United will achieve an all-time Premier League record haul of 96 points if they win their last four league matches. Many will have you believe that the Red Devils' achievement is born out of a poor challenge from the rest.
But Carrick said: "It is strange, every time we have won it, people say it has always been because other teams have let themselves down.
"But you have to get the points to win it. I have been here seven years, twice we have lost it, and we have then been written off massively but we have come back and won it again."
