Carrick: Mourinho knows what I can do


24 September, 2016

Although Michael Carrick and Ander Herrera both scored against Northampton and were impressive, Mourinho avoided fuelling speculation that they had helped their starting chances.

Arsenal host Reading while Hull travel to the south west to face Bristol City and there is an all-Premier League clash between Southampton and Sunderland.

"We got the win last night, we've got three home games coming up before the worldwide break and it's important we try to win all three of them and get our season back on track", said Rooney.

Regarding the intense scrutiny of his own form, he said: "Yeah, I think I've had that my whole career - a little bit more of late, I think, but that's football".

"Northampton fought and they tried to cause us problems which sometimes they did but it was a positive performance overall", he added.

After a promising start to the league season when they notched three victories on the trot, United faltered in their first major test of the season at home against city rivals Manchester City succumbing to a 2-1 defeat.

The players are understood to be concerned by Mourinho's public criticism and Wayne Rooney's form is of huge concern.

Rooney then saw a goal ruled out for offside, but Northampton gave United a scare when Kenji Gorre clipped the bar in the 38th minute and within four minutes the home side were level.

With the result still very much in doubt at 1-1, Mourinho replaced Memphis Depay with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Timothy Fosu Mensah with Rashford. Normally it's easier against ten men and we should have been playing against 10 men early in the second half.

Nonetheless, it wouldn't be long before they took the lead through a blunder from Smith.

Given that United are already six points back from league leaders City, the Old Trafford clash with the Foxes is nearly a must-win game.

The Belgium defender played for the first time since May but left the field and went straight down the tunnel shortly after Gylfi Sigurdsson's stoppage-time consolation goal for Swansea.

"We had a setback last week. but it's not going to finish off our season". We played tonight and had a good result'.
