Michael Carrick is expected to be in charge of Manchester United for Sunday's game at Chelsea as the club continue their search for an interim manager until the end of the season.
Carrick has been placed in temporary charge while United conduct a thorough process to appoint an interim boss following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last week, before beginning their search for a permanent successor.
The club are planning to make a permanent appointment at the end of the season and Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino is their first choice, with Ajax head coach Erik ten Hag also in their thinking.

Talks are ongoing with a number of candidates including Ernesto Valverde and Ralf Ragnick, while some reports suggest former Lyon head coach Rudi Garcia has also been approached.
Sky Sports News has been told United did not speak to anyone prior to Solskjaer's departure.
