The teen is blazing the publicity trail after his brace on debut at Sunderland.
"It is a lot for a young lad to take to come in like that. The attention he is going to get now will be a lot," Carrick told the Manchester Evening News.
"He is young, he is going to learn along the way and learn fast. I am sure he will be fine.
"Young lads can come in and change. Their life can change overnight and the expectations and pressures change. There are more responsibilities. But he is at the right place and he has a good attitude. He is going to stay on the right lines.
"I and the other experienced players are there to set an example and do the right things."
