Man United vs Liverpool: Ashley Young

With just nine games left to play in the 2012/13 campaign, the Red Devils are currently 15 points ahead of nearest challengers and Manchester City, who are almost destined to surrender the title to their arch-rivals come May.

While United have been dominant in the league this season, Young's contribution has been restricted by a number of injuries but now that he's back to full fitness, he is hoping to play a bigger role in the run-in.

"It's been frustrating as a player when you're injured and seeing the other players training every day," he told MUTV. "It's where you want to be, not in the gym every day.

"You want to get yourself outside. For me, the injuries have been very disappointing and I just wanted to get myself back fit.

"Fingers crossed, from now until the end of the season, I can stay injury-free and get a run in the team."

The England international also admitted he is much better playing games than watching them.

"I am a bad watcher," Young added. "Anybody who has been sat next to me knows I'm not a good one to watch games.

"As long as I keep myself fit and stay in the team, I'm better off doing that than watching the games."

Young joined United from Aston Villa at the start of last season and weighed in with eight goals in 33 games in all competition in his first year at Old Trafford.
