Who could Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho start against Leicester City?
Red Devils boss Mourinho said: “Look, let’s be honest, I see many positive things in Carrick but I cannot go to his identity cards and delete five years.
“He is not 35, he is not 30.”
Wenger is keen to resolve his midfield crisis with Granit Xhaka failing to live up to his £34million price tag so far and Santi Cazorla still facing a lengthy spell on the sideline through injury.
