Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard trolls Ronaldo following last-minute UCL win

Juventus 1-2 Manchester United

Juventus 1-2 Manchester United

"I think league position has nothing to do with it, it's just a game by game thing really".

"But I don't think they think that it is an easy match for them". "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". We carried on, we pushed and we know that we can be risky on free-kicks because they defend very well (in open play).

It was the 121st goal in the competition for five-time Champions League victor Ronaldo who Juventus are counting on to help them lift their first European title since 1996.

I was very pleased to score my first Champions League goal for Juventus, but we're in good shape. Valencia, which earlier beat Swiss side Young Boys 3-1, is two points back.

Next up for United is Sunday's derby at Manchester City, where a good result for the visitor would truly silence Mourinho's numerous critics this season.

The Red Devils came from 1-0 down to secure a 2-1 win over Juventus after Juan Mata's free-kick and Alex Sandro's own goal to cancel out Cristiano Ronaldo's opener.

"We dominated the game for 90 minutes, had so many chances, could've killed it off three or four times, but we relaxed and were punished", Ronaldo told Sky Sport Italia. "We didn't have him in the first leg, Juventus introduced Barzagli to control us, but we immediately went direct and got the goals", Mourinho explained.

"We played a fantastic game, to our top level, as we can not be any better than this".

Manchester City are sitting at the top of the Premier League table and nine points ahead of Manchester United, who are trailing the Citizens in eighth spot in the table.

Sami Khedira and Paulo Dybala both hit the woodwork before five-time Ballon d'Or victor Ronaldo brought the capacity 41,470 crowd to their feet when he hammered home Bonucci's long pass from just inside United's half.

"It is just one more game".

Allegri had urged his side to achieve their first aim of the season by reaching the last 16, and a draw would have been enough.

Though he had to fend off competition from Young who also stood over the ball.

Victory over Guardiola's side would cut the gap at the top to six points but Mourinho refused to say the derby is a chance for his team to get back into the title race.
