Michael Carrick is refusing to get carried away following Manchester United's victory over Arsenal on Tuesday.
United cruised to a 4-1 aggregate success to set up a UEFA Champions League final against either Chelsea or Barcelona.
They have also won the Carling Cup and Club World Cup this season and continue to hold a three-point lead in the Premier League with a game in hand on their main rivals.
However, Carrick is taking nothing for granted and has warned his team-mates not to lose focus ahead of Sunday's crucial Manchester derby at Old Trafford.
"Nothing has been won yet," said the midfielder. "We still have a lot of tough games coming up.
"We just have to be ready for Sunday and the games after that. Hopefully we can go into the final as champions."
Carrick was delighted with United's display at Emirates Stadium as they were given few problems by Arsenal.
He added: "You aim to peak at the right time.
"In the big games you want everyone at top form and thankfully everything came together really well."
