Mourinho: Matic and Fellaini in Best Form, Carrick and Herrera Need Patience

"Do you want to know the four?"

When asked what role Carrick still had to play at United, Mourinho compared his captain's situation to those of other members of his squad whose playing time has been limited, as reported by the Independent.

Fellaini started his first game of the season against former club Everton on Sunday and is highly regarded by manager Jose Mourinho. A combination of an old favorite and a new addition have forced some of United's most famous players to settle for a place on the bench more often than not. That could present 36-year-old Carrick with his first start of the season, with Mourinho expected to rest two players he believes are playing the best football of their careers. "I have never seen Matic play so well and I've never seen Fellaini play so well", the Red Devils' manager said.

"I can learn from Nemanja and from "Felly" [Marouane Fellaini], he has some abilities that we don't have in midfield".

Manchester United are now preparing for their League Cup clash against Burton on Wednesday night as they look to kick off the defence of their title.

In that 3-0 win over the Swiss champions, United lost Paul Pogba to a hamstring injury with Fellaini coming onto replace him, scoring the game's opening goal with an impressive performance earning him a starting role alongside the ever-present Matic against Everton.

Warm and dry until fall arrives on Friday
For Tuesday , expect patchy fog in some place before 10 a.m., then gradually becoming mostly sunny, with a high near 80. Fire conditions will be ripe throughout the much the state Tuesday afternoon with gusty winds and low humidity.

He added, "We gave Michael Carrick a contract because he's an important player".

"So he is in a team with these two guys who are playing absolutely phenomenally".

Squad depth has been one of the most discussed topics relating to Manchester United this season.

"My team mates make me a better player and I think I make them better players".

"Oh yes, serious because it's football, it's competition and we take it seriously", the United boss said. "I know the quality of the Championship division and I know if we don't take it seriously, we are going to lose".
