The Geordie was pleased to defeat Wigan Athletic at Wembley.
â€śEvery game is important, thatâ€™s how it is here,â€ť Carrick told MUTV. â€śWeâ€™ve had an up and down pre-season, itâ€™s been well documented, but sometimes you canâ€™t read too much into that. We have put the work into the training field, we have all had enough games now and I think it showed today.
â€śIt was a better team performance all around. We looked well defensively and obviously we scored two goals, so it was a decent performance and a good day. We can move on to next week now.â€ť
