Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick isn't panicking over their slow start to the season.

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick isn't panicking over their slow start to the season.

The champions have already played Chelsea and Liverpool and now it is Manchester City they face in a white-hot showdown for bragging rights in the city.

But playmaker Carrick says: “That’s something I don’t tend to think about too much.

“You have to play them and that’s the way it has fallen for us.

“We just look forward to the next game – ­regardless of who we are facing.”
