United have now won six on the bounce.
"It is more the character and the team spirit we have got, to bounce back from defeats and disappointing performances," the 28-year-old said.
"We show that resilience, that strength in depth in the squad, that team spirit - we have got all that off the field, so when you take that onto the field, you win games and we have shown that in the past few performances.
"I keep talking about the momentum we are building. As long as we keep playing the way we have, we will keep building that up."
Young continued: "If you were to ask anybody around the club, no-one would have ever said we were out of the title race.
"We have to just keep winning games. Our momentum is building now and we have to keep playing as we have done to take those chances which will see us back up the table.
"We have another tough game coming up on New Year's Day against Tottenham, but, hopefully, if we can continue to play the way we have been doing, then we can get another three points."
