Man Utd midfielder Carrick: We are in the best form of our season

He told MUTV: “We’re playing some great stuff. We’re back to top form after a few weeks where we weren’t so good. We’ve kept on winning, which is the key.

“Whether we’ve played well or badly in the next few games, as long as we’re winning we’ll get the job done.

“We were playing so well, and when you’re playing like that you don’t want opportunities to slip by. So we were really determined to get three points and I think that showed the way we played second half.

“He was on fire, Brad [Friedel], and sometimes you think ‘is this their day?’. But we stuck at it and kept playing the way we can play. We didn’t get frustrated and start lumping it, we kept passing it, creating chances and thankfully they went in.”
