The England winger followed up his spectacular strike at Stoke City in the Capital One Cup with another beauty past Hammers keeper Adrian and feels the Reds must keep the winning run going.
"Before midweek, I hadn't scored in 18 or 19 months and to get two in a week is fantastic," Young told MUTV. "It's like when buses come along!
"I'm obviously delighted to get on the scoresheet but the performance was even better and I thought we dominated the game from the very start. When we got the first goal, we kicked on from there, kept possession and did a great job, even if West Ham came back into it in the second half.
"It's vitally important [to win] now we are going into this busy Christmas and New Year period. Getting wins and points on the board is what we want to do. We've got nine points up for grabs between now and the New Year and we want to keep building that momentum."
