Manchester United striker Robin van Persie accused his team-mates of getting in his way following the 2-0 Champions League defeat to Olympiakos.

Midfielder Michael Carrick added on Sky Sports: "First half we had decent possession and felt in control of the game. They scored a goal from nothing and it's put them in a good position. "As obvious as it is to say, second half we didn't start very well and the second goal puts them in a terrific position. "It would have been nice for us to get an away goal near the end but the tie isn't over yet, we thoroughly believe that, but it's not ideal. "I thought first half, coming away in Europe, we were in control, but goals change games and they've scored the first one. Then we probably didn't react in the second half well enough until it was too late. "Don't get me wrong, to score three goals in this competition is tough but we've done it before and hopefully we'll do it again." Can United turn it around against Olympiakos? The second leg will be live on Sky Sports on March 19
