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

The 2-1 victory is United's latest memorable win in Turin and boosts their hopes of progressing from Group H to the knockout rounds.

Mourinho remarked: "Of course, they are strong, of course they have phenomenal players". "And especially there is always a lot of negative comments about us but hopefully they might say something positive for once, because I think we deserve it, the team deserve it, the manager deserves it for getting this fantastic result". After United's 1-0 loss to Juventus at home two weeks ago, he responded to the goading of the Italian fans by holding up three fingers toward them, denoting the treble of titles - Champions League, Serie A and Italian Cup - he won with Inter in the 2009-10 season. Juventus' defense will again be hard for United to play against.

Paul Pogba was the unexpected centre of attention yesterday evening following Manchester United's victory over Juventus. Mourinho was confronted by Juventus defender Bonucci, who was visibly displeased at the two-time European champion's celebrations, but United captain Ashley Young was quick to step in and separate the two from further squabbles.

After years in the doldrums Italian clubs other than Juventus are starting to make a mark on the competition and going toe-to-toe again with the world's best.

Another Manchester United game and another late victor; another game in which United conceded first but another when Jose Mourinho's team showed enough character to fight back.

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. Juventus beat Cagliari 3-1 over the weekend. We're top of the group, so there's no need to set the alarm bells ringing.

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

Cristiano Ronaldo looked to have haunted the club which turned him into a global superstar when he volleyed in the opening goal in the 65th minute after Juventus had dominated proceedings and struck the woodwork twice.

"Look, I've not got a problem with it", Murphy said. Another great goal in the Champions League for Ronaldo, and he seems to be collecting them at the Allianz Stadium after the unforgettable overhead kick for Real Madrid there last season.
