The Reds beat Spurs 3-1 in the FA Cup on Sunday, and travel to White Hart Lane this weekend aiming to make it five straight wins in 2008 whilst also retaining the Premier League's top spot. For Carrick, the trip brings back fond memories of a ground he called home for two seasons before moving to Old Trafford in 2006.

“They’ve been through a rough patch, but they were always going to find their way with the players they have. They have some real talent, and Juande Ramos has turned their results around. It was good to see Spurs reach the Carling Cup final and hopefully they can go on and win it. It would be nice to see them do that. But in terms of Saturday’s game, for me, it’s just another match that we have to win."

Carrick believes Spurs have four key players United must try to contain. He added: “Jermaine Jenas gets forward and scores goals, Robbie Keane’s playing as well as ever, Aaron Lennon’s very dangerous on the wing and then there’s that man Dimitar Berbatov. Spurs can hit you all over the park. We'll have to be on our toes.”
