'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Carrick Left Disappointed

Michael Carrick feels United should have won yesterday's clash against Chelsea after taking the lead in the first half.

Carrick was the most impressive player of Manchester United as the Reds claimed a point against the Premiership holders. However, the former Tottenham midfielder is disappointed for not taking maximum points from the game.

'We're a little bit frustrated,' explained Carrick at the final whistle. 'We feel we should have won the game after going ahead, but we conceded a sloppy goal from a set-piece so we're pretty disappointed.

'We played well in the first half and going a goal up was a big moment for us; it gave us something to hold on to.

'But they came at us in the second half and played well. They didn't really create many chances - they had a couple of shots from distance - but unfortunately a sloppy set piece has cost us.'

Carrick certainly played his part as he won the ball from Lampard before Saha's goal. To be honest, I was absolutely delighted to see him giving such a performance. He received a lot of unfair criticism due to his massive price-tag but he's definitely starting to live up to the expectations as a lot of us were always sure he would be.

'As a midfielder part of my job is to get the tackles in and I feel I'm getting better at it,' Carrick told Sky Sports. 'To do it and be part of the goal was nice.'
