Ashley Young confident he can help turn things around at Everton

New Everton signing Ashley Young insists he still has the appetite for a fight as his 19th Premier League season began with a defeat.

Ashley Young joined Everton on a free transfer this summer after his contract ended following a second spell at Aston Villa.
Some would view signing for a club which has escaped relegation by the finest of margins in the last couple of years as a gamble but Young is embracing the challenge of helping turn things around at Goodison Park and he was one of the better performers in the 1-0 defeat to Fulham.
"I've said age is nothing but a number. Everyone wants to talk about age with me and to be honest it's getting boring now," he said.
"I know what I give, the manager knows what I give to this team. I am as fit as anyone.
"If I didn't have that hunger and desire I wouldn't be out on the football pitch. I still have a lot to give; I'm a winner and have always been a winner and that is never going to change.
"I want to do well here. The abilities I have got - leadership on the pitch and off the pitch, that winning mentality that I have - can help a squad.
"My attributes will help the squad. It's about seeing what qualities I can bring to the squad, I want to do as well as I can and bring everything I can.
"I said at the time I signed here you always know an Everton team can be back in the top 10 at least.
"I definitely think with work on the training ground and getting points on the board that's where I see the club going."
