United fight back to snatch unlikely Champions League late win at Juventus

Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho face off in the Manchester derby

And, on Wednesday night in the febrile cavity of the renovated Juventus Stadium, they made it three straight wins.

United have developed a nasty habit of starting games slowly - they were a goal down inside 20 minutes when Juventus won at Old Trafford - but that wasn't the case here.

As I said on 5 live, I would not single out any of United's players for praise. "I only get angry, rightly, with my team when they go to sleep every now and then". "What he proved in Turin was that he can still give his team the tactics to make them competitive against superior opponents", he told the Daily Mail. I train a lot. "The most important thing is the three points".

Both Fellaini and Pogba were in the vicinity when Ashley Young's free-kick caused havoc, resulting in an Alex Sandro own goal. "It's a huge credit to the team for keeping on fighting and never giving up".

"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. 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.

"I think it's good to have the two games quite close together because the first game is quite fresh in a lot of people's minds".

"We are the real Manchester United also in the bad moments because we have to recognise that we have had bad moments and we have to improve", the Spaniard added.

United looked confident in possession in the opening exchanges but it was Juventus who had another chance shortly after as Rodrigo Bentancur's shot from outside the box was deflected behind for a corner. It was clear at times that his confidence is still low: after all, he entered Wednesday's game having scored just four times in 27 appearances, and his appearances this season have been sporadic at best.

Lindelof has looked far more assured, particularly in European games, in recent months and he will have to be on top of his game when he goes up against City's Sergio Aguero, who has scored seven Premier League goals during this campaign.

It doesn't bode well ahead of a trip to Manchester City on Sunday.

The Portuguese was in his element winning at the home of his former fierce Serie A rivals, charging onto the pitch to taunt the home fans in Turin by cupping his ear as United players and supporters celebrated a win gained by Mourinho's decisions from the bench.

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