Manchester United went top of the table at the weekend following their victory over West Brom and Manchester City’s defeat to Swansea.
Seven of United’s remaining ten games are against bottom half of the table opposition, starting with second from bottom Wolves at the weekend. They’ve lost nine of the fourteen games they’ve played at home this season but Michael Carrick says we can’t take any game for granted.
“There is no hiding the fact that it is nice to be top of the league,” said Carrick. “This is a big week for us but I think we’ll be saying that for the rest of the season. “Wolves has been a tough place to go over the last few years. It has been hard for us down there, so we are not taking anything for granted. We are top of the league at the moment but we still have to pick up enough points between now and the end.”
