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

  • United have had the fewest 10+ pass sequences of any of the big six teams

Statement wins away from home in the Champions League have been in short supply since Sir Alex Ferguson retired five years ago, but this was one.

City has only dropped points against Liverpool this season and has lost only one league match at home in almost two years - but that was against United in April. A point was the least they needed to have a chance of qualifying for the last 16 but winning was wonderful, and now they are in a strong position to make the knock-out stage.

The 55-year-old could do with some more of that golden touch at the weekend. They kept Juve at arm's length in the first half and looked comfortable until Ronaldo's fantastic finish on 65 minutes.

I am expecting City to create more chances, too.

Manchester United take on arch-rivals Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

7 - Mourinho's two decisions were to start with Jesse Lingard and Ander Herrera and both looked like the right calls.

Juve looked set to win Group H with two games to spare when Ronaldo rifled in Leonardo Bonucci's magnificent long pass just at it dropped over his shoulder, giving the Serie A leaders a thoroughly deserved lead.




De Gea was called into action again as Juan Cuadrado's cross deflected off Matic and forced him into a fine save.

Nevertheless, Jose was in jovial mood afterwards despite causing his latest brouhaha, telling a reporter who tackled him on what was said between his and Bonucci: "Do you understand Italian?.Then get the FA to translate for you", a sideways jibe at the English FA recently appealing a decision not to punish the Portuguese manager for alleged bad language following a Premier League game. He won his physical battles and defended well.

Paul Pogba really wanted to own the stage back on his old turf with United against Juventus, but he went missing again Wednesday night. Added much needed energy in midfield and should keep his place for the derby. It was one of those nights. 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 we played very, very well and this is what we want, we want to play well, we want to go to every stadium, and it doesn't matter the team, and play".

Marcus Rashford could have made it three, as he was sent in on goal but was denied by Szczesny.

PSG are third in Group C after their battling 1-1 draw with Napoli in the Stadio San Paolo cauldron, and while they are only one point behind leaders Liverpool, Tuchel's side have only managed to beat Red Star Belgrade in four matches.
