"Manchester United did nothing to win the game" - Ronaldo

"If we win the next game we are more than comfortable, so our heads are on that as well", United midfielder Jesse Lingard said.

Paul Pogba claims to be "happy" at Manchester United but has stopped short of ruling out a future return to Juventus.

Cristiano Ronaldo was quiet for the first hour or so of Juventus' match with Manchester United on Wednesday in the Champions League group stage.

Next up is Sunday's derby clash at champions Manchester City, who Pogba inspired another dramatic comeback against last time they met. There was more of a thread between United's attacking players against Juve than there is when Lukaku plays. Not now. Beat Young Boys at home later this month and United are as good as through.

United pulled off a result that was never on the cards based on their performance at Allianz Stadium, but they hung in there and came away with three points that no-one expected they would get beforehand either - I certainly didn't. It was clear at times that his confidence is still low: after all, he entered Wednesday's game having scored just four times in 27 appearances, and his appearances this season have been sporadic at best. They are going to be big rivals as we try to retain the title so it was a tough defeat to take.

"We carried on, we pushed and we know that we can be unsafe on free-kicks because they defend very well". "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 fantastic result".

Juve needed something special to break the United resistance and they got it when Bonucci's hopeful long ball from his own half dropped into the path of Ronaldo, who lashed it home on 65 minutes. Although the Portuguese admitted that he probably should not have done that, most United fans were delighted that he did.

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

Perhaps, but Bayern Munich were also the better side in the 1999 Champions League final and their name wasn't engraved on the trophy.

City has only dropped points against Liverpool this season and has lost only one league match at home in almost two years - but that was against United in April. It was one of those nights.
