Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has told the ‘Inside United’ magazine that he can`t wait for his home debut, especially considering that it is against old club Tottenham Hotspur.

Injury knocked the former Spurs man out of the first league game at Old Trafford, and now the England midfielder is set to start against his former employer.

After such a quiet season start, Carrick will soon get enough action as United line-up Spurs, Celtic and then Arsenal in the coming week!

Carrick: ‘To face your old team-mates is a great experience – you always want to come out on top. And then Arsenal, which is always such a huge game for this club. I can’t wait.’

A hint perhaps as to why Carrick moved, he went on to mention that he was ‘gutted’ when Spurs missed out on Champions League, another reason (as if he didn’t have enough?) to leave the club.
