Manchester City are 'untouchable' - Manchester United's Jose Mourinho

Manchester City are 'untouchable' - Manchester United's Jose Mourinho

Hopefully, we can win.

Juan Mata leveled with an 86th-minute freekick before a last-gasp Alex Sandro own goal earned United a dramatic victory, rekindling memories of its come-from-behind semifinal triumph at Juve in 1999, when the English side went on to lift the trophy.

It was the 121st goal in the competition for five-time Champions League victor Ronaldo who Juventus are counting on to help them lift their first European title since 1996.

United still have two important games to come against Valencia and Young Boys to seal secure passage through to the knock-out stages of the Champions League.

Manchester United will now switch their focus back to Premier League affairs and their crunch clash at Manchester City on Sunday.

"When you play for Manchester United, the biggest club in the UK and one of the biggest in the world, you have to get used to that [attention]", Herrera said.

Sami Khedira and Paulo Dybala both hit the woodwork before five-time Ballon d'Or victor Ronaldo brought the capacity 41 470 crowd to their feet when he hammered home Bonucci's long pass from just inside United's half.

It didn't take a lot to convince Ashley Young.

"And even if the good results were not in our pockets the performances were there, the positive attitude was there so we are going to try but Manchester City are a very powerful team". The love that they showed me today was unbelievable and how great is football when you see that?

"I was happy for the goal but I am a little bit disappointed", Ronaldo told Viasport. "These people, the club, they dream of winning the Champions League, but we have to take it step by step".

Captain Giorgio Chiellini said the team would have to learn a lesson, with a tough Serie a game coming up against AC Milan on Sunday. I hope we arrive on time!

Mourinho's celebrations after the match caused a stir as he cupped his hand to his ear to the home crowd but he deserved an enormous amount of credit for the shock result. "It was important to score to make it 1-1 and, after, it led us to the 1-2".

"We need to find positives and that is that this defeat won't be painful in the end".
