    Superb again. Can't think of many, if any, midfielders getting the better of Carrick this season.

    Dembele was very quiet yesterday. I didn't see the loss to Spurs at OT earlier in the season, what was he like that day?

    Apart from that, no one I can think of either. Shame we had to play him at CB v Everton, things might have been different.

    Wow southampton pushed him last night. At fault for the goal, a few stray passes and losing the ball on a few occasions. An off night.

    Yeah, off game for Carrick. He was okay in fulfilling his defensive duties, but was poor in possession. He wasn't helped by either midfield partner. Anderson was poor and Jones' positional awareness and passing/ball retention are weaker points.

    Carrick has pulled out of England's squad to face Brazil due to injury.

    Like Jones, probably another who is 'injured'. Everton home, Real and QPR away next week. Will probably play all 3.

    Hope that is the case.

    Thought Carrick was excellent from what I saw on Saturday, played a few excellent balls through the middle that were failed to be capitalized on. It's an area of his game that we have seen a lot more this season, he's becoming more of a play maker now that Scholes isn't featuring as much.

    Quietly brilliant. Hope he is rested next week against Norwich and saved for Madrid.

    Great to hear the fans chanting about him today. Away fans class again. Thought Carrick struggled for bits of the game with Giggs wandering a bit he was left with no one to pass to and had to do a lot of work on his own. That's not to say Giggs didn't play well, he did, but positionally he's not great for a CM.

    Some of us have been waiting years for a Carrick song. Really happy it's finally happened. Not sure about the chant itself but just glad people are finally recognising his contribution. I don't think he's playing any better than he did last season though really. Defensively excellent yesterday, thought his passing was a bit off perhaps because of Giggs' positioning. Seemed a bit of a weird time for the chant to be brought up. Not complaining though.

    With Jones potentially out of the Real Madrid game, he'll have some extra duties and he'll need to be on top of his game.

    Outstanding. One of the best midfield performances I've seen. Passing was on a different level.

    It's hard to believe it's not Scholes!

    Defensively brilliant last night. Everytime he did something in defence, the song was sung. Finally appreciated.

    Outstanding. The turn moments before full time was utterly classy. So easy for him today.

    Think it said a lot with Monday's game on the horizon, that he played today, so key. Really need a strong backup to him.

    Another for the Carrick wank bank. haha. This did make me smile though. Carrick is full of confidence right now, top of his game, fans singing his name.

    Looked tired in the second half. Understandable.

    Our lack of depth in midfield has also cost us today along with other things, Carrick should have been rested on Saturday but we were unable to as we don't have the backup for him. He's played 270 mins since Tuesday. Needs addressing in the summer, have a feeling we may stick with what we have and put faith in Fletcher. Depends how much is in the 'kitty' I suppose.

    It has needed addressing for a couple of years. It would be nothing short of disgraceful if we go with what we have got next season.
