Carrick warns against complacency

Published Add your comment

Michael Carrick has admitted Manchester United cannot afford to become complacent even though they emerged from their tough run of Barclays Premier League fixtures in far better shape than many people imagined.

Results could not have gone much better for Sir Alex Ferguson's men recently, with wins over Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham accompanying that thrilling draw at Chelsea when they fought their way back from three goals down.

"We are satisfied with the situation we are in," said the midfielder ahead of Sunday's game against West Brom. "But just because we have come through a tough two months doesn't mean we will sail through the next two nicely. We are not getting carried away and we are not taking anything for granted. We know how quickly it can come back and bite us."
