late-season collapse meant Manchester City nabbed the title in the dying seconds of the campaign.

Remarkably, since joining United in 2006, Michael has only lost out in a league title race by one point (to Chelsea in 2009/2010) and goal difference (to Manchester City in 2011/2012).

Carrick's calmness under pressure and pin-point passing has become integral to the present iteration of Manchester United. His contribution only sporadically extends to goalscoring – with occasionally spectacular results – but in his primary role of screening the defence, intercepting passes and probing against well-drilled opposing ranks, Carrick is one of the modern game's leading exponents.
