Manchester United star Ashley Young insists the club are aiming to win the title, not just finish in the top four, Mirror reports.

The English winger believes that the Red Devils still have a shot to be crowned champions at the end of the season, despite trailing league leaders Chelsea by a massive 13 points.

United’s 2-1 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates was manager Louis van Gaal’s first away win of the season, a result that lifts the club to fourth on the table.

However Young is not satisfied with just Champions League qualification, and believe there is still time to win the title.

“I think the manager has said obviously we want to break that top four,” said Young.

“But you know players and staff at the club, we want to win the league title.

“I think he [Van Gaal] has got that aura. You know he’s got that presence out on the training ground and the training pitch.

“He believes in people, he gives you that belief, he’s an honest man and he just wants everyone to go out there and do well.

The manager wants to achieve massive things, he wants the club to get back to winning titles, and we’re no different to that.

“You know the players have bought into that philosophy since pre-season and that’s exactly what everyone is doing.

“We’re all pulling in the right direction, pulling in the same direction and everybody is leading that charge up the league.”

The former Aston Villa star is predicting that United can go a winning run during the Christmas period, a time when the fixtures come thick and fast in the Premier League.

“I think that’s when we’re at our best,” said Young. “At the turn of the year we always come strong.

“I’m sure it is going to be a busy but good Christmas period and we look forward to that New Year.”
