Man United to take momentum into Manchester derby

The Red Devils" two visits to The Etihad under Mourinho ended with a crime against football that will forever be known as "Red Monday' when they drew 0-0, before United produced a remarkable comeback to win 3-2 last season. They are now placed second in Group H with seven points, two fewer than leaders Juventus and two more than third-placed Valencia.

"The thing that is a massive eye-opener for me now is I remember when he first came his talent was arguably one of the biggest talents that we've seen at United for a long time; to have him and Wayne [Rooney] in the same team was wonderful when you look back".

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?" If they can show the patience they did against Juventus then it could be a good day for his team.

This time around, Cristiano Ronaldo put the Italian champions ahead ahead with a perfectly-executed volley that was one of the best strikes I have ever seen.

It was their substitutes, Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini, who helped make the difference after coming on in the 79th minute, so Mourinho deserves credit for that change.

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.

Paul Pogba really wanted to own the stage back on his old turf with United against Juventus, but he went missing again Wednesday night.

"And it is a great joy for me because we won against a super team, and not because they are the enemy of Inter".

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

"I think it's good to have the two games quite close together because the first game is quite fresh in a lot of people's minds".

There's an expectation that a club like United should get through in the Champions League every season and it looks as if they are going to qualify for the last 16.

"But the way he's sustained his career and even improved year on year is just fantastic", Rashford told Manchester United's official website. Well they would not just be my favourites for the Premier League, they are favourites for the Champions League too.

Mourinho also claimed United have "one final to play" if they want to get through.

Allegri was asked if he would have reacted similarly to Mourinho.
