Manchester United’s Turin win could be turning point for José Mourinho

Ronaldo scored for Juventus as they lost to Manchester United last night, with the Red Devils emerging from the showdown with a key three points to their name.

There was an early onslaught from Juventus, as Leonardo Bonucci found Paulo Dybala on the edge of the area with a dinked ball, and the Argentine then lofted it to Cristiano Ronaldo, but his shot was blocked by Victor Lindelof.

The trip to the Etihad offers United the chance to secure another statement win and silence critics that had grown during a poor start to the season.

Nonetheless, Mourinho maintained he didn't offend anyone but conceded he could have avoided the gesture. "It was just our present to them". "I didn't insult them".

He added: "On a attractive Italian day, I made a little thing". We will fight until the end and we'll get late goals as we have done over the last few games.

'I think Manchester United players need to have the personality to cope with that. "I'm really proud of my boys because the performance was really good". Juventus beat Cagliari 3-1 over the weekend.

The Special One responded to the taunts by holding three fingers up, reminding the away fans his treble at Inter Milan in 2009-10 season.

Like most foes who go to Juventus, United had been outplayed, but they still played well enough to stay in the game as Rodrigo Betancur, a 21-year-old midfielder who cost only €9 million (Dh37.75m), impressed as much as he had at Old Trafford.

Ashley Young quite clearly eyed it up before making a dummy run.

'I am very happy in England, my contract is up in the summer, and I'm in talks with Manchester United in order to see what happens, ' Mata told El Transistor after United's win over Juve. It doesn't bode well ahead of a trip to Manchester City on Sunday.

A win for the Red Devils would move them six points behind Pep Guardiola's men heading into the final global break of the season. "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". "We stick together through the hard times and the good and we win games like this, and it puts us on a high".

"The team is doing well both in the league and the Champions League and we're going to keep working hard in order to go very far". "Then if they are better than us they win, if they have more potential than us, they win, if we make mistakes and pay for the mistakes we lose but I want the feeling, it doesn't matter where we go, that we go to compete and this is the feeling the Manchester United supporters around the world want to have".
