Young: United can go all the way

Manchester United's solid defence and attacking options make Ashley Young believe Champions League glory is realistic this season.

For the first time since 2013-14, the three-time European champions are back in the knockout phase of the continent's top competition.

Wednesday sees Jose Mourinho's side take on Sevilla in the first leg of the last-16 clash, yet there is already half an eye on the Kiev finale this May.

Having lifted the Europa League last year, experienced full-back Young sees no reason why they cannot challenge for the Champions League this time.

"Of course (we can win the Champions League)," versatile full-back Young said.

"You don't enter a competition not to win it. That's what we will be looking to do and take each game as it comes. The next one is against Sevilla. That's a tough away game like Huddersfield, like Newcastle away. That's what the stadium is like. We just have to concentrate on ourselves."

Young has also not given up on usurping runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City - "we know the points difference but never say never" - having reached the FA Cup quarter-finals.
