United fight back to snatch unlikely Champions League late win at Juventus

Juve defender Leonardo Bonucci came across to remonstrate with Mourinho - who defended his actions in his post-match press conference, saying "I didn't insult them, I just made a little thing". His late involvement in Sandro's own-goal victor for United wasn't enough to make Pogba stand out.

I am expecting the Manchester derby to follow the same pattern as Wednesday night, with City having more possession and United defending for long periods. Mata coming on got the goal, [Marouane] Fellaini causing havoc in there as well.

More than anything, United's players seem to be enjoying themselves again after a tough start, as Lingard admitted in the wake of the Juventus win. Juventus' defense will again be hard for United to play against.

Manchester United will now switch their focus back to Premier League affairs and their crunch clash at Manchester City on Sunday.

"United players need to have the personality to cope with that. I am really proud of my boys because they did everything". We carried on, we pushed and we know that we can be unsafe on free-kicks because they defend very well (in open play).

"Hopefully this can give us great momentum now and we'll have a good few days of training and reboot ourselves for the game (on Sunday)".

"Speaking to BT Sport after Wednesday's win, Ferdinand said: "[The win was] exactly what we wanted, going into the derby at the weekend as well, what a fantastic result.

"I think we played this season against Chelsea and Juventus away, the two best teams that we faced this season and we played very well in both".

Pogba didn't excel, but he was well received at his former club on his return to Italy.

'When Mourinho came, the same and we won titles.

Goaded by the home fans throughout, he reacted at the end by surging on to the field and cupping his ear to the home supporters before being led off the field. Although the Portuguese admitted that he probably should not have done that, most United fans were delighted that he did. There was more of a thread between United's attacking players against Juve than there is when Lukaku plays. "We stick together through the hard times and the good and we win games like this, and it puts us on a high". In 2015, he was even named the Premier League's best free-kick taker of all time in a poll.

Now we know that Ronaldo actually apologized after celebrating his goal against Manchester United, but it remains to be seen if the Red Devils fans will keep supporting their legend like they have done all these years. It was one of those nights.
