Despite Manchester United’s shaky start to the season, Michael Carrick’s return to the side may just be the missing piece in Louis van Gaal’s plans and with stats like these, there’s no denying it.
If United lack a centre-back, Carrick can step in, if they somehow lack a midfielder, he once again can easily step up.
If they need both positions to be filled during the course of the same game, the English midfielder can do that as well.
The amazing statistics below show that Carrick’s control in the middle of the park could actually reveal that he is the best holding midfielder in the Premier League!
