Ashley Young
Manchester United have received a major fitness boost ahead of their crunch clash against Tottenham on Sunday after winger Ashley Young declared himself fitReuters

Manchester United winger Ashley Young who was a doubt for the game against the Spurs, after picking up an injury during their clash against Arsenal in the FA Cup quarterfinals on Monday, has declared himself fit ahead of the match.

Louis van Gaal will hope his team can bounce back following their loss to Arsenal and continue their quest for a place in the top four in the Premier League.

Tottenham are also in the race along with United, and with the Gunners winning on Saturday, the pressure will be on both sides to get a positive result at Old Trafford.

The Dutch manager is without Robin van Persie, who damaged ankle ligaments in the game against Swansea and will be absent until after the upcoming international break.

Marcos Rojo is also a doubt for the game after picking up a minor injury during the FA Cup clash and despite recovering from the knock, the manager admitted that he will rest the player as they have crucial clashes against Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City in the coming weeks.

However, the return of Young will be a major boost as the winger has been one of the best players in Van Gaal's squad in recent months.

"I got a little knock in a tackle in the first half against Arsenal," Young told United's official site. "I should be okay. They are fiery games against Arsenal and there were a few tackles flying about but you just dust yourself down and get prepared for the next game," the English winger added.

The Dutchman has praised the winger recently for his performances and believes that Young is tailor-made to play under him.

The manager also believes that Young is better at the wing-back role he has been playing this season, than his primary role as a winger.
