Manchester United winger Ashley Young left the Red Devils' match with Newcastle United in the first half with a dislocated finger - his status for their next match will be evaluated.
Ashley Young has been a shadow of his former self this season and he has now added a dislocated finger to other injuries and inconsistencies. Adnan Januzaj came into the match for Young and scored a late insurance goal. It isn't clear whether Young will miss any additional time.

The downside to Ashley Young's clash with Hugo Lloris didn't end with the lack of a penalty being awarded to United, the winger also finds himself on the sidelines as a result.

Ashley Young has earned his reputation as a diver over the years. That reputation may have played into the decision not to award Manchester United a deserved penalty against Spurs and Hugo Lloris that, if converted, would have meant a draw rather than a loss for the Red Devils. To add injury to insult, the United winger was also injured in the clash and will miss an unspecified amount of time while his shoulder heals. Jesse Lingard's return from a loan spell at Birmingham may be coming at the perfect time for the club and the player unless United dip into the transfer market or actually give Wilfried Zaha some playing time.

David Moyes will talk to winger Ashley Young after his Real Sociedad 'dive’ as Januzaj emergence makes a summer departure likely.

The Telegraph are going all in on this story, suggesting the storm around Young's latest dive could see the winger heading for the Old Trafford exit. The 28-year old's career has stalled in the past 18 months and he's no longer considered a first team regular, so it may be time for him to move on to give himself any chance of getting back in to the England set-up.

Ashley Young may have joined Twitter but he doesn't appear to be in any danger of joining anyone's team of the week these days.

Former Aston Villa star Ashley Young has been in dramatic decline for the past year plus. Last season he had enough injuries that some of the blame for his poor play was blamed on his health and never finding his best form due to a stop and start season. This season there is no reason to think that his health is a significant issue and yet his performances have been miserable. He isn't successfully crossing the ball, he isn't dribbling past defenders, and his team isn't playing very well. If Leighton Baines or Luke Shaw come in as rumored in January it may see Baines or Patrice Evra move up the formation and take over on the left side of midfield. Wilfried Zaha is another alternative for more playing time but he hasn't seen the field since the Community Shield.

Manchester United winger Ashley Young has joined Twitter with the username @youngy18.

It's a bold move by the player to join Twitter in the midst of a slump in form as it opens him up to a stream of criticism. A good performance against Crystal Palace this weekend would probably do the tenor of his @ mentions a world of good.

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo has created a buzz by saying that he misses English football and that Manchester United is still in his heart.

Fellow analyst Jeremy Spitzberg rightly stated that you could interpret Ronaldo's quotes any way you'd like. You could see them as implying that a move to Manchester United is in the cards this summer. You could just as easily see them as a fond remembrance of a period in his life when times were good and nothing more. Having him back in England is fun to think about but if I were Ashley Young or Wayne Rooney I wouldn't be too worried about my place in the line-up just yet.

Ashley Young, injured in the Manchester Derby, was initially thought to be out for only two weeks but has now been confirmed as out for the remainder of the season with an ankle injury.

United's wing positions have been a revolving door this season with Ryan Giggs, Antonio Valencia, and Nani joining Young in the rotation. With one fewer player available and Nani seemingly out of favor Giggs and Valencia seem to be in line for more playing time as the season winds down. Look for increased production from both.
