Manchester United fans lash out at Cristiano Ronaldo for ‘disrespectful’ goal celebration

The result opens up Group H with Juventus now just two points ahead of Manchester United, and Valencia a further two points off the English side.

"Probably when Manchester United had heroics here (in 2003), Manchester United was the best team", Mourinho said.

The goal looked to be enough to win the game and secure top spot and qualification for the knockout stages with two games to spare for Massimiliano Allegri's team. He still needs to sharpen his fitness and intensity, but if he gets the game time, Sanchez can still be the big-game player Mourinho expected him to be when he signed him.

But Ronaldo broke the deadlock when Bonucci curled over a pass which flew over Lindelof and straight into the path of Ronaldo who volleyed in past a helpless De Gea.

Herrera knows United can ill-afford a repeat of that drop off against star-studded City, whose big-spending has come under scrutiny in allegations made by the German publication Der Spiegel.

Amazon Jumps in With Its Own Holiday Free Shipping Offer
Target last month raised the stakes for the all-important holiday shopping rush, offering USA customers free two-day shipping. That leaves Walmart as one of the only remaining e-commerce giants requiring a purchase minimum for free two-day shipping.

England striker Rashford says his side have taken a lot from that defeat and is expecting a much-improved performance on Wednesday evening. "Then if they are better than us they win, if they have more potential than us, they win, if we make mistakes and pay for the mistakes we lose but I want the feeling, it doesn't matter where we go, that we go to compete and this is the feeling the Manchester United supporters around the world want to have". It's been nine years since Ronaldo left United so although there is a respect there, you can't score a goal like that and not celebrate.

"I think tonight a lot of people would have wrote us off", Shaw said after the match.

Pogba didn't excel, but he was well received at his former club on his return to Italy.

Pep Guardiola's swashbuckling Manchester City lie in wait at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, when the Red Devils will look to build on a tremendous Champions League night in Turin. I think Anthony Martial has been very important for them recently because he gives them the ability to get past players and supplies a finisher's touch up front. 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. City have scored 12 goals in their last two matches and are in unbelievable form, with Riyad Mahrez showing why he was right to leave Leicester and join a bigger club.

I am a student of the game. "We stick together through the hard times and the good and we win games like this, and it puts us on a high". A point was the least they needed to have a chance of qualifying for the last 16 but winning was awesome, and now they are in a strong position to make the knock-out stage.
