On Sunday evening, Michael Carrick took charge of Manchester United's first Premier League game as caretaker manager, and his team earned a critical point against the league leaders.

After a corner, Aaron Wan-Bissaka was adjudged to have kicked Thiago Silva, however Carrick disagreed with Anthony Taylor's judgement in his post-match interview.

“I don’t think it was a penalty,” he told Sky Sports after the game, via Football Daily. “They’ve obviously had a lot of play and they’ve had shots. David’s had probably two saves, which I kind of knew before the game that at some he’s gonna have to make one or two for us.

“But other than that, I felt quite comfortable in the game, I have to say. Of course, we want to be better in terms of having the ball and possession.

“I’m not carried away, that was a fantastic all-around performance but I thought we defended ever so well. I thought the attitude was absolute top from the boys, putting bodies on the line when we had to.

“Sticking together, working back and tracking back. We’ve obviously got to do the other side a little bit better but I can’t fault the boys one bit from today.”
