Four questions Mourinho must answer ahead of Burnley clash
Should Carrick remain in the starting XI?
The 35-year-old shares a similarly positive record with Juan Mata.
Whenever the English midfielder starts, United tend to win.
The victory in the Manchester Derby last night made it five out of five for Carrick. Some might argue the opposition has been less competitive in the games Carrick has started but he is clearly a calming figure in front of the back four.
United were rattled last Sunday away at Chelsea as Pogba and Herrera lacked the composure to deal with the relentlessness of the Blues’ attacks.
Carrick, on the other hand, is well-proven and during the EFL Cup win even displayed that he has the legs to keep up with Sergio Aguero! Certainly food for thought for Mourinho.
