MANCHESTER UNITED’S ASHLEY Young could miss up to three Premier League games after being charged with violent conduct by the Football Association following a clash with Dusan Tadic.

Young appeared to elbow the Southampton midfielder in the stomach as they jostled at a corner during the second half of the 0-0 draw at Old Trafford yesterday.

The England international has until 5pm today to respond. His potential absence is another headache for United boss Jose Mourinho, who is already without a host of first-team players.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is out for a month with a knee injury and Romelu Lukaku is set to miss two games with a head injury sustained against the Saints. Young filled in at right-back on Saturday with Antonio Valencia sidelined with a hamstring injury, while Eric Bailly, Marouane Fellaini, Michael Carrick and Chris Smalling are also sidelined.

An FA statement read: “Young’s charge follows an incident during Saturday’s game against Southampton which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video. He has until 5pm today [31/12/17] to respond.”

In a separate incident, Swansea City right-back Kyle Naughton has been hit with the same charge after appearing to stamp on Watford’s Stefano Okaka during the Welsh club’s 2-1 victory at Vicarage Road.
