Match-winner Ashley Young warned Manchester United's title rivals there were "big things to come" from the champions this season.

Summer signing Young was on cloud nine after scoring late to earn Sir Alex Ferguson's side a 2-1 win against West Brom at The Hawthorns on Sunday.
His deflected effort spared fellow new signing David De Gea's blushes after the Spain youngster allowed a routine shot from Shane Long under his body to cancel out an opener from Wayne Rooney.
Former Aston Villa favourite Young was thrilled to get off the mark in an impressive competitive debut for the champions and revealed he felt at home among familiar faces.
"Obviously I have played with a few of the boys with England and you get to know their game there," he said. "I've got to know those players even more through training and pre-season here."
Next up for United is the visit to Old Trafford of top-four hopefuls Tottenham next Monday and Young said it was vital he continued to impress his new employers.
He added: "Everyone has got a great understanding of how to play and that's why the players here have won so many titles. Now I'm here, whenever I go out and put on the United shirt, I want to do well. I think there are big things to come from this team."
