Mourinho hails 'fantastic' Manchester United win over Juventus

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

"I think it's always good to be the outsider, so people expect bad of us and then we surprise people", the United midfielder said after his team's 2-1 smash and grab win against Juventus on Wednesday night and, no doubt, with one eye on Sunday's derby at Manchester City.

After doing the same against Bournemouth last weekend, this couldbe a turning point for them and their manager, José Mourinho.

He told the channel: "As soon as there was the free kick in there, I had the confidence that I had to take it".

It still is perhaps just a matter of time before they do secure a knockout spot but given how the game unfolded in the first 25 minutes of the second half, United shouldn't have been on the property, let alone have a gander at the backdoor. Attending the Juventus against Manchester United game on Wednesday certainly lived up to a great night.

This time he had another win to celebrate, after watching his team fight back from Cristiano Ronaldo's spectacular opening goal. 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. "It was important to score to make it 1-1 and, after, it led us to the 1-2". "I was happy for the goal but disappointed because we should have won the game easily by three or four goals".

The result leaves United in a much more comfortable position in the group stages, now having only to beat Young Boys and draw with Valencia to qualify for the last-16. "The game was really top and I think we perform at a high level".

Allegri was asked if he would have reacted similarly to Mourinho.

Jose Mourinho also had his say on the win after the match, harking back to Manchester United's win against the Italian champions in 2003.

It's unclear exactly what was said, but it's clear he was provoked. "I only get angry, rightly, with my team when they go to sleep every now and then".

The Portuguese superstar immediately ran to the corner flag, lifted up his shirt and pointed at his impressive stomach muscles.

Ronaldo scored his first Champions League goal for the Serie A giants with a tremendous volley in Turin, but they were beaten despite a dominant performance.
