“It’s something to build on and it gives us a base to move forward.

“We want to win on Tuesday and not concede. There is a lot more to come from us, we expect more and we hope for some better performances.”

Brugge represent an unknown quantity for United, with the two teams having never met in UEFA competition.

. We know we can play a lot of better and we have the players to do that. It’ll be a big two games in fact – they could help set us up for the season,” Carrick told United’s official website ahead of the contest at Old Trafford.

“What we have to gain [from winning the tie] is very important, but you approach both matches as any other games.

United missed out on Europe for the first time in 19 years after a disappointing seventh-placed finish in the 2013-14 Premier League season.

And midfielder Carrick is keen to stress the importance of the double header to United’s campaign.

United have started the Premier League season in solid, if unspectacular, fashion with 1-0 wins over Tottenham and Aston Villa.

Head coach Michel Preud’homme ” who worked with United midfielder Marouane Fellaini when the pair were at Standard Liege ” guided the club to a second-placed finish in the league last term.

Michael Carrick has urged Manchester United to build the foundations for their season in Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League play-off round first-leg tie against Club Brugge.

“Performance-wise it wasn’t as good as we’d have liked against Villa, although defensively I thought we did well and they didn’t really have many opportunities.

Carrick is hopeful that the team can continue the winning feeling, adding: “It’s about building momentum from the off. Hopefully we can get a good start and take a lead to their place
