Manchester City vs Manchester United: How do you beat Pep Guardiola's side?

The victory left Manchester United second in their Champions League group and just two points behind Juventus with two games left to play in the group stage. Three, four goals. And Manchester didn't do much, in my opinion. And, on Wednesday night in the febrile cavity of the renovated Juventus Stadium, they made it three straight wins. The Premier League champions are two points clear at the top of the standings, and nine points ahead of seventh-place United. They bought that player (Ronaldo), they want to win everything, they can win everything and we are a team where numerous players didn't play big matches like this in the Champions League.

"He (Massimiliano Allegri) left Matuidi out tonight as well, he left Cancelo out".

He also confronted Juve defender Leonardo Bonucci before walking back off the pitch and down the tunnel.

United's players sprinted towards their manager in delight. 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. Not now. Beat Young Boys at home later this month and United are as good as through.

However, the Portuguese explained he was justified to do so after they verbally abused him throughout the game.

Lingard was out for several weeks with a groin problem, but recently returned to the team and started against Juventus in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

The England winger has taken a shot at Cristiano Ronaldo's midriff-baring goal celebration on social media, after two late strikes from the English side cancelled out Ronaldo's stunning opener in Turin on Wednesday evening.

"I think tonight was a very special win, especially with going 1-0 down, we all know how hard it can be coming here", Shaw said. "It's a great team spirit".

Paul Pogba's return did not quite go so well against his former club and he again struggled to show his best form.

I was expecting a Juventus win, with the team in very good form.

The improved form of Anthony Martial has been a cause for delight amongst United fans as the Frenchman has scored five goals in his past four Premier League appearances, and his rejuvenation from sinner to saint under Mourinho has been remarkable.

"So, it is a different situation but it is a fantastic victory for us - a victory that is not just about the points we lost at home, it is about the feeling of how well we played".
