Michael Carrick answers the reporters regarding speculation on Ralf Rangnick who is likely to be appointed as the New Interim Manager for Manchester United.

“To be honest, from my point of view, not a lot really. You know, speculation and reports are speculation and reports. As I’m sitting here now, I’m preparing the team for the game, my head’s on the game, I haven’t got any more news to share with you on that front. I’m just looking forward to getting down to London and playing against Chelsea.”

Chelsea vs Manchester United: Carrick discusses the huge upcoming game against League leaders Chelsea: “It was a big boost for us, of course, it was, it was a much-needed win for a lot of reason, mainly, first and foremost, for the players to have that feeling again and get that little bit of confidence back, that little bit of belief, which, for sure, we lost. It’s another massive game for us, Tuesday was a huge game, but it’s another massive game. These are the games you’ve got to enjoy, embrace putting yourself in these positions, and test yourself against a team that’s playing very well, very well. Whatever individuals are on the pitch for them, in recent times, they’ve looked dangerous, they’ve looked a good team and obviously had some really terrific results. So it’ll be a test for us and I’m looking forward to it.”

Chelsea vs Manchester United: He speaks about Romelu Lukaku who he played with before coaching him who is now at Chelsea: “That feels like a long time ago already, when Rom was here and left. He’s gone to Italy and done very well and had a good start at Chelsea. I know he’s been unfortunate with picking up the injury but came back the other night and was involved. It’ll be good to see Rom again. He’s obviously a terrific footballer, Rom, he’s scored goals pretty much wherever he’s been, so it’s pretty obvious what he brings and how dangerous he could be. If Rom plays, we’re well aware of what he brings and we’ll be ready for him.”

Team News ahead of Chelsea clash with injury updates on Luke Shaw and Fred:
“Yeah, we got two or three different little issues that we’re waiting to see how the boys come through. Of course, it’s never ideal, you want a full squad to pick from, a full quota of players. There is one or two that we’re kind of waiting on. Luke took a bang on the head, obviously, he was concussed 2-3 weeks ago and took a bang against Watford, so we’re assessing him during the week and we’ll make a call on how he is. Fred took a knock the other night and he twisted his ankle. He managed to carry on, which is pretty incredible, to be honest, and see the game out and ended up playing a big part in winning the game for us.

Chelsea vs Manchester United: Donny Van de Beek’s best position at Manchester United following his start at Villareal:
“I think Donny’s one of those players where because he’s so flexible, he can play different positions. He’s done the same for Ajax before he came here, so I think he’s used to that, and he’s done that for Holland as well. Variety can be a real strength. We’ve got ideas where we think Donny is most suited but, as I said, actually he’s so flexible and so adaptable that the two or three positions in and around midfield. But being so flexible is a real strength and a credit to what he can be for the team.”

Carrick shares his thoughts on Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea and their strengths:
“You’ve got to be hugely impressed by the way they go about things. Obviously, I’ve watched quite a bit of them. Super intense, well-organised, really good movement across our backline, their front line, and very good at connecting with the midfield, with the back three-building out and connecting in midfield. The wing-backs are really aggressive and test your backline and stretch you across the pitch. They’ve got a really good balance going at the moment, confidence is high and you can see that. They’ve had some really terrific results and so they’re on a high and I’m well aware of the challenges we face but, you know, as I said before, I’m looking forward to it because it’s a big test and a big challenge but we feel we can go there and get a good result, no doubt. We have to believe that.”
