Re: LIVE - Champions League: Barcelona v Manchester United

Carrick has scored three times in 51 Champions League games. Two of those were in the 7-1 hammering of Roma in 2007. Unlikely.

Re: LIVE - Champions League: Barcelona v Manchester United

Barcelona will be playing in their 17th European final, breaking the record of 16 they share with Real Madrid.

Barca have won 10 and lost six.

Wembley was the venue for both teams' first European Cup win - Man United in 1968 and Barcelona in 1992.

Re: LIVE - Champions League: Barcelona v Manchester United

Former Barcelona and Manchester United striker Henrik Larsson on Michael Carrick:

(From the telegraph)

"He was criticised in 2009 for giving the ball away when United lost the final against Barcelona but he has an incredible ability to keep bouncing back. He remains a class act and his ability to keep hold of the ball will be crucial. Possession will be so important at Wembley because Barcelona are the experts, but Carrick should help United get some control of the ball. He is a bit of an unsung hero really, people forget how much he has done and how much he has won now."
