Cape Town - Robin van Persie got back on the scoresheet after a disappointing run as Manchester United strolled to a 3-0 victory over Hull at Old Trafford on Saturday.
Louis van Gaal's side retained their place in the Premier League's top four thanks to a third successive win secured by Chris Smalling's opener, a Wayne Rooney strike and Dutch forward van Persie's first goal in his last four club matches.
And with one defeat in eight games, plus upcoming fixtures against Stoke and Southampton in the next nine days, there is a growing belief at Old Trafford that United can secure a place in next season's Champions League.
Ashley Young will play many of those games at left-back and the winger has no problem with his new role.
"Obviously it's a new position for me to play in but I know the job that I have got to do there because we practised during the week," Young told ManUtd.com.
"I knew what I was supposed to go out there and do and it was fluid. Everyone was rotating and everyone was moving. I don't think Hull could deal with that.
"We got on the scoresheet early on and needed to attack and be aggressive in our play against them, pressurising high up.
"It paid off because we kept on winning the ball back. It was hard for Hull to pick players up, particularly our midfielders, and the way they rotate means it is always difficult for a team to play against.
"It's always nice to see players rotate in front of you as you are able to get the ball and find an easy pass and just go forward and attack.
