Michael Carrick’s brilliant Man United defensive performance v Crystal Palace (10 interceptions)

How is it that Michael Carrick is not an England regular?

Despite having played more than 200 games for Manchester United and becoming one of the first names on the team sheets at Old Trafford, Carrick has only collected 29 caps for the Three Lions.

The Manchester United central midfielder had another excellent outing last weekend at Old Trafford for the visit of Crystal Palace.

Carrick put in a fine performance against the Eagles with a 75% pass completion rate, a brilliant Zidane-turn, and 10 interceptions against Ian Holloway’s men.
