Young has been a key player for Villa this season

Aston Villa winger Ashley Young has been named the Premier League's player of the month for September.

The 23-year-old, who has not missed a minute of Villa's league games this season, also won the award in April.

He scored twice and set up two goals in September as Villa enjoyed three successive wins to move up the table.

Young joins an elite band of players, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard, who have won the award more than once.
