Young (groin) will be out for "a long time" after finding out he'll need groin surgery.

The versatile winger who has found himself at right back for the past six matches was pulled in the 42nd minute of the last match against Liverpool with this injury, but it was unclear as to the severity of it. Now, the news is in and it's less than ideal. United have been short of fullbacks all season and Young's injury will put a further dent into the team's depth at the back.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Young left Sunday's match against Liverpool in the 42nd minute due to injury.

Young was attended to by the physios after colliding with Liverpool's James Milner, and while he was able to get back into play, he went down again less than one minute later. Cameron Borthwick-Jackson replaced Young, though Matteo Darmian moved from leftback to rightback.

Young (fatigue) is starting Tuesday against Newcastle.

Manager Louis van Gaal noted after the last Premier League match that Young is a bit run down, but with so few available options in the back for United, he'll continue to be out there.

Young was taken off in the 77th minute of Saturday's match against Swansea City due to stiffness, the Manchester Evening News reports. "Ashley Young has played a lot of matches in a row and he is stiff and had to be changed," manager Louis van Gaal said after the match. "It was not voluntary. I changed because I had to change."

Young was very effective in the attack playing as a left back, and he picked up an assist on Anthony Martial's opener. He also drew three fouls and sent in 10 crosses. Paddy McNair replaced him, which moved Daley Blind to left back, and it's unclear if the issue is serious enough for Young to miss any additional time.

Young tallied four crosses, four tackles, four interceptions and picked up a yellow card in the horrendous 2-0 loss to Stoke on Boxing Day.

Young picked up his second consecutive start at right back and was one of the few bright spots in dull United squad. Hes been a good fill in for the injured Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia at the right flank but with the Red Devils unable to punch in the opportunities created from him and on a seven games winless streak, his fantasy upside is very limited. If Darmian is fit enough he may slot right back in the starting XI pushing Young back to the bench for the Monday encounter against Chelsea.

Young (knock) is starting Saturday against Norwich City.

United have been hit with a plethora of injuries along the back line, and Young will get the start opposite Daley Blind, with Chris Smalling and Phil Jones in the middle.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Young will be assessed ahead of Saturday's match versus Norwich after dealing with an undisclosed issue.

The 30-year-old has puzzlingly been left out of the Manchester United squad since November, despite the fact that no specific injury has been discussed, but manager Louis van Gaal cited a "slight problem" that kept him out of last week's match versus Bournemouth. Young participated in full training this week, but it remains to be seen if he is able to convince the boss he is healthy.

Manager Louis van Gaal said Friday that Young is edging closer to full fitness after his recovery from a knock.

Young's playing time is very inconsistent, and while he is a decent crosser when he does play, his fantasy upside can be limiting.
