Michael Carrick has reflected on Manchester United’s “horrible” results this season.

The defending Premier League champions suffered successive 3-0 loss to bitter rivals Liverpool and Manchester City at Old Trafford last month.

It’s not pleasant, but if you want to take good times you have to be prepared for the bad times

United, who secured a 1-1 draw with Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final mid-week, are 17 points behind leaders Liverpool.

And 31-year-old midfielder Carrick revealed the torture which the Red Devils players have gone through this season after a series of disappointing losses.

“It’s horrible,” Carrick told the Daily Mail. “You go home after a bad result and you suffer more than most because it’s our responsibility if we have not performed and got the result.

“You take it to the next game. You constantly ask questions of yourself. You have to face the public on the school run or taking the kids somewhere.

“It’s not pleasant, but if you want to take good times you have to be prepared for the bad times.”

United face Norwich City at Carrow Road on Saturday.
