Carrick on standby for defensive duty?

Michael Carrick is hoping that he will not be forced into action as an emergency defender following a spate of injuries at Old Trafford.

Centre-backs Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic both missed United's 2-1 win over Marseille on Tuesday, while Rafael da Silva and John O'Shea limped out of the action.

Jonny Evans is also an injury doubt for the weekend clash with Bolton Wanderers, meaning that Carrick, usually a midfielder, could be pushed into the backline. He operated as a makeshift defender last season against Fulham at Craven Cottage - a match that United lost 3-0.

"[Playing in defence] did get a mention in the changing room," Carrick told MUTV. "I said to [assistant] Mike Phelan 'I don't fancy that again'.

"It is never nice to get the injuries of course. It is disappointing when you pick up a number in a similar position. But I don't think we are that desperate yet and hopefully I won't be called upon."

Meanwhile, United will be without goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard for around five weeks after he had surgery on a knee injury. Ben Amos has been recalled from his loan spell at Oldham Athletic as cover.
