The in-form midfielder sees the visit of the all-conquering Blues as the acid test of our fine run of form.
The heartbreaking loss on penalties against Liverpool in the Carling Cup is our only defeat since November 22 and we go into Saturday's clash unbeaten in eight in the Barclays Premiership, a run that included five straight wins.
"Everyone is enjoying it at the moment," said Michael. "It's been a good month especially over the Christmas period because we were playing well in the run up to it and it's always hard.
"We've now got a run of unbeaten games and when that is the case, everyone looks forward to the next one.
"The big test is now with Chelsea. It should be good, you always want to play against the best and this is another great test for us to see how well we can do.
"I thought we played well at United while Everton were a little under par and we were better on the day.
"If you win a couple of games then different questions are asked of you, 'can you win the next one?' whereas if you don't win a couple, people ask why.
"It's all about the next game and if you are winning, everyone is happy."
Michael Carrick says the players cannot wait for the next game to come around at the moment - in this case, the big one against Chelsea.
