Michael Carrick is delighted with Manchester United’s 2-0 win over West Ham United. The veteran midfielder started his eighth game of the season this term. The 35-year-old has displayed some scintillating football recently and has also earned praises from Jose Mourinho who has been using the midfielder quite frequently despite his age.
The midfielder was given a one-year contract extension at the start of the season and with his current form, he is expected to be offered another contract extension.
United defeated West Ham United 2-0 and extended their unbeaten run to six matches in the Premier League.
Carrick said, “In the first-half we weren’t where we wanted to be in terms of keeping possession and creating chances.
“We just looked less sharp after only playing on Saturday, but credit should also go to them as they only played on Saturday as well and had to play with 10 men.
“But we are delighted that we saw the game out. We have kept our run going and confidence is high, which makes such a massive difference in games like this because we feel as if we can see that finishing line and it ultimately drove us over the line to give us the three points.”
