Twitter reacts as Manchester United beat Juventus in Italy

"The game was a very good game, a high level game", said Mourinho.

A night of triumph for Manchester United in the Champions League produces glorious echoes of the Red Devils' European heyday. 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.

Mourinho's team needed two goals in the last four minutes but are now in a fantastic position to qualify from Group H and make it into the knockout rounds.

Juventus, which was the only team in the Champions League still with a flawless record, remained top of Group H but is only two points ahead of United. "Hopefully we can get all three points". They nearly let United back into it at Old Trafford after switching off and this time they were punished for missing gilt-edge chances by a cynical away side.

He brought on Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini with 11 minutes left and United deservedly behind to a Cristiano Ronaldo wonder goal, and both were instrumental in the turnaround, Mata whipping home the equaliser and Fellaini flicking on a cross that Sandro eventually nodded into his own net.

The Hubble telescope was launched on April 24, 1990, via the space shuttle Discovery from Kennedy Space Centre in Florida. The lifetime of the young stars is very small in astronomical terms - just a few million years.


The case hinges on the proper translation of the Portuguese phrase Mourinho was seen to be mouthing on camera after another awesome United comeback - the full details of the case can be found here. Massimiliano Allegri made a decision to give Alex Sandro and Giorgio Chiellini a game off, saving them for Wednesday's game against United.

Juve defender Leonardo Bonucci came across to remonstrate with Mourinho - who defended his actions in his post-match press conference, saying "I didn't insult them, I just made a little thing".

Mourinho's teams are famous for being able to keep clean sheets but they seem incapable at the moment. I think they are a better side than Juve, which is a big statement, but based on current form, I have no doubts.

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 watched the game with all my Juventus teammates and we were talking about whether he should have celebrated scoring against his former club. With Lukaku they are more inclined to play direct, whereas Sánchez is really good at dropping deeper and linking up with the midfield and wingers.
