Carrick in disbelief at Man Utd cracker - ’Where did that come from?’

Michael Carrick admitted he could not believe he scored such a lovely goal for Manchester United on Wednesday night.

The veteran midfielder curled home a delightful effort in the 17th minute of United's eventual 3-1 win over Northampton Town in the third round of the EFL Cup.

Wayne Rooney's free-kick from inside the area rebounded into the path of Carrick who hit a first-time effort beyond Cobblers keeper Adam Smith, which surprised even himself.
