Jose Mourinho's side had looked utterly toothless in attack but after the Portuguese threw on Mata, Marouane Fellaini and Marcus Rashford late in the game they staged the most unlikely of comebacks, recalling their epic 3-2 win from two goals down in Turin in the 1999 semi-finals.

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.

"I didn't offend anyone at the end, I just made a gesture that I wanted to hear them louder".

"When I work for a club like Manchester United I need to forget my past as in those 90 minutes I represent Manchester United, " Mourinho said.

For Republicans, the loss of one chamber of Congress was somewhat blunted by a better-than-expected performance in the Senate. Joe Donnelly and Heidi Heitkamp and Democrat Andrew Gillum conceded to GOP's Ron DeSantis for the race for Governor.

He added: "On a lovely Italian day, I made a little thing".

Mourinho claimed after the success, which has triggered a run of four wins and draw in the last six games, that even "if people don't like Brexit it is my fault". But I respect Juventus and the quality they have. 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.

Unfortunately for United, if City create chances like Juve did - and the Italian champions had two other clear-cut openings as well as their goal - then City will score.

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.

A fortnight after being outclassed by Juventus at Old Trafford, victory at the Allianz Stadium represented a lot more than just a boost to United's prospects of reaching the Champions League knockout stages.

The Red Devils will host Young Boys later this month at Old Trafford before travelling to Spain to take on Valencia in their final group game on December 12.

Heavy scrutiny at Manchester United comes with the territory and both players and managers must learn to deal with it if they want to succeed, according to Ander Herrera.

"After their goal I think we had five minutes to wake up again but the team was there was the first minute to the last". "Here [in Turin], we were lucky to win in the last minute, against Chelsea we were unlucky not to win in last minute", Mourinho added.

Ronaldo scored his first Champions League goal for the Serie A giants with a tremendous volley in Turin, but they were beaten despite a dominant performance.
