Twitter reacts as Manchester United beat Juventus in Italy

"So I tried to do what I do in training a lot of times, practicing, practicing".

Jose Mourinho's side will play Young Boys and Valencia in their final two group matches, with qualification now firmly in their hands. "Hopefully we can get all three points".

In his post-match presser, Mourinho was even less apologetic and simissed concernt that his actions were against any UEFA rules, telling the assembled press: "You remember what they did to me?"

Mourinho's team needed two goals in the last four minutes but are now in a fantastic position to qualify from Group H and make it into the knockout rounds.

United had been unfortunate to fall behind to Ronaldo's goal, and a draw would have been a fairer result on the night. They nearly let United back into it at Old Trafford after switching off and this time they were punished for missing gilt-edge chances by a cynical away side.

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.

"When I work for a club like Manchester United I need to forget my past as in those 90 minutes I represent Manchester United, " Mourinho said.

Mata and Fellaini replaced Ander Herrera and Alexis Sanchez with 11 minutes to go.

Pjanic saw an effort from distance whistle just over, but United levelled things up with four minutes left.

It also feeds the kind of anti-media controversy Trump loves to generate, and which benefits him politically. Mr Trump responded by saying "I think you should let me run the country, and you run CNN ".

But he went jogging forward into the box for Ashley Young's free-kick a couple of minutes later and caused panic in the Juve defence.

Juan Mata's free-kick was equally effective as United looked to have nicked a point.

Mourinho's teams are famous for being able to keep clean sheets but they seem incapable at the moment.

"And it is a great joy for me because we won against a super team, and not because they are the enemy of Inter". It doesn't bode well ahead of a trip to Manchester City on Sunday. I'm with United now. It broke Juventus' momentum as they had been creating so many chances at the other end.

The two games churned out some freakish and brilliant moments.

"I think because of the venue and the importance of the game, it's one of the best [that I've scored]".

How good are City?

Whatever competition they are playing in, and whoever they are playing against, you just can not bet against them and I am always expecting them to score two or three goals. They are going to be big rivals as we try to retain the title so it was a tough defeat to take.
