Brazil international Anderson is finally beginning to look like a player who merited a move from Porto in 2007.
The 22-year-old's initial years at Old Trafford were a massive disappointment, but he is starting to show that he could be capable of filling the boots of Paul Scholes.
Carrick thinks that the only way is up for Anderson, however, does recognise that his colleague needs to improve his goal ratio after scoring just once in 110 matches.
"Hopefully there are more to come," said the former Tottenham midfielder ahead of Tuesday night's match at Birmingham. "He has not really mentioned it much.
"Maybe he is waiting until he has scored a few more. Then we won't be able to shut him up. Ando is just full of life. He bounces around the place.
"He has been out for long periods but he has come back with a real spring in his step. He is young and his best days are still ahead of him."
