United continued their blistering form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with a 3-0 win over Fulham in the Premier League on Saturday with Paul Pogba netting a brace and Anthony Martial also getting on the scoresheet.
However, Solskjaer has surprised his critics by masterminding a brilliant 12-game unbeaten run in all competitions to close the gap on the top four despite being handed the job with Manchester United 11 points adrift of fourth spot.
"But we've got Liverpool, we've got (Manchester) City (still to play), so we might have a say in what's happening at the top of the table", he said.
Asked if Solskjaer had shouted at the players, Young told L'Equipe: "That shows you're not in our dressing room, because I can tell you that we've had some hairdryer treatments recently".
Pogba added: "It is his (Solskjaer's) joy. We always hope, but the first exam was not good".
Paris Saint-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel faces the task of drumming up an emergency plan for the visit to Manchester United in the last 16 of the Champions League in the definite absence of Neymar and the possible unavailability of Uruguay forward Edinson Cavani.
However, if stats are anything to go by, Pogba seems to be enjoying a new lease of life since the arrival of interim boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Injuries to the likes of Rashford or Martial might not be the end of the world if somehow Alexis Sanchez can finally find the form that made him a world class player before his arrival at United.
"It'll be super hard [for him to play at Old Trafford]".
"He is asking me to attack more".
Manchester United want to sign Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon in the summer.
Thiago Silva and Presnel Kimpembe are relatively easy choices ahead of the likes of Chris Smalling, Victor Lindelof, Phil Jones and Eric Bailly, despite United's significant improvement defensively under Solskjaer.
"I don't really want to talk about the result we are aiming for tomorrow", remarked the 45-year-old, "but we're here to score, absolutely".
"I don't think we are necessarily favourites", Martial said.
Suddenly, their visit to Old Trafford has taken on a daunting dimension.
