Michael Carrick Still Hopeful Of Top 4 Finish – Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has revealed that he is still hopeful of a 4th placed finish.
United dropped crucial points at home to Leicester City on Sunday, and are now 4 points behind 4th placed Manchester City, albeit with a game in hand.
“We were certainly looking to win the game. It was an opportunity for us to build on what we had gathered over the last few weeks, so we’re disappointed with a draw,” he said.
“Of course there’s all to play for. We will keep going. We have got the games left. We will just look to the next game now and try to win that. That’s the only thing we can control and that is what we have got to focus on.
“I thought we came out very well and put them under a lot of pressure and caused them a lot of problems. We got a goal ahead and then their goal came out of nowhere. We are disappointed with that.”
United’s cause was helped by City’s 4-2 defeat at Southampton, and will be particularly praying for them to drop more points as they face Real Madrid in Spain on Wednesday and Arsenal at the weekend.
