"Manchester United did nothing to win the game" - Ronaldo

Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo said his former club Manchester United did nothing to deserve their 2-1 win over the Turin side in Wednesday's Champions League tie.

Kyle Walker has taken to Twitter to make fun of England team-mate Jesse Lingard after he was nutmegged during Manchester United's Champions League clash with Juventus on Wednesday night.

Having reached two of the last four finals, Juventus looked like genuine challengers for their first Champions League in over two decades when Ronaldo lashed home his 65th-minute volley. I could speak for a lot of young players and United fans that watched the team when he was here and the majority of us have followed him as he's moved on in his career and that's what's special about United. "It was a game where we could have lost 2-0, drew the game 1-1 or won the game 2-1", he added.

'I remember with Glen Hoddle he was a fantastic football player but England he was questioned.

"And they (Juventus) are a top team for many years now". Not now. Beat Young Boys at home later this month and United are as good as through.

But Sanchez offers totally different qualities to Lukaku, and they were on show in Turin.

Undeterred by Ronaldo's abdominal muscles, United battled on, and got their break four minutes from time, when substitute Juan Mata curled home a sublime equalizer from a set piece just outside the area.

Opposition doesn't come much tougher than Manchester City at the moment. "We played with that spirit and we scored two goals like this".

Minutes later, Marouane Fellaini flicked on a free kick and the ball ricocheted around near the far post before going in off Juventus defender Alex Sandro.

The Spaniard impressed last weekend against Bournemouth and was rewarded with a start against Juventus, helping provide more balance to the Red Devils midfield than summer signing Fred.

Subsequently, Pjanic and Cuadrado missed gilt-edged chances to extend the Old Lady's lead and they then ended up on the losing side against a team that's making mincemeat out of adversity a truly remarkable quirk of theirs. 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.
