Football News

Surprising though it may be that Carrick has made this squad, he is nonetheless over 30 years old, and his solid performances throughout last season led to him making the PFA Player of the Year Shortlist and the PFA Team of the season (for the 2nd time). 

From his deep-lying holding position, Carrick totalled four assists but, generally his ability to spray balls all over the field led to many more chances which should have been converted. 

If he can link up well with Shinji Kagawa, Old Trafford will be in for a real treat in the coming season.
