Manchester United fans react to sensational Ashley Young performance vs Watford

Manchester United picked up a richly deserved three points away at Vicarage Road in convincing fashion on Tuesday night. Jose Mourinho’s men closed the gap on Manchester City to five points, in a game that was never going to be straightforward.

However, an outstanding first-half performance from Ashley Young got the Red Devils well on their way, and it was wonderful to watch the veteran put on an absolute masterclass against his former club.

It wasn’t just his goals (that we’ll get to in a minute), it was his overall play. Defensively he was solid, he made the right runs down the wing and picked out a teammate more often than not. A brilliant all-round performance.

Anyway, onto the good stuff. His first was an absolute thunderbolt into the bottom corner, leaving Gomes with no chance in the Watford goal. His second a stunning free-kick that David Beckham would have been proud of. It was hit with inch-perfect accuracy right into the top of the net.

As you’d imagine, Red Devils fans were loving every minute of it on social media, so we’ve compiled some of the best tweets for you.
