Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho taunts Juventus crowd

There is something rather uncomfortable about the club with the biggest wage bill in the Premier League being characterised as the underdog but, in the context of a week when plenty have been predicting misery for Manchester United, it was possible to see where Paul Pogba was coming from.

"I was insulted for 90 minutes. I probably shouldn't have done it, and with a cool head I wouldn't have done it, but with my family insulted, including my Inter family, I reacted like this".

Straight after Mata had put United's equaliser in the net, I saw Fellaini drop back into a holding position alongside Nemanja Matic to shore things up. I respect Juventus, I respect their players, their manager - I respect everything. 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.

Jose Mourinho's side had looked utterly toothless in attack but after the Portuguese threw on Mata, Marouane Fellaini and Marcus Rashford late in the game they staged the most unlikely of comebacks, recalling their epic 3-2 win from two goals down in Turin in the 1999 semi-finals.

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.

"But the team did well, we are still at the top of the group and we have two matches which will allow us to finish first".

And, minutes later, Dybala went even closer at the other end as he picked up the ball after some neat interplay to curl an effort off the crossbar with De Gea well beaten.

Juventus, on the other hand, looked unsafe every time they went forward thanks to the link-up play between Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala. "That Cristiano Ronaldo goal was handsome and the player [Leonardo Bonucci] that made that attractive pass, is a central defender!" A point was the least they needed to have a chance of qualifying for the last 16 but winning was unbelievable, and now they are in a strong position to make the knock-out stage.

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. "And especially there is always a lot of negative comments about us but hopefully they might say something positive for once, because I think we deserve it, the team deserve it, the manager deserves it for getting this wonderful result". We had an incredible escort here today - thank you to the Italian police.

And, if you can come to Allianz Stadium and take three points from a team as good as Juve, then you have done something right.
