Michael Carrick insists that nobody inside the Manchester United dressing room is getting carried away with talk that the title race is over.

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has insisted that this season's title race is not over.

With 11 matches left to play, United hold a 12-point lead over rivals and champions Manchester City at the summit.

However, Carrick has revealed that the playing squad are having their feet kept on the ground by their manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

"We're trying the best we can [to block out talk of the title being won already]," he told MUTV. "We have a job to do and the manager has said we need to think game to game and just win the next match, what's in front of us. You can't look too far ahead because it can come back and bite you."

Next up for the Red Devils is a home match against Norwich City on Saturday afternoon.
