Former Manchester United midfielder and current assistant manager Michael Carrick has insisted that the Red Devils can still end the season on a bright note as talks continue to hot up that they have fallen behind in the title race against the noisy neighbors Manchester City. United started the season brightly and looked like they were going to go toe-to-toe with City for the Premier League title but have had major setbacks in the sense that they have drawn games that they should have easily won.
Former Manchester United midfielder who is now one assistant coach to manager Olé Gunnar Solskjær has explained that as long as the Norwegian manager is still the boss at Old Trafford, the team will keep playing attacking football. The Red Devils have come under a lot of criticisms in recent weeks for the way they concede lots of goals, with their defence coming under question in recent weeks.
Much of the criticism on their defensive backline has come as a result of the fact that no other team currently in the top ten has conceded more goals than the Red Devils so far this season. Many people have suggested that they start focusing on the defensive aspect of their game and play a bit more defensively so they would create a balance both in attack and at the back.
