Paul Pogba underwhelms but Man United grab lucky late win at Juventus

Paul Pogba underwhelms but Man United grab lucky late win at Juventus

Attending the Juventus against Manchester United game on Wednesday certainly lived up to a great night.

"The thing that is a massive eye-opener for me now is I remember when he first came his talent was arguably one of the biggest talents that we've seen at United for a long time; to have him and Wayne [Rooney] in the same team was incredible when you look back". But I respect Juventus and the quality they have. "What he proved in Turin was that he can still give his team the tactics to make them competitive against superior opponents", he told the Daily Mail.

"There have been times when we've got it right and there will be times when we get it right again and times when we don't, but we have to understand that it doesn't always go to plan, and we have to be ready for that".

Juventus seemed certain to be heading for all three points, with United struggling to carve out clear-cut scoring opportunities, but Mata hit a free kick into the top left corner in the 86th minute and that seemed to inspire Jose Mourinho's side.

But he went jogging forward into the box for Ashley Young's free-kick a couple of minutes later and caused panic in the Juve defence.

After two goals in the final four minutes secured a vital three points in Europe, Mourinho responded to persistent abuse from the Juve fans, aware of his history as a former manager of rivals Inter, by cupping his hand to his ear.

Like Anthony Martial, Victor Lindelof looked destined for the Old Trafford scrap heap earlier this season, although the Swedish centre-half has been earning rave reviews from United fans for his performances of late.

The two 17-year-old teens will be released on house arrested under the condition they remain under 24 hour electronic monitoring. Ramos is accused of strangling his mother Thursday night after she confronted him about a D he received in one of his classes.

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.

If you keep beating teams like that - from behind and without playing especially well - then that starts to build belief.

There's an expectation that a club like United should get through in the Champions League every season and it looks as if they are going to qualify for the last 16.

"And I think even if this game doesn't end with a victory, I would have the same feeling that the team played really, really well from the first minute - I repeat - against a super team".

"I think because of the venue and the importance of the game, it's one of the best [that I've scored]".

Statement wins away from home in the Champions League have been in short supply since Sir Alex Ferguson retired five years ago, but this was one.

Manchester Utd manager Jose Mourinho had a few words for Juventus players after his side beat them 2-1 in Turin.
