Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has admitted that the club is performing horribly after they suffered their third consecutive defeat in the premier league against Stoke City.
Former Barcelona forward Bojan Krkic and Marko Arnautovic scored in the Potters 2-0 win which extended the Red Devils current run to four defeats in a row in all competitions – their worst such sequence in a single season since 1961.
“Obviously it was a tough game, we’ve given ourselves too much to do again. To start like we did against Stoke, go two down, with the situation we’re in at the minute, it’s tough,” he told Sky Sports.
“It’s a horrible run, a horrible feeling, it hurts a lot. What else can I say? It’s hard to take. We’re not playing well enough as a team, as a squad, and do a lot better. It’s Manchester United we’re playing for, it’s a special club.
“When you’re on a bad run, it’s tough. It’s hard to take. I look at myself first of all, see what I can do better. Everyone’s got to do that.
“You can single anyone out in this situation as a club, a group of players, staff, manager – we have to stick together an football matches.
“We’ve all got to take responsibility for that. We have to work hard, stick together and keep believing that it’ll turn for us. It’s got to come the next game.”
