Manchester United fans react to outstanding midfield performance from maestro

Manchester United Football Club got one over on their fiercest of rivals in the form of Manchester City last night, thanks to a Juan Mata winner in the second half. Jose must’ve been more than pleased with the result more so than the performance as a whole, but some individual players shone through.

One of those lads who really put in a top drawer display was Michael Carrick. The midfield maestro has seen his minutes limited this campaign, but earned a first start in a bigger match last night and grasped that opportunity with both hands.

He controlled the midfield from minute one and didn’t give Manchester City a sniff. Defensively, he helped protect the back four and didn’t allow one shot on target for the duration of the game which was a real positive, and as per usual, he got United moving in the right direction.

As you’d imagine, the fans were loving it all over social media, and Michael Carrick came in for some rightly deserved praise.
