Former Manchester United midfielder and the club's current assistant manager, Michael Carrick has revealed that he believes that the club have done enough and have improved massively to the extent that they are now expected to start winning trophies this season.

United finished in second place last season, behind their fierce and neighboring rivals Manchester City, who won the English Premier League title and Carrick believes that they need to do more than they did last season if they are to overtake their neighbors. Their second-place finish was an improvement on their finish the previous season and having made progress in the last couple of months, they are now considered as one of the contenders for the league title.

The Red Devils have already signed two players this summer following the arrival of Jadon Sancho from German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund and French defender Raphael Varane from Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid and a lot of people now believe that after the progress they have made in the last months and the players they have added to their squad now, they are expected to start winning titles, having not won any under Olé Gunnar Solskjær so far.

Solskjær already admitted that after already getting the backing of the club with the new signings, regardless of the new long-term contract he signed recently, he still has to deliver titles, or else he would consider his job to be on the line.

United kick off their new Premier League campaign with a home match against Leeds on the opening day of the new season and they would be hoping that they can start their new season with a win over their old rivals, as it would boost their confidence ahead of their next league fixture.
