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.

Young has recovered from his knock but he is not match fit for Sunday's Manchester derby, manager Louis van Gaal said Friday. "Ashley Young has had three weeks out of training sessions so cannot play against City," van Gaal said.

Young has been a very unreliable fantasy option this season given his inconsistent playing time, and while he sends in plenty of crosses from the wing when he does play, they don't usually turn into assists.

Young (undisclosed) picked up an injury against Arsenal and is unavailable for Saturday's fixture against Everton.

The winger was on a strong run of form, tallying assists in the two Premier League matches he was featured in ahead of the team's match against Arsenal. While he played the full-90 against Arsenal, he must have picked up a knock of some kind.

Young has told manager Louis van Gaal that he is prepared to play as a striker in the absence of Wayne Rooney, who is out with a hamstring injury, reports the Daily Mail.

Marouane Fellaini was deputized as striker last weekend against Liverpool, but it was new signing Anthony Martial who scored his debut goal with the club after coming on as a substitute. Young is available Tuesday against PSV Eindhoven, and James Wilson also travelled with the squad.

Young came off the bench to tally an assist in Saturday's 3-1 victory over Liverpool.

Young came in at halftime to replace Memphis and made the most of his opportunity, providing an excellent service to Anthony Martial on the third goal of the game for United. While he's seen his playing time dwindle, Young is still a key contributor to the United midfield. The assist was his first of the season after five last season in 26 appearances.

Young had one shot, which was on goal, two fouls drawn and nine crosses during Manchester United's 1-0 win over Tottenham on Saturday.

Young appeared headed for an assist on one of his crosses, but Wayne Rooney was unable to shoot on his first touch, with Spurs defender Kyle Walker coming over to try to break it up. The ball ended up in the back of the net thanks to Walker, and while Rooney ended up with the assist in some fantasy formats, Young was simply given a cross. Up next is a trip to Villa Park next weekend.
