The winger appeared to take an intentional tumble against his former team to win a spot kick that helped set United on course for a 4-0 win at Old Trafford (UK users can see our video of the incident playing in the box on the right).
And both The Sun and the Daily Mail take great delight in calling the England star a "cheat", quoting a Tweet - subsequently deleted - from Newcastle's Ryan Taylor.
"Ashley Young is an absolute disgrace. He is the biggest cheat in the league," Taylor had written, before adding in a subsequent post how it, "winds me up watching fellow professionals dive."
Strong words, but the stats do suggest that Young knows how to, shall we say, make the most of things: the penalty on Sunday was the 11th that Young has won the in last two seasons. Sure, a tricky winger with a habit of cutting inside to make dangerous runs into the box is likely to earn his fair share of spot kicks - but the player with the second most penalties in his favour over that same period is Luis Suarez with five.
There is yet more controversy elsewhere in the papers as the debate about
"How could ref call this a goal?" the back page of the Daily Mail asks pleadingly, along with an unhelpful picture that is quite clearly not taken at the moment when the ball was nearest to the line.
Anyone reading the paper - or The Sun, or the Daily Express among others - would think that referee Martin Atkinson needs instant dismissal from the roster of referees for such a crass error, with each paper marrying inflammatory headlines to pointless photos.
But readers of the Daily Mirror and Daily Telegraph - two groups not often lumped together - will come away with a very different impression as their pictures show a ball that could very easily have been considered as having crossing the line. The Telegraph's crop even shows Atkinson in proximity, suggesting that his controversial call was made from a decent position.
The TV pictures - taken from a totally different angle - appear to show the exact opposite, of course. And conspiracy theorists will no doubt delight in the fact that the critical photo was taken by FA photographer Matt Lewis rather than one of the newspaper or agency snappers.
