Man Utd’s Carrick: We can handle the busy schedule

Carrick said: “The fixture list is a bit congested now and we are going to have to deal with it. But if we are going to win things then we have to go through this. Right now we are facing a lot of games of such huge importance.

“I am sure we have the strength in depth to do that despite the injury situation at the moment. We have a good squad and other lads can come in to show how good they are. I think this game showed the character in the team in the way we came back.

“I thought we actually played better than we have done in recent weeks.

“You have spells in the season when you don’t play great stuff.

“But we have shown over the past few weeks that we can grind results out. The team spirit is unbelievable at the minute.”
