Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick admits their six-goal thriller with FC Basle has put them on the back foot in their Champions League campaign.

United need maximum points from a double header against Otelul to return to the position they would expect to be in after four games. At best, they have made life difficult for themselves.

Carrick said: "It's not the end of the world but it's not ideal. We've given ourselves a lot of hard work but we're capable of doing it. We were looking to win those two Galati games anyway."
