Michael Carrick has his say on Henrikh Mkhitaryan after Manchester United's 1-0 win over Tottenham on Sunday

Michael Carrick admitted that he is hoping that Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s injury is not too serious after the midfielder was forced off in the second half of Manchester United’s 1-0 win over Tottenham.

The Armenia international has been in good form in recent weeks and he continued his good run by scoring the opener for United in the first half against Spurs to bag his first Premier League goal.

However, the playmaker was forced off late on after picking up what seemed to be an ankle injury at Old Trafford.

Mkhitaryan was named as the man of the match after another impressive display.

And Carrick admitted that he is hoping that the midfielder’s injury is not too serious.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Carrick said: “Henrikh Mkhitaryan is so talented, clever, such a nice lad and I just hope his injury is not too bad.”

He continued: “It was a test for us. You can look at the table and think there is a long way to catch up, Tottenham are a good team but we showed good character.

“We have said it for a number weeks that it’ll turn, Sometimes you have to just find a win from somewhere.

“There’s still a lot to come from us.”
