Mourinho hails 'fantastic' Manchester United win over Juventus

"As soon as there was the free-kick in there, I had the confidence that I had to take it", he said following United's 2-1 Champions League victory. I like to read good articles and a passionate football fan.

For Manchester United to go to Turin and beat Juventus was a monumental result when you consider the form the Italian champions are in, and their defensive stability.

But they fell apart in the last five minutes as Jose Mourinho's side came from a goal down to claim a famous victory.

With just four minutes remaining, United were still trailing by that Ronaldo strike when they were awarded a risky free-kick just outside the Juve box. Mata is a genius in those type of situations and after that Juventus looked unsettled.

United continued to press as Szczesny was forced into his first real save of the game from Martial.

Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo played down the significance of his team's loss to Manchester United in the Champions League on Wednesday.

United kept possession very patiently but without Romelu Lukaku did not have a clear threat up front.

Another government figure speculated that Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab could resign over the issue of the Irish backstop. "These ideas are not backstops at all and don't deliver the UK's obligations", the spokesman said .

DF Chris Smalling, 7 - Trusted again by Mourinho despite a poor first half at Bournemouth and didn't let him down.

"Look, I've not got a problem with it", Murphy said.

Ronaldo is the all-time record scorer in the Champions League with 121 goals, but this was his first in the competition for Juventus - although he missed one match through suspension after his red card against Valencia.

I watched the game with all my Juventus teammates and we were talking about whether he should have celebrated scoring against his former club. It was very Ronaldo to take off his shirt and show off his 20-pack! I respect Juventus, I respect their players, their manager - I respect everything. But even so United won and that was a good sign. There was more of a thread between United's attacking players against Juve than there is when Lukaku plays.

Ander Herrera says Manchester City may be favourites for Sunday's derby but Manchester United remain the biggest side in the UK. "We played with that spirit and we scored two goals like this". This time Ahsley Young drove the ball into the box to a huddle of bodies in the six yard area. I've been really impressed with how he has managed to force his way into Pep Guardiola's plans.

I am a student of the game. A point was the least they needed to have a chance of qualifying for the last 16 but winning was fantastic, and now they are in a strong position to make the knock-out stage. I could speak for a lot of young players and United fans that watched the team when he was here and the majority of us have followed him as he's moved on in his career and that's what's special about United. We are not putting in consistent performances at the moment but there's still a long way to go and we still have a chance of pulling it back. Lots of work to do - it is a marathon not a sprint.
