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

Adjust Comment Print

'I am very happy in England, my contract is up in the summer, and I'm in talks with Manchester United in order to see what happens, ' Mata told El Transistor after United's win over Juve.

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.

Outside of one draw, Juventus have won every game they have played this season. There you have United winning, playing really well towards the end, but all the focus is still on what the manager did after the game.

But Ronaldo broke the deadlock when Bonucci curled over a pass which flew over Lindelof and straight into the path of Ronaldo who volleyed in past a helpless De Gea. That sign that I made is actually not an offence.

The Red Devils will host Young Boys later this month at Old Trafford before travelling to Spain to take on Valencia in their final group game on December 12.

Cristiano Ronaldo was quiet for the first hour or so of Juventus' match with Manchester United on Wednesday in the Champions League group stage.

"I think tonight was a very special win, especially with going 1-0 down, we all know how hard it can be coming here", Shaw said.

Ronaldo's comments, coupled with his goal celebration, has been strongly criticized by a section of United fans on social media.

As I said on 5 live, I would not single out any of United's players for praise.

Pogba didn't excel, but he was well received at his former club on his return to Italy.

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

Mourinho's United are next in action against Manchester City on Sunday (4.30pm). With Lukaku they are more inclined to play direct, whereas Sánchez is really good at dropping deeper and linking up with the midfield and wingers.

There has been more confidence and attacking intent about the team in recent weeks, looking at their best when their backs are to the wall and when they are underdogs with the vultures circling. City have scored 12 goals in their last two matches and are in unbelievable form, with Riyad Mahrez showing why he was right to leave Leicester and join a bigger club.

After a shaky start to the campaign Mourinho has managed to steer United back on course, culminating in Wednesday's remarkable win.

Nemanja Matic went into the book inside 12 minutes for a shocking tackle on Paulo Dybala but the Serbian was on hand to block from Juve's No. 10 as he tried to wiggle his way into the box.
