Misfiring Manchester United will be ready for City test, says Young


Manchester United defender Ashley Young has announced that his teammates are well aware of the importance of Wednesday's Premier League clash against champions Manchester City and need no extra motivation after a 4-0 hammering at Everton.

United, who placed 6th in the English Premier League teams' table, were dealt a blow to finish in the top four at Goodison Park and the nature of Sunday's defeat prompted manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to issue an apology to fans ahead of the clash with their city rivals.

"We know how important that (derby) is going to be. If you can't getyourselves up for the Manchester derby, there's something wrong," Young toldthe club's website.

"I've got confidence that we're going to be ready for Wednesday… we'vegot to dust ourselves down fairly quickly and go again this week… we've gotfour games left, we've got four wins to get. It's going to be tough but I'msure we can do it."

United, who have 64 points from 34 games and sit two points adrift of Arsenal in fourth, face Chelsea, Huddersfield Town and Cardiff City in their final three matches of the season.
