Carrick says Man United have eyes on top spot

15 December 2014, 12:57

London - Manchester United have set their sights on usurping Premier League leaders Chelsea after beating Liverpool 3-0, midfielder Michael Carrick told the club's in-house television channel on Monday.

United were languishing in 10th place after winning only three of their opening 10 league games under new coach Louis van Gaal, but a run of six consecutive victories has seen them climb the table to third place.

Sunday's success over Liverpool at Old Trafford took them back to within eight points of Chelsea and although Jose Mourinho's side remain favourites for the title, Carrick believes United have a chance.

"We are always looking at how we can get to the top," Carrick told MUTV. "All in all, we are in a pretty decent position at the moment.

"We need to stay up there, we need to stay in touch, then come Christmas and come January, as we've said for many years now, if we are up there challenging then we will give ourselves a great chance."

Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Robin van Persie scored the goals that gave United victory over Liverpool, while goalkeeper David de Gea was named man of the match thanks to a number of impressive saves.
