Manchester United winger Ashley Young believes that the players must take their share of the blame for the team's indifferent season.

Manchester United winger Ashley Young has claimed that the players must take some responsibility for the team's indifferent season.

Ninth-placed United are currently 13 points off leaders Arsenal in the Premier League table following consecutive home defeats to Everton and Newcastle United respectively.

While manager David Moyes has come in for plenty of criticism for those results, Young believes that everyone at the club should take their share of the blame.

"We are the players who go out on the pitch," he is quoted as saying by BBC Sport. "Everyone is in it together; manager, staff and players. We win together, we lose together."

United return to Premier League action on Sunday when they travel to Young's former club Aston Villa.
