Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho taunts Juventus crowd

On a side note, Alexis Sanchez played a starring role in the comeback last term as he provided two assists to enhance a very decent personal record at The Etihad, where he has scored one goal and laid on three assists in his last four appearances.

Young took the free-kick from the left where there was a scrum of desperate Juventus players trying to keep it out.

I was expecting a Juventus win, with the team in very good form.

"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". 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.

"Now I think we are held in great esteem".

I'm not sure whether Lukaku's absence has affected their approach, but Sánchez definitely offers something different when he plays in the striker role.

A couple of positive results after a slow start to the season has given United and it's under-fire manager a ray of hope as they face a daunting task on Sunday against Pep Guardiola's well-oiled City.

The fact that the Serie A champions had not lost a group game at home since December 2009 speaks volumes about the magnitude of the Red Devils' achievement.

And it was United's smiling players who left Turin for the flight back to Manchester with three points as their fans mixed the United anthem "We'll Never Die" with "Do, do, do, Marouanne Fellaini". I can see him setting up the side defensively and trying to get something from the game.

It was a disappointing week for Juventus Women as we were beaten 3-0 by Milan on Sunday.

And Silva believes the famous 6-1 win at Old Trafford in 2011 en route to our first title in 44 years was the pivotal moment.

The 22-year-old appeared to be on his way out of Old Trafford when the club fined him for returning late to pre-season training following the birth of his child, although he has flourished on the pitch in recent weeks to emerge as one of United's most important players.

"This game will give us a lot of confidence going into the next match". I wouldn't do it again. Lots of work to do - it is a marathon not a sprint.
