Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has hailed the performances of the team's strikers during their win over Stoke City on Saturday.

A brace from Wayne Rooney, as well as goals from Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck, helped United come from behind to earn a 4-2 win over the Potters at Old Trafford.

After the game, Carrick spoke of the confidence that the trio provide the rest of the side with when they frequently find themselves on the scoresheet.

"It's a good sign when your front lads are scoring goals and creating chances for each other," Carrick told talkSPORT.

"As a team it gives you a real threat. It puts you on the front foot and gives you a lot of confidence knowing they're capable of producing like that. It's a real plus for us."

United currently sit second in the Premier League table, four points behind leaders Chelsea.
