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

Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho face off in the Manchester derby

The case hinges on the proper translation of the Portuguese phrase Mourinho was seen to be mouthing on camera after another wonderful United comeback - the full details of the case can be found here.

But they fell apart in the last five minutes as Jose Mourinho's side came from a goal down to claim a famous victory. They have fantastic players and are a top team but we're going back to Manchester with three points. I have always felt it is better to lose earlier on in the season than at the end of a title race, because you have time to find the fire to win again and catch up. Massimiliano Allegri made a decision to give Alex Sandro and Giorgio Chiellini a game off, saving them for Wednesday's game against United.

Before stepping up to take the set-piece, Mata had to convince his teammate Ashley Young that he was the right man to take it, and following the match the United he explained to MUTV exactly what he said.

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

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.

Unfortunately for United, if City create chances like Juve did - and the Italian champions had two other clear-cut openings as well as their goal - then City will score.


The two games churned out some weird and brilliant moments. I think Anthony Martial has been very important for them recently because he gives them the ability to get past players and supplies a finisher's touch up front.

How good are City? 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. Now, it appears that the Portuguese manager is getting his team back on track to qualify for the next round of the UEFA Champions League.The Red Devils now sit in second place with seven points, just two behind the opponents they just faced.

Nemanja Matic chipped a lovely ball over the Juventus defence in the direction of Alexis Sanchez, but it had just too much on it and went out for a goal kick.

"Today we did a big step, but it's not over yet."

Dion Dublin was speaking to BBC Sport's Chris Bevan.
