Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho taunts Juventus crowd

Jose Verdugo

But one argument in the Chile international's defence is that he's not been handed the chance to play on his best position by Mourinho.

Back in 1999, United's 3-2 semi-final comeback against the same opposition reminded the world never to write them off on their way to the Nou Camp.

The result opens up Group H with Juventus now just two points ahead of Manchester United, and Valencia a further two points off the English side.

Juventus, which was the only team in the Champions League still with a ideal record, remained top of Group H but is only two points ahead of United.

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?" "The most important thing is the three points". 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.

United were more organised in the first half than they were at Bournemouth - it would have been hard to be that bad again - and the United manager got his substitutions right, particularly bringing on Marouane Fellaini who caused a lot of problems in the last 10 minutes. He'd probably decline to celebrate if he could redo it, but at least he quickly realized what he did will be seen as wrong by the United fans and tried to make up for it.

Juventus seemed certain to be heading for all three points, with United struggling to carve out clear-cut scoring opportunities, but Mata hit a free kick into the top left corner in the 86th minute and that seemed to inspire Jose Mourinho's side. "After their goal I think we had five minutes to wake up again but the team was there was the first minute to the last".

Lukaku's injury means he is a doubt for Sunday's trip to Manchester City, so Sanchez might get another outing at the Etihad.

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

The France global was back in Turin in Wednesday as he took in a Champions League outing with the Red Devils. "We stick together through the hard times and the good and we win games like this, and it puts us on a high". It was great. We know that it's a big team and, to be honest, when they scored a goal we had nothing to lose.
