Paul Pogba underwhelms but Man United grab lucky late win at Juventus

Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci angrily approached Mourinho as he cupped his ear at the Bianconeri fans and the United coach was escorted off the pitch by a Uefa official and some members of his staff.

However Scholes, a persistent critic of Mourinho this season, said the reaction was unnecessary.

Nonetheless, Mourinho maintained he didn't offend anyone but conceded he could have avoided the gesture. "This is something more I wanted to hear them make comments again or not".

"I was insulted for 90 minutes".

"What really annoys me is losing a match we deserved to win, but at this stage it doesn´t matter that much, we still have nine points".

Young took the free-kick from the left where there was a scrum of desperate Juventus players trying to keep it out.

'I don't like to compare situations, ' Herrera said, reflecting on the win that delayed City's Premier League title celebrations last term. Valencia, which earlier beat Young Boys 3-1, is two points further back.

The Special One responded to the taunts by holding three fingers up, reminding the away fans his treble at Inter Milan in 2009-10 season.

Allegri had urged his side to achieve their first aim of the season by reaching the last 16, and a draw would have been enough.

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

Having spoken bullishly in the prematch news conference about his form, happiness and United's prospects of winning a major trophy, Pogba was applauded back to Turin by the Juventus fans before the game. It doesn't bode well ahead of a trip to Manchester City on Sunday.

A couple of positive results after a slow start to the season has given United and it's under-fire manager a ray of hope as they face a daunting task on Sunday against Pep Guardiola's well-oiled City.

"And I think even if this game doesn't end with a victory, I would have the same feeling that the team played really, really well from the first minute - I repeat - against a super team". "We stick together through the hard times and the good and we win games like this, and it puts us on a high".

"But we played very, very well and this is what we want, we want to play well, we want to go to every stadium, and it doesn't matter the team, and play".

It was also the 121st Champions League goal for the player who holds the all-time record, and first since the 90th-minute penalty he scored for Real Madrid against Juventus in their dramatic quarter-final, second leg in Spain last April.
