million priced players that cant even complete three passes as if u dont train together during the week

With people like you, Smalling, Jones, Lingard, Rashford, Fellaini, Lukaku and most importantly Jose Mourinho, Manchester United will never win the league and Manchester will be blue forever which hurts

Ashley I keep hearing this every 2nd week now.

Dalot should be playing ahead of u..u have nothing to offer defensively n going forward. Look at the third goal, all defenders pushed , u just remain de, n gundogan scod. U have been a great servant for the club, but right now, u don't deserve to play for a club like Manchester utd

Never give up.. But not these nouse on social media... You guys were disgrace yesterday and its difficult to believ that you do train... No composure, no runs, losing position easily to opponets easily and now we hav a negative GD jst becoz our creativity is not convincing.... Work hard in silence so that people should appreciate your succes

Captain, my advice is tell JM to stop playing defensive football he should allow the boys to come out and attack because everyone knows that Manchester United right from time they do play attacking football and not defensive football

You were all like dummies on the field yesterday. Allowing your opponents to posses the ball for two or more minute without any urge to retrieve it until it ended up in the net. So so disappointed with that unprofessionalism shown by you guys.

Please tell JM to sell Lukaku, smalling, lindelof, Fred and fellaini. Young and valencia to play FA ad Carabao

Last night city was playing whith non league club not whith united

Never give up, I always trust you✊❤

i understand that yesterday was a taugh game but next time💪💪👀

Blind passes, lack of confidence and failure to attack clubs, I believe we may not even make it to the top four because all your games are very defensive.You always tend to become aggressive & attacking when a club scores against you first, which is very wrong.Others want to over hold the ball yet can't withstand the energy of the opponents ending up loosing the ball so easily.JM shld play attacking football not defensive.

With guys like u, lingard, matic, smalling, Jones, and Herrera in the squad just foget even top four place

Can we expect at least 2 shots on goal next time? Also, how about a crunching tackle next time they dick around for 5 minutes and 45 passes in midfield?

Why was it a defensive line-up. Young played off-point there was nu focus.. Don't act like your name. Play the game boy😄

It was a long streak of tough away games.. Keep fighting for the shirt

Who give you a chance to play football 😤😡 ?? Plz fareg


ashley ... you just shoudl attack the ball if you wanna win ... you and all the others slept ... noone attacked the opponent and you were waiting and begging for the goal ... that is nothing excusable ... you should go inside you and think about the situation the team is... and then you should start taking responsibility as captn and talk to mourinho , he hasnt developed anything, he is going to kick you and us as fans out of the top 6 ... you shoud step and try getting the team forard- first step is installing a new manager, if there is no one - there are still mckenna and carrick! please be a captain and fight for the team .. not a manager who definetly cant get us back where we belong to!

You should never play for United again

Rubbish! Useless team! Out played in all areas! Ha!

Thank god for that for a second I thought we may loose again

You don’t deserve to be my captain actually Young, you so weak you can’t defend in your position leave helping others you and lingard did nothing yesterday so sad 😞

Or write another essay apoplogizing to united fans from now till the next meeting at old traford against city .. you will lose anyway

Hi Young, It's my birthday.

Thank you for believing your abilities

We had the luck of the devil. Nevertheless it was a fantastic performance. We are rebuilding slowly but surely. If there's a team to compete with City it's MU. Let's hope we give it a good show this Sunday.

Lingard should not play from the begining in games like this important stages, he needs still time. Well played.. 💪

Great player Ashley Young got him on my shirt today 😉 👍 :D 1 of the best defenders we have

This is Manchester United..

Disappointed matic didn’t wear a poppy though and gave no reason for not remembering those who died

He is the best Captain we have had for a very long time. His workmanship is amazing.. He instills belief.. Pogba wasn't the best choice for a captain

Ashley we all proud of you MU supporters and we will hope United became more better. We believe United ☺😍😍

Never afraid of hard work, he'll always do his bit and more.

You are a class act Ash 👍

Young Keep The Fire Burning Bro We Are Proud Of You,,,you Proved To Us When U Used To Play As Winger And Now N Back Line Also You Doing Perfect # You Are The Best Young

#Forever in mind.
