Carrick: "It is a terrible way to finish the week."

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has lamented United's form in the past three games.

Louis van Gaal’s side played out a goalless draw against West Ham, lost out to Wolfsburg in the Champions League on Tuesday, and lost to Bournemouth on Saturday to end the week in a terrible manner.

"We are bitterly disappointed and it is a terrible way to finish the week," Carrick told MUTV, reports. "We wanted to bounce back today. We have left ourselves short again, the set-pieces have killed us. We had chances and they had chances but it is about the result and we haven’t got the result, so it’s the end to a very disappointing week."

The England international refused to blame United's injury crisis for the defeat. They had 8 players injured ahead of the game.

"I could say excuses but you get injuries and you have to deal with them," he said. "That is why we have got the squad and that is why we are the club we are because, through the season, you are going to get injuries and that is part and parcel of it. It is not easy to do but you have still got to go out there, perform and win matches. We have got to get back to doing that as quickly as possible."
