United are currently seven points adrift of the top four and 13 behind leaders Arsenal.
Young thinks, however, if they can have a good festive programme they can close the gap on their rivals.
"We want to build on this win, especially around Christmas time when you have games coming thick and fast and it is a vitally important period," he said.
"There are plenty of games and plenty of points to play for. There is another tough test coming up this weekend but we can definitely go there and keep the momentum going into the new year.
"Last night we put on a good performance, finished top of the group and we can build on that."
