Ashley Young has warned his Manchester United teammates to risk further scrutiny about their mentality in case they fail to impress against Man City.
‘We’ve just got to apologise to the fans and we’ve got a tough one coming up on Wednesday with the Manchester derby,’ Young told MUTV.
‘We know how important that’s going to be. If you can’t get yourselves up for the Manchester derby, there’s something wrong.
‘I’ve got confidence that we’re going to be ready for Wednesday.
‘It’s a disappointing day today but we’ve got to dust ourselves down fairly quickly and go again this week.
‘It’s four games, it’s four winnable games, If you’d said in October we would be in this position, we’d have taken it, but a club like Manchester United, we should be looking much further up the table.
‘We’ve got four games left, we’ve got four wins to get. It’s going to be tough but I’m sure we can do it. We were 4-0 down and [the fans] were still singing.
‘They’ve been fantastic, and we’ve got to go and put a performance in on Wednesday.’
