'There is always a but with Man United success'


Michael Carrick was pleased his half-time chat with Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba played a significant role in their thrilling derby win at Manchester City last weekend.

"I expect you to be consistent in a certain level".

"So, if you ask me, am I expecting Paul now to be Man of the Match every week? No". Stability in the working week and for the last few weeks, I'm really happy with him'.

"When things go wrong, people don't think twice and have a go at us", the former Real Madrid coach told Sky Sports.

Pogba had put in a disappointing first half against the league leaders, but returned to the field a changed man, and scored two goals within three minutes to bring United level.

"We are a team that has beaten every other team in the Premier League - beaten every one of the top six".

Mourinho remains understandably cautious about talking up next season and, while expecting City to invest heavily this summer, he insists United will not spend recklessly to try to compete.

"We need the points to finish second. obviously to finish fourth, we need four or five points, but to finish second we need much more than that", Mourinho added.

"We are not going to do anything insane".

"We are just trying to improve a little bit more, to give sequence to it". If they lose, rival Manchester City will be crowned champions.

But with City's rise to dominance this season, a groundshare would add another dynamic to an already fierce rivalry which is arguably as relevant now as it ever has been. They have been the best team during the season and the distance of points at the end of the season will be the effect of that superiority that they showed.
