United lost 2-1 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night and face Liverpool on Sunday.
“At the moment we feel pretty down, but we can move on quickly. We have to,” the midfielder told MUTV.
“We’re used to doing that and we’re normally good at that, so hopefully we can bounce back again.
“We have to get rid of this game, forget about it and move on. It’s obviously a huge game on Sunday and we’ll be ready for that. We have to be.
“That’s the nature of the beast. We move on and we take a lot of positives from tonight and look to put things right that didn’t go well. We’ll be ready.”
“It is disappointing, especially after the first half and the way we played,” Carrick reflected on the result against Chelsea.
“We were in control. Second half we weren’t as quick and decisive in our passing as we were in the first half, but we still felt quite comfortable and I still thought we might score again.
“Some decisions didn’t go our way and we’re on the end of a defeat, which is very hard to take.
“That type of decision plays a huge part in the game. Big decisions you’ve got to get right, especially in a game of this importance, so we’re disappointed.
“What can I say apart from that? It’s hard to take.”
