United’s back line is not their strongest suit, and although he has done well at left-back, Ashley Young is not a natural defender.
The former Aston Villa winger said recently that he still sees himself as a wide player in midfield, but he has featured more often as a left-back and that is set to continue with fierce competition for places further forward.

Sevilla’s Sergio Escudero, who has been called up by Spain but not featured at international level for La Roja, would therefore be an upgrade.
A reliable defender who has been at the club since 2015, the 28-year-old would not look out of place in the line-up for Mourinho’s side.
