United's next two outings will see them turn their attention to knockout football, with a midweek showdown with Sevilla in the Champions League set to be followed by an FA Cup quarter-final clash with Brighton.
But all that good feeling generated inside Old Trafford at the weekend will mean nothing if the Reds fail to win tonight, according to manager Jose Mourinho. "It's something you have to accept", Carrick said. So you have to keep going. "I don't know. We don't know yet, but he (Pogba) trained a little bit after you left". It was the kind of game that United would have dropped points in earlier in the season.
"It's a very special game tomorrow night for Seville".
Carrick knows better than anyone in the squad about the high standards demanded at Old Trafford.
"It's a big comp, it would be the first time in 60 years for us to get through to this stage".
Midfielder Michael Carrick sat alongside Mourinho in the news conference and the former England global confirmed he will end his playing career at the end of the season.

The Dane needed two hours and 17 minutes to get past the world No.49 Belarusian. "It wasn't very easy, obviously", she said . Venus's victory also comes 17 years after an ugly booing incident led to a 14-year boycott of the tournament by the sisters.
"So that's pretty much where I'm at, which is fine". We're still talking about it, to be honest, so there's nothing totally confirmed as yet. At least I could decide and not be forced because of that, so I was determined to get back fit.
"But, yeah, it's looking likely".
The 24-year-old midfielder - who surprisingly started the goalless first leg on the bench in Spain - was injured on the eve of the Liverpool clash and was conspicuous by his absence from the section of training open to the media on Monday.
Meanwhile, compatriot Pogba had suffered a deep gash on his leg after a challenge from Scott McTominay in training prior to the Reds game, and it appears that he has not fully recovered from the incident with Mourinho unsure over his participation.
Paul Pogba remains a doubt for United, after missing the win over Liverpool, while Ander Herrera, Marcos Rojo, and Phil Jones remain sidelined.
