Carrick ‘doesn’t see problems Manchester United need to solve’

Michael Carrick believes Manchester United are not getting the results their performances deserve after another frustrating deserve.

Much was expected of Jose Mourinho’s men after starting the season with three straight wins, yet they have won just two of the subsequent nine Premier League matches.

The latest frustration came on Saturday lunchtime, when Juan Mata deservedly gave the hosts a lead that substitute Olivier Giroud cancelled out in the 89th minute to earn Arsenal a fortuitous 1-1 draw.

It was the Gunners’ only attempt on target and meant United stuttered to a third straight league draw on home turf for the first time since 1992, having wasted the chance to win all of those matches.

Mourinho claims his side are the unluckiest in the league and Carrick, captaining the side with Wayne Rooney starting on the bench, believes United are not far off from things turning.

“Any game you look to take positives from – you have to, you have to go away and take something,” the midfielder told MUTV.

“But it is a lot sort of easier to deal with a result like that when you know you’ve played well, you’ve done everything you can and you deserve to win.

“I think the problem is when you come away and it hasn’t gone to plan and you think we could have been so much better, we should have been so much better and there’s problems there we need to solve.

“I don’t really see problems we need to solve. I think, of course, the result aren’t (ideal) and that’s the major thing, but playing like that more often than not we are going to win games.

“I am sure that will happen between now and the end of the season.”
