Young: We expected to beat Chelsea

Manchester United winger Ashley Young insists the players were confident they could get the better of Chelsea in their Premier league clash on Sunday.

As the league leaders, Chelsea were the favourites heading into the game at Old Trafford, but United pulled off a massively impressive 2-0 win.

Young has revealed that the United players were upbeat ahead of the clash and had belief in their ability to beat the Blues.

"We have felt that kind of performance coming," the versatile 31-year-old said. "There have been a lot of draws at home.

"I don't think a lot of people saw that scoreline coming or the type of game to be honest. We did.

"We have belief in ourselves. I have confidence in every single player in the squad.

"There is great competition in the squad. We have a busy month and everyone has to be ready and on their toes. I don't think a lot of people expected it but we did."
