The winger, who left Villa for United in 2011, believes his side’s Champions League victory over Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday will give the team confidence heading into Sunday’s big clash.
United are aiming to respond following their recent back-to-back defeats at Old Trafford in the Premier League at the hands of Everton and Newcastle United and they have an excellent recent record at Villa.
Young is determined to help his side put one over his old club, saying on MUTV: “We want to get back to winning [every week] and there’s no better place to go than Villa Park on Sunday and hopefully get another three points.
“If we put on a display like we did against Shakhtar then we should be able to do that.”
Port Vale boss Neil Aspin is expected to choose from an unchanged squad for the home game against Exeter.
