Man United No 2 Faria leaving after 17 years with Mourinho

Man United No 2 Faria leaving after 17 years with Mourinho

The day was, of course, dominated by the farewell to Michael Carrick. The 20-year-old had a hard start to the game but started to become more involved with around half an hour played.

Michael Carrick arrived at Old Trafford from Tottenham Hotspur in 2006, and has made 464 appearances for the Red Devils.

"I've done it because I think in these last few matches of the season everyone deserves a start".

There was also an extremely warm welcome for members of United's European Cup-winning squad from 1968, to mark the forthcoming 50th anniversary of the 4-1 Wembley win against Benfica.

There was even less goalmouth action in the second period with both sides largely going through the motions. Marcus Rashford gave the hosts the lead with a tap-in with around 10 minutes left to play before half-time. The Spaniard had ghosted in behind Watford's rearguard and he brilliantly controlled Carrick's pass as it dropped out of the sun. Mata hit Rashford first time along the right and he did the same, firing the ball into the area.

In the first half, Romero faced a header from Watford from point blank range.

He also offered up some words of support for his former boss Alex Ferguson, who is recovering in hospital after a brain haemorrhage.

That proved to be the trend for most of the half, which prompted Mourinho to introduce Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera for the final stages of the second half.

Carrick was called ashore in the 85th minute to a standing ovation.

"It's hard to believe it's not Scholes", chorused Old Trafford throughout, "it's Carrick don't you know".

It was far from a classic in Manchester on Sunday afternoon, but United secured another three points to move onto 81 for the season, while Watford end the campaign down in 14th.

"It's hard because he is my friend, 17 years is a long time", Mourinho added. "We will do everything we can next week to bring the FA Cup back here".

It's the big one. The team then plays Chelsea in the FA Cup final next weekend.
