Manchester United are struggling to remain on top for 90 minutes at the moment, which was addressed on RoM after our 1-1 draw with Everton.
The general consensus was the reason behind our dropped points was we’re missing the creativity and stability that the likes of Paul Scholes, Michael Carrick and Owen Hargreaves can provide us with.
So, we can breathe a sight of relief ahead of tomorrow night’s match against West Ham, with former Irons player, Carrick, in the squad.
So far this season, Carrick has played just 70 minutes of football due to an ankle injury, meaning we have had a rather makeshift midfield so far this season. Carrick, like Scholes, is a modest player who gets his head down and gets on with the job. We have certainly missed his through balls and composure in the centre of the park.
Our available squad for tomorrow is: Van der Sar, Kuszczak, Foster, Brown, Neville, Rafael, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evans, Evra, O’Shea, Carrick, Ronaldo, Park, Fletcher, Anderson, Giggs, Nani, Rooney, Berbatov, Tevez.
