It seems to me now that every day I wake up we are never more than two days away from the last game United played or the next one. It is a ridiculous situation to be in. They are currently in the middle of having to play 5 games in 14 days! But Micheal Carrick says their season schedule has been "relentless" - and he wouldn't have it anyother way.
"It is relentless, we are on course to play the most number of games we could possibly play in one season. That is the aim. There is a game every three or four days now and they are all going to mean so much. That is what you want. It is great to be part of it. We are in a good position. Fingers crossed we will succeed."
Carrick is wary of an in-form Everton side ahead of Sunday's FA Cup clash, with the likely absence of former United striker Louis Saha hardly making a dent in their confidence given the number of times they have won matches with no forwards at all this term.
"It will be a tough game, Everton have improved an awful lot as the season has gone on. They have had injuries, especially at centre-forward, and proved they can cope."
