Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick says his winner against Galatasaray probably saved their goalkeeper being sent off!

Carrick showed commendable honesty and desire to hook home the only goal of the game despite being hauled down by goalkeeper Fernando Muslera, and the midfielder saw the funny side of his first Champions League goal in almost three years.

He laughed: "It's hard, you know, I don't get many so when the chance is there... obviously you can go down and stay down and there's a chance maybe of him getting sent off, but we've missed three penalties now so maybe taking the chance was the right one!"

Have your say
