Michael Carrick opens up about disappointing results under Jose Mourinho

Michael Carrick believes Manchester United are not getting the results they deserve after their 1-1 draw against Arsenal.

There were high hopes for Jose Mourinho‘s side, especially after they started the season with three straight wins, but they have fallen to sixth in the Premier League after hitting a rough patch of form.

Man United were on the right track to claim all three points from Arsenal through Juan Mata‘s goal, but substitute Olivier Giroud equalised the lead in the 89 minute to earn Arsene Wenger’s men an unexpected 1-1 draw.

Speaking about the situation at Old Trafford, he claims United are not far from everything clicking into place.

“Any game you look to take positives from – you have to, you have to go away and take something,” he said.

“But it is a lot sort of easier to deal with a result like that when you know you’ve played well, you’ve done everything you can and you deserve to win.

“I think the problem is when you come away and it hasn’t gone to plan and you think we could have been so much better, we should have been so much better and there’s problems there we need to solve.

“I don’t really see problems we need to solve. I think, of course, the result aren’t (ideal) and that’s the major thing, but playing like that more often than not we are going to win games.

“I am sure that will happen between now and the end of the season.”

After their solid team performance, United deserved to leave Old Trafford with nothing less than all three points.

Arsenal only managed one attempt on target and Giroud’s late header meant United came to a third straight league draw at Old Trafford for the first time since 1992.
