Carrick played his part as United beat QPR 2-0 in West London on Saturday but the midfielder insists boss Sir Alex Ferguson will not allow the squad to relax.

"We've got a job to do and the manager said that we need to take it game to game and just win the next game if we can," he said.

"You can't look too far ahead because it can come back and bite you. We've got the experience around the place and obviously the manager sets the tone.

"I think you saw against QPR it was just about that game, getting the result and moving onto the next one."

"It's not always going to be pretty," he said, speaking to MUTV. "Sometimes you have to grind it out, work hard and make the most of the opportunities.

"That comes from experience as well and the manager picked an experienced side (at QPR), who would be able to cope with that.

"We played some good football at times when we had the chance, but other times it was about defending well and playing on the break.

"All in all, I think we can be really delighted with how the day went."
