Carrick backs Falcao to hit the goal trail

Michael Carrick has backed Radamel Falcao to hit the goal trail and spearhead Manchester United's title charge.

United were held at Villa Park on Saturday, despite the hosts having Gabby Agbonlahor sent off with 25 minutes left.

Christian Benteke had put Villa ahead against the run of play before Falcao scored his second United goal to level.

He's scored so many goals over the years and you feel when he gets the chance he'll score.

It was a terrific header, so I'm pleased for him.

After being out for a bit that's him back and hopefully he can go on a bit of a streak now.

– Carrick talking to MUTV.

Suarez: I wasn't obsessed by scoring first league goal

Luis Suarez was delighted to score his first league goal for Barcelona, but claimed the victory was more important.

Suarez had scored twice in the Champions League but, before the 5-0 win over Cordoba on Saturday, the 27-year-old had yet to find the net in the Primera Division following his summer move from Liverpool.

The Uruguayan did not make his debut until late October because of a four-month ban for biting, but had played seven matches without finding the net.

I did break my duck but it was more important for the team to get the three points. Now we need to get some rest and start thinking about our next matches.

I know I am a striker and I have to score goals, but I was sure that with my team-mates' help I'd eventually get one.

I wasn't obsessed with it because I knew I was helping the team to get good results. Of course it's always important to get goals in the league, but I wasn't panicking.

– Suarez speaking to Barcelona's website.
