Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville says that Manchester United certainly need Michael Carrick back as soon as possible.
The England international has been a major reason behind the form revival seen under Louis van Gaal in 2015. However, two back-to-back defeats – against Chelsea and Everton – have managed to put the club back in the race for the top four. They could have extended their lead over Liverpool to a healthy seven points, but as it is the Reds can reduce it to just four with four games remaining. The defeats has come at a time when Carrick has been absent from the team.
