Man Utd playmaker Carrick not ready to talk up all Manchester FA Cup final

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick isn't ready to entertain the prospect of meeting Manchester City in the FA Cup final.

United's local rivals Manchester City are also competing for a place in the last four this weekend when they take on npower Championship outfit Reading at Eastlands on Sunday.

There is already talk about the prospect of a derby FA Cup final, but Carrick insists United, who are looking to bounce back from last weekend's 3-1 league defeat to Liverpool, are focusing on one game at a time.

"I can understand the fans getting excited about the possibility but we haven't even thought about the chances of an all Manchester final game at Wembley yet," Carrick said.

"We can't look beyond this one on Saturday yet because it is so huge. We have been so busy leading up to this one that even Arsenal hadn't been mentioned prior to Liverpool.

"It really is a game-by-game time of the season and that is the only way you can tackle a run-in."
