Manchester United fans have urged Jose Mourinho to play Michael Carrick alongside Paul Pogba after his impressive performance against Northampton.

The 35-year-old made his first start for Man United since the Community Shield and completely controlled the game from the centre of the park.

His incredible passes helped Mourinho’s side get into plenty of attacking positions before he scored a screamer from the edge of the area.

Here’s what fans on social media had to say about his performance.

With Paul Pogba struggling since his world record move to Old Trafford, Man United fans have urged the Portuguese boss to play him alongside Carrick for guidance.

Scholes has continuously backed Carrick to get the best out of Poba and Mourinho finally decided to give the midfielder a run out at Sixfields Stadium.

Scoring goals won’t be the reason Carrick is introduced back into the side, as he has much more to offer, and his persuasive Man of the Match showing may have rewarded him with a chance for Saturday’s game against Leicester.
