Carrick to lead United against Arsenal

Tuesday 30 November 2021 11:51

Manchester United have confirmed Michael Carrick will remain in caretaker charge for the Premier League game against Arsenal on Thursday.

Our former midfielder has overseen the 2-0 win at Villarreal and 1-1 draw with Chelsea since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's departure.

Ralf Rangnick was announced as interim manager on Monday but, while the club follows the regulatory process around a work visa, Carrick will continue at the helm.

Michael has communicated this to players and staff at Carrington in a busy week for the club. He will be holding the pre-match press conference at 13:30 GMT on Wednesday, which you can follow on our official club channels from then.

Preparation is continuing for the visit of the in-form Gunners, with the game live on Amazon Prime (for sign-up details visit here).

Following the clash with Arsenal (20:15 GMT), United welcome another London team to Old Trafford on Sunday in the shape of Crystal Palace.

The 14:00 GMT kick-off is not being shown live on television in the UK, but we will have full matchday coverage on MUTV, our Official App and ManUtd.com.
