Manchester United have confirmed that Michael Carrick will be out of action for four to six weeks with an Achilles injury.

Carrick has been struggling with a niggling problem for some time, but cam through 90 minutes in Sunday's 1-0 victory over Arsenal at Old Trafford.

Carrick said: "I have been carrying the injury for a few weeks now. I was a bit patched up to play today.

"I got through it but it doesn't look too good."

The 32-year-old playmaker has been a key player for United in recent years and has appeared in 15 of their last 18 matches so far this season.
