The Manchester United midfielder played the full 90-minutes over their 1-0 win over Arsenal on Sunday, but it was his first game back after missing the previous three with an Achilles problem.

However, he was limping badly as he left the stadium on Sunday and it seems highly unlikely he will feature in the first two matches of England's build-up to next summer's World Cup finals in Brazil.

"I have been carrying the injury for a few weeks now," he said.

"I was a bit patched up to play today.

"I got through it but it doesn't look too good."

Six pointer

Carrick, though, was in no doubt how much the win over Arsenal meant to United - admitting it was like a 'six pointer'.

"It was a big game, the amount of points we were behind, it was the old school six-pointer and we were well aware of that before the game," he told Sky Sports.

"We showed how much we wanted it and we got the lead and then tried to sit back and counter attack, we knew they were going to have a lot of the ball and we knew we would have to be patient and defend well.

"It is not the first time we have been written off, and we pride ourselves on our form over the season and we set high standards and today was something close to it.

"We have stayed patient and we haven't been getting down on ourselves, we know how much of the season is left. It is a good day, but it is not going to make the season."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
