Manchester United winger Ashley Young has hailed his side’s 8-2 win over Arsenal but hopes they can maintain the good form throughout the season.
The summer signing from Aston Villa scored two stunning goals to help Sir Alex Ferguson’s side inflict a humiliating defeat on the Gunners at Old Trafford.
Reflecting on the game on Sunday, Young was over the moon with the team’s performance and urged his side not to stop there.
“We went about our job from the first minute all the way through to the last,” Young told MUTV.
“We were terrific. We found an Arsenal team who weren’t so good on the day and we’ve punished them.
“You see the way we go forward at pace and we’re always looking to create chances from the first minute right to the end. We were terrific today, from the goalkeeper to the front man.
“It was a great team performance and hopefully we can continue that form we’ve shown so far and take that right the way through the season.”
The England international also heaped praise on hat-trick hero Wayne Rooney.
“The boys are delighted for him [Rooney] to get the hat-trick,” he added.
“I think he even wanted to give up the penalty to Giggsy [Ryan Giggs], which just shows what kind of person he is and it was brilliant for him.”
Speaking on goalkeeper David de Gea’s performance on Sunday, where the Spaniard made a penalty save against Robin van Persie, Young believes he can only get better.
“It was a great save,” he said of De Gea’s penalty stop. “We’ve seen it in training, how good he is, and he’s shown it again today.
“The penalty save was terrific and throughout the game he did great.”
