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

"I think because of the venue and the importance of the game, it's one of the best [that I've scored]". "We should have won the game easily, by three or four goals".

Juan Mata's 86th-minute free kick and an Alex Sandro own goal in the final minute gave Jose Mourinho's team a crucial win against the Italian champions, which could see United qualify for the Champions League knockout stages with a home victory against Young Boys later this month. "That Cristiano Ronaldo goal was handsome and the player [Leonardo Bonucci] that made that attractive pass, is a central defender!"

"Now I think we are held in great esteem". 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 have, though, suffered striking losses this season and underperformed at times, which is why they are out of the Carabao Cup and seventh in the Premier League.

It was the eighth goal this season for the 33-year-old Ronaldo who arrived from Real Madrid in July in a deal estimated to cost 340 million euros in total over four years, on top of the 110 million-euro transfer fee.

In case you didn't know...

...




City has also lost only one match in any competition this season - a 2-1 setback at home against Lyon - and has scored 12 goals in its past two matches.

With a bit more luck, they might be able to get something out of Manchester City at Etihad Stadium on Sunday too, but they will need some extra quality as well. I've been really impressed with how he has managed to force his way into Pep Guardiola's plans.

"I want the feeling, it doesn't matter where we go, we go to compete and this is the feeling the Manchester United supporters around the world want".

I am a student of the game.

The 6-1 win over Southampton on Sunday was followed up by a 6-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League. As was evident in recent meek first half performances against Bournemouth and Juventus (at Old Trafford), United's strategy to stand off and only apply pressure to the ball 40 yards from goal (a unique strategy among the elite clubs) emboldens their opponents. United manager Mourinho also came back to the country where he'd shone at Juve's rivals Inter Milan.

"This game will give us a lot of confidence going into the next match". 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.
