Calls For Ashley Young To Be Banned For What He Did Against Southampton
Fans have been calling for Ashley Young to receive a ban for what he did against Southampton on Saturday evening.
The United No.18, one of the club's best performers this season, lashed out at Saints' player Dusan Tadic when marking him on a corner in the second half at Old Trafford.
The England international had several looks to see whether Craig Pawson was looking and promptly elbowed the Serbian right in the stomach. It was incredibly snide.

With Tadic not making a meal out of it, and Pawson not seeing the incident in real-time, Young was let off the hook.
But plenty of people on social media want the FA to take action against the former Villa winger:
Hopefully the @FA will look at Ashley Young' s intentional elbow on tadic and suspend him. They didn't waste any time to suspend @chazaustin10 #Saintsfc

James Tarkowski got a 3 match ban for the exact same thing Ashley Young just did to Dusan Tadic. Be interesting to see if the FA do anything, as I eagerly await José's salt-ridden tears

Ashley Young should be punished for that elbow incident. Players been receiving bans for diving and off the ball incidents. Consistency!

Surely Ashley Young will get done for that sly elbow?

@FA reviewing video evidence of Ashley Young's blatant elbow. 'If your ribs hit my elbow, it's your own fault' #MUNSOU #bias pic.twitter.com/S5O8PTdPvx

Mourinho there pointing out to the referee that Southampton should have had a penalty when Ashley Young's elbow went unpunished.
A good, honest egg is Jose. I'm sure Duncan Castles will say the same.

Dear @FA , please look at the Ashley Young elbow and also the same players elbow in Shane Long's face at the previous corner.
Look forward to hearing back from you soon,
