Michael Carrick felt his new midfield colleagues Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini were good value for Manchester United's win at West Bromwich Albion.

Both players could play in their first United-Liverpool fixture this coming Sunday, introducing them to a rivalry like few others in the English game.

"Juan and Marouane both did really well against West Brom," said Carrick to manutd.com. "That's two league games in a row now in which they've both performed well - Palace and now West Brom. But while they did well individually, I thought collectively, as a team, we looked really dangerous going forward.

"The performance against West Brom was better than the one at Palace, so that's something we have to take forward into some big games in this important month."
