Rest the cure for Carrick

michael-carrickMichael Carrick believes Manchester United's winter getaway to Qatar can prove vital in their quest for trophies this season.

The Reds flew out to the Middle East this week for four days of sun and training, in a bid to recharge their batteries away from the freezing British temperatures.
And the rest of United's rivals could be forced to shiver for very different reasons if the trip does have the desired effect.
Sir Alex Ferguson's team have seen their lead at the top of the Premier League cut from 10 points to five by rivals Manchester City in little over a week. They are now available to back at 1.33 in the outright betting.
Carrick has arguably been United's best player this season aside from Netherlands striker Robin van Persie.
And the Geordie is set to be at the heart of the midfield again when they host Fulham in the FA Cup this weekend at Old Trafford. United are priced 1.28 for the home win, the draw is quoted 5.00 and Martin Jol's Cottagers can be backed at 12.00.
The England midfielder said: "I think it will be an important break for us. We can get the sun cream out and get out on the beach and relax a bit.
"It's a busy season and there are busy times ahead. It's about recuperating and getting ready for the next game."
Don't forget, all Premier League matches are covered by the bet365 100% Euro Soccer Bonus, where you could earn a bonus of up to 100% on your returns on pre-match accumulator bets.
