Michael Carrick says Manchester United can get back to winning ways following their dramatic comeback against Stoke City.

David Moyes has struggled since taking the reigns at Old Trafford and saw his Manchester United team fall eight points behind leaders Arsenal, losing three of the opening eight Premier League games.

It looked like it was going to worse for Moyes as Stoke went in to the final 15 minutes with a 2-1 lead over the defending Premier  League champions.

However, two goals in two minutes from Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez sealed a dramatic comeback and Carrick believes the win can prove to be a turning point in United's season.

“We kept going and believing we’d get there and we did,” Carrick told the Daily Mirror. “We left it late, but we’ve proved over the years it sometimes does take until the last few minutes to score and win the game.

Carrick, who has won five Premier League titles with Manchester United, admitted that the Red Devils had no other choice but to win on Saturday and hailed the spirit of this side.

He now wants Manchester United to go back to normality and start winning every game.

“It’s the character we have," he continued. "It was a vital game to win. We didn’t really have a choice, we had to find a way to win. We kept going and believing, and ended up finding that win.

“We have to kick on and get back to our normal selves. We’ve still got a way to go, we’re not kidding ourselves, we’ve had a couple of good results but by no means are we at our best – there’s more to come but we’re not in bad shape.”

Manchester United next face Norwich City in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup at Old Trafford.
