I believe you are wrong saying Carrick is not the #1 choice for midfield. Manchester United's dilemma is finding him suitable partner week in and week out not finding a replacement for him. That being said Phil Jones is the best option, but over Carrick? This leaves us with the least dynamic midfield we could possibly create.
