All the attention was on Jose Mourinho’s return to his former club but it was the manager in the opposite dug-out who was celebrating after the game.
Antonio Conte’s side eased through Manchester United’s midfield and Fellaini, who has undergone huge criticism since signing for the club in September 2013, was once again one of the players deemed to be at fault.
The former Everton star has started seven league games this season compared to Carrick’s one substitute appearance against Leicester City in September.
Carrick has made 430 appearances for the club since joining in 2006 and is a popular figure among supporters given his consistency over the last decade.
