While Tuesday's defeat at Chelsea is still a fresh wound for Michael Carrick and his colleagues, the midfielder says it will heal in time for Sunday's clash with Liverpool.
The Reds' title charge was hindered by a controversial defeat at Stamford Bridge, but Carrick insists the league leaders are focused on returning to winning ways at Anfield.
"At the moment we feel pretty down, but we can move on quickly. We have to," the midfielder told MUTV. "We're used to doing that and we're usually good at it; hopefully we bounce back again. We have to forget it and move on. It's a huge game on Sunday and we'll be ready for it. We take positives from the game and look to put things right that didn't go well."
United controlled most of the first half against the reigning champions, who then hit back after the break. "It's disappointing, especially after the way we played in the first half," said Carrick. "We were in control. Second half we weren't as quick and decisive in our passing, but we still felt quite comfortable and I thought we might score again."
"Some decisions didn't go our way and we're on the end of a defeat, which is very hard to take. Big decisions play a huge part in games. You've got to get them right, especially in a game of this importance, so we're disappointed. What can I say apart from that? It's hard to take."
