Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick believes winning the FA Cup would turn his side’s season into a success.
The Red Devils booked their place in the tournamentÂ’s final for the first time since 2007 with a 2-1 win over Everton and will now face either Crystal Palace or Watford on May 21.
United have endured a mixed campaign to date, currently sitting fifth in the table and look unlikely to break into the Champions League places.
With success almost mandatory at Old Trafford, a first major trophy since claiming the Premier League title in the 2012-13 campaign would be huge for the club.
Carrick admits he is already looking forward to returning to Wembley next month and believes winning the competition would turn UnitedÂ’s season into a success.
“The FA Cup is the FA Cup regardless of everything else,” he said. “We’re in the final now and we have a chance. We’re not getting carried away because it’s a final and anything can happen.
“But in terms of the season, if you win the FA Cup, then it’s a successful season in some right.”
Next up for United is title-chasing Leicester and with them currently on a run of four straight wins, punters may choose to use their free bet to back them to take all three points against the Foxes next Sunday.
