Video: Ashley Young’s Marvellous Free-Kick Against Watford is a Thing of Beauty

Ashley Young continued his hot goal-scoring form for Manchester United tonight in incredible circumstances – by netting a wonderful free-kick against Watford.

The England international is going through something of a renaissance at the moment under Jose Mourinho and has made the left wing-back role his own since the start of the season.

He opened his tally for the season in the 1-0 win over Watford on Saturday but there was some dubiety over whether or not he would be awarded the goal after it took a wicked deflection.

However, he scored to make it 1-0 this evening with a powerful low drive, and quickly followed it up with an absolutely marvellous set-piece:

That is, without doubt, a thing of absolute beauty; a masterpiece!

A lot is often made of Mourinho’s so-called dour style of football but it shouldn’t be overlooked how he manages to reinvigorate players like Young.

What do you make of the goal?
