Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho taunts Juventus crowd

  • City have had the most 10+ pass sequences ending in a shot or a touch in the box

With just four minutes remaining, United were still trailing by that Ronaldo strike when they were awarded a unsafe free-kick just outside the Juve box.

United had done well to stay in the game against a team used to winning.

Jose Mourinho has Manchester United playing with spirit and determination once again. After doing the same against Bournemouth last weekend, this couldbe a turning point for them and their manager, José Mourinho.

Mourinho has consistently stuck with Romelu Lukaku as his centre-forward, choosing instead to use Sanchez out wide, but with Lukaku injured, Sanchez was given his chance through the middle against Juventus and he impressed. I don't buy into the view that he is not a big-game player - you only have to look at his performance in the World Cup final to see that he is.

The gesture sparked a small altercation with Juventus players that overshadowed one of the most important results of the season for United, which has struggled domestically but now has a great chance of reaching the knockout stage in Europe. His effort on Wednesday - the pass from Bonucci, the run from Ronaldo and then to volley the ball as it was coming over his head - was just unbelievable. They bought that player (Ronaldo), they want to win everything, they can win everything and we are a team where numerous players didn't play big matches like this in the Champions League.

There has been more confidence and attacking intent about the team in recent weeks, looking at their best when their backs are to the wall and when they are underdogs with the vultures circling.

"After training I get the ball and try".

Pogba didn't excel, but he was well received at his former club on his return to Italy. "We should have won the game easily, by three or four goals".

A confident Mata knew he had to take the set-piece.

Wednesday was the third time in their past six matches that United have come from a goal down to win.

"We shouldn't have given away those free kicks, we're giving away a lot of those at the moment, it was the only way United was going to score, " Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said. City have scored 12 goals in their last two matches and are in unbelievable form, with Riyad Mahrez showing why he was right to leave Leicester and join a bigger club. I could speak for a lot of young players and United fans that watched the team when he was here and the majority of us have followed him as he's moved on in his career and that's what's special about United. Valencia, which earlier beat Young Boys 3-1, is two points further back.
