Young looking to next season

BY foxsports • May 19, 2011

Villa won 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium and Young would like to see another win at home to Liverpool on the final day of the season on Sunday. He said: "You look back at the rest of the season following the Arsenal win and there's a bit of frustration, wondering why we haven't been able to replicate that sort of form on a regular basis. "There's frustration that we haven't been able to produce that on enough occasions. We knew we could produce this kind of result in the run-up to the game at the Emirates. "We finished sixth three times on the bounce. We know we are a good side and we know we have good players. "For whatever reason, things haven't gone great for us this season but next season with a fresh start I feel we can really kick on and try to prove what a good side we are." Young has also rejected claims that Kyle Walker is better going forward than he is at defending. Young has lost his preferred right-back slot to Walker but has stood up for his team-mate amid claims that he is only an attack-minded player. He added on the club's official website: "Kyle has been brilliant for us. He is so quick. I expect him to go on to play for England many times. "I hear pundits say Kyle isn't great when he's defending but they like saying that every time they see a full-back who is good going forward. "They say Glen Johnson is not a good defender but not many people get past him too easily. "Kyle is a young boy and he is still learning the game but he has that real quality."
