Ashley Young's 7/10 for Man United sparks Juventus comeback

Two late goals gave United a surprise 2-1 victory at Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday and will serve as a big boost heading into another important match: Sunday's Manchester derby.

Mourinho is unpopular among Juventus fans after managing bitter rival Inter Milan for three years.

Mourinho said: "Probably when Manchester United had heroics here (in 2003), Manchester United was the best team". A point was the least they needed to have a chance of qualifying for the last 16 but winning was incredible, and now they are in a strong position to make the knock-out stage. They created two chances, set pieces, I know the English teams they are always looking for the set pieces.

With Fellaini and Pogba lurking nearby, the ball eventually being bundled over the line by Juventus midfielder Alex Sandro on 89 minutes, and United hung on through almost 5 minutes of stoppage time for the win.

However despite their impressive winning record Juventus have shown weakness this season. Valencia, which earlier beat Young Boys 3-1, is two points further back.

The trip to the Etihad offers United the chance to secure another statement win and silence critics that had grown during a poor start to the season.

Mourinho claimed after the success, which has triggered a run of four wins and draw in the last six games, that even "if people don't like Brexit it is my fault".

"Now we've got to lift our heads, as we played really well and are still top of the group". "It's OK to lose against United, but seeing how the match went it leaves us with a bit of a bitter taste".

"No, I leave the pitch immediately to avoid reacting, " he said.

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.

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

Allegri raised his eyebrows and gave a smile of appreciation at the goal.

The turnaround began when Juan Mata scored from a free kick four minutes from full-time, having been brought on as a substitute by Jose Mourinho in the 79th minute. A ball into the box was headed on by Marouane Fellaini and Sandro got the final touch as the ball was bundled over the line.
