The winger was a key performer throughout and watched in delight as Robin van Persie's free-kick flicked off Samir Nasri to regain the lead in the dying seconds after City had battled back from two goals down.
It was further proof, if any was needed, of the Reds' almost unique ability to produce the most enthralling moments of theatre for the supporters and Young is becoming accustomed to such drama.
"Obviously, we wanted to set our stall out as we knew it was never going to be easy coming to a place like this," he told MUTV. "But the way we went 2-0 up was a great feeling for us and everyone was delighted.
"We knew they were going to come out in the second half and conceding two goals is disappointing but, as a team, we have got a never-say-die attitude. We always know there is going to be another chance and, with Robin scoring it, you look at the celebrations and see how much it meant - not just to the players but the staff as well.
"It's the team spirit, will-to-win and that desire to go out to get the three points."
