Manchester United's comeback win at Juventus evokes memories of Alex Ferguson era

Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho face off in the Manchester derby

Two late goals gave United a surprise 2-1 victory at Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday and will serve as a big boost heading into another important match: Sunday's Manchester derby.

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

The celebration unfrotunately did not match up to the goal; after netting the opener, 5-time Ballon d'Or victor Ronaldo then wheeled away to celebrate simply by lifting up his shirt to reveal his chiselled six-pack to the crowd.

The United manager suggested afterwards the Juventus supporters had brought it on themselves.

Juventus still top the group from United but the gap is now just two points with two games to play.

"I was very pleased to score my first Champions League goal for Juventus, but we're in good shape".

After the match, Mata said he was proud of his team's fight following what turned out to be a vital win for Manchester United.

Pogba didn't excel, but he was well received at his former club on his return to Italy.

Anthony Martial should continue on the left flank after bagging five goals in his last four games while Ander Herrera is expected to continue in midfield.

But Sanchez offers totally different qualities to Lukaku, and they were on show in Turin.

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.

The defeat was Juve's first in 15 games in all competitions since Ronaldo signed from Spanish giants Real Madrid in July.

There has been more confidence and attacking intent about the team in recent weeks, looking at their best when their backs are to the wall and when they are underdogs with the vultures circling. "We played with that spirit and we scored two goals like this". I can see him setting up the side defensively and trying to get something from the game.

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. "And especially there is always a lot of negative comments about us but hopefully they might say something positive for once, because I think we deserve it, the team deserve it, the manager deserves it for getting this wonderful result".
