Video: Ashley Young’s Shot Takes Ridiculous Deflection For Lucky Man Utd Goal

Video: Ashley Young’s Shot Takes Ridiculous Deflection For Lucky Man Utd Goal

Ashley Young rescued a lethargic Manchester United side at Old Trafford this afternoon by scoring against Brighton – via an absolutely wicked deflection.

It looked like Jose Mourinho’s men were going to be held to a goalless draw by the Premier League new boys after a turgid first-half, with Brighton often looking like the more enterprising and dangerous side.

But United continued to huff and puff and in the 67th minute, Young delivered the breakthrough – although you probably won’t see a more deflected shot anywhere else in Europe this weekend:

United couldn’t really afford to drop more points in their bid to chase down Manchester City in the title race, so this goal could well turn out to be very important indeed.

Are you as surprised as us to see Young becoming a key part of Mourinho’s United side? The England international seems to be making himself undroppable!
