Michael Carrick admits revenge may be Arsenal's prime motivation when they face Manchester United on Sunday.

The Barclays Premier League giants meet at the Emirates Stadium for the first time since that astonishing 8-2 triumph for United in August. And the sheer magnitude of that scoreline may be a factor in the Gunners' approach.

"Maybe," said Carrick when asked if Arsenal would be out for revenge in an exclusive interview on the Betfair Facebook page. "They didn't start the season too well but they are still up there. Arsenal against Manchester United is always a massive game. They will want to win and so will we."
