Carrick: The work starts here

Michael Carrick insists there is no chance of Manchester United taking it easy in the group stages of the Champions League after last term's bitter disappointment.

United will be in Pot One for Thursday's draw, which in theory presents them with an easy passage into the knockout rounds. However, the same was also true last term, with even Sir Alex Ferguson accepting the Red Devils should have advanced, only to crumble in their final match in Basle and crash out of the competition before Christmas.

It is not a fate Carrick expects to be suffering again. He said: "We let ourselves down as a squad last season. We won't be taking our eye off the ball at all. We want to be in the latter stages and fighting for the trophy. But we know the work has to be done now. Hopefully we've learnt from last season and can have much better campaign."
