MANU VS ARS: 2 Terrible Selection Mistakes Carrick Made In The Starting Eleven Of Today's Match

Manchester United is looking to return back to winning ways after a tight draw with current leaders Chelsea. The red devils are well aware that anything other than a win will compound their poor start to the season.

Manchester United will host Arsenal at Old Trafford. Both Carrick and his players are aware that obtaining a victory will be difficult, especially given the Arsenal's recent form.

However, looking at Manchester United's official lineup, I was able to identify two tactical errors made by Carrick in the starting lineup for tonight's game.

1. He portrayed Ronaldo:

No disrespect to Ronaldo's reputation, but matchups like this don't require guys who can't contribute defensively. C Ronaldo is an excellent finisher, but he lacks defensive ability. Playing Ronaldo against a club like Arsenal is not a good idea.

2. Played Maguire ahead of Eric Baily:

After his performance against Chelsea, I believe Eric Baily has demonstrated that he is one of Manchester United's top defenders. Given Maguire's lack of form this season, I believe Baily should have started the game ahead of Maguire.
