Manchester United's Ander Herrera admits Manchester City are derby favourites

Juve defender Leonardo Bonucci came across to remonstrate with Mourinho - who defended his actions in his post-match press conference, saying "I didn't insult them, I just made a little thing".

Mourinho has a history of goading supporters and officials - but that side of his game has rarely been seen this season as his Manchester United side struggled in both the league and cup. "Here [in Turin], we were lucky to win in the last minute, against Chelsea we were unlucky not to win in last minute", Mourinho added.

The 55-year-old could do with some more of that golden touch at the weekend.

Mourinho has consistently stuck with Romelu Lukaku as his centre-forward, choosing instead to use Sanchez out wide, but with Lukaku injured, Sanchez was given his chance through the middle against Juventus and he impressed. Juventus' defense will again be hard for United to play against.

Bonucci floated a ball over the top of the defense and Ronaldo watched it over his shoulder before volleying into the top right corner.

The Spaniard joined the fray in the 79th minute of Wednesday's Champions League match with his side down a goal following a spectacular Cristiano Ronaldo strike. Ronaldo scored a ridiculous goal against his former club, showed off his abs while celebrating and then apologized to the away fans for having done so. But even so United won and that was a good sign.

I'm not sure whether Lukaku's absence has affected their approach, but Sánchez definitely offers something different when he plays in the striker role.

United struggled to get any scoring chances.

It doesn't bode well ahead of a trip to Manchester City on Sunday.

A confident Mata knew he had to take the set-piece.

"I have confidence in my free-kicks at the moment". "I wouldn't do that gesture again but I don't think I offended anyone and at the time it seemed like the appropriate response to those who had insulted all my family, apart from my Inter one too". I have always felt it is better to lose earlier on in the season than at the end of a title race, because you have time to find the fire to win again and catch up. A point was the least they needed to have a chance of qualifying for the last 16 but winning was incredible, and now they are in a strong position to make the knock-out stage.

PSG are third in Group C after their battling 1-1 draw with Napoli in the Stadio San Paolo cauldron, and while they are only one point behind leaders Liverpool, Tuchel's side have only managed to beat Red Star Belgrade in four matches.
