Carrick happy with United display

Michael Carrick has defended Manchester United’s tactics in the 0-0 draw at Arsenal after they were accused of being negative.

• Delaney: Stagnation at the Emirates
• Payne: United, Arsenal share restorative draw

The midfielder believes United are unfairly criticised and that the side worked cohesively to prevent Arsenal from having many chances.

Robin van Persie had two opportunities to win the game, with a second-minute shot and a 79th-minute header that Wojciech Szczesny tipped on to the bar, but those were United’s only efforts on target at the Emirates Stadium.

Carrick feels they deserve praise for their efforts, telling MUTV: “We get stick all the time anyway but we're used to it. I thought we did a good job, not just us in midfield but as a unit, really.

“From the front, Robin and Wayne [Rooney] took up good positions and helped us out, while we helped the defenders out from midfield. We limited their space around the box and they didn't create many chances.

"You could see towards the end their fans were getting frustrated and that's when I thought that maybe we might nick a goal and make it a fantastic night.

“The performance was good. I thought we looked really strong as a team and good defensively considering the attacking options that Arsenal have. We can be pleased with our general performance as a team but it would have been nice to have pinched it."

The result left United 11 points behind fourth-placed Liverpool, who triumphed 3-2 at Fulham, and left Carrick’s midfield partner Tom Cleverley believing they cannot afford to drop any more points.

He told MUTV: “We need to win every game from now on and Liverpool getting a last-minute winner is disappointing for us. Our result isn’t the worst in the world but we need to start winning games fast.”
