"Some of the people we have, they have to be more consistent in their performance and we need more quality", said the manager in a press conference.
Yet Carrick, who will play his last league game for United against Watford on Sunday before retirement, said the historical rivalry between English football's two most successful clubs, makes it a more significant fixture in the United dressing room. In United's first game since legendary former manager Alex Ferguson had to have emergency surgery on a brain haemorrhage, the visiting fans showed their support to the 76-year-old Scot with persist chants of "we all love Alex Ferguson".
With United ending their campaign against West Ham and Watford - two teams in the bottom half of the table - they have the opportunity to end the season on a winning note.
'After I have a look at United I do not get pleasure from watching them'.
Save for a confrontation between Pogba and Mark Noble, for which West Ham's captain was lucky to stay on the pitch, Thursday lacked excitement. He's going to be even closer to me than he was as a player, so it's just an emotional moment because it's the end of the career of a fantastic player.
"I still think I'm just fortunate to have seen him train every day and having the best seat in the house, stood next to him passing the ball and seeing what he could do with it".
"I think he's going to be here next season", claimed Jose.
"We needed a point to finish second, they didn't need anything because they did the job last match at Leicester but they played to win".
Michael Carrick will start for a final time as a professional footballer and will deserve all the applause that comes his way after 676 games in club football, 463 of them at Manchester United. We expect the England global to start on Sunday, and we are backing him to score in the game.
