2) Carrick to get a look in
Michael Carrick is United’s second most senior player in the squad, after Wayne Rooney. In the summer, he was handed a one year contract extension by Mourinho.
Carrick even started the Community Shield alongside Fellaini, but was hauled off at the hour mark. Since then, the veteran Englishman has not featured in the Premier League. He was unused substitute in mid-week.
Carrick’s inclusion however, depends on Mourinho playing a 4-3-3. With Schneiderlin failing to impress in mid-week, Mourinho could yet opt for the vastly experienced Englishman.
Carrick’s inclusion would also allow Pogba to chase the ball, rather than worry about the opposition number 10. As Scholes mentioned ,”Carrick would get the most out of Pogba”.
