Paul Pogba a doubt for Manchester derby after missing training

Juan Mata and Ashley Young helped Manchester United to an important win in Turin

Juan Mata and Ashley Young helped Manchester United to an important win in Turin

The 55-year-old's side defended as a unit and maintained their cool in the face of a Juventus onslaught before Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini came on and won the game for Manchester United.

He delivered three trophies in his debut campaign, but has found the going a little tougher since then and has been forced to fend off reports of rifts within his camp this term amid inconsistent performances on the field.

The Belgian missed the last few games due to injury but United have been on a great run of form in his absence. "I don't think there's any need for it but that's the way he is". Different players, a different mentality, and you can see the attitude is not the same.

"That's true, I received an offer from them [City] and even talked to my Brazilian team-mates who play for our neighbours", said Fred, in an interview with FourFourTwo. The last 15 minutes [of games] was just Man United. I remember the fans singing that!

United's ability to snatch late goals under former manager Alex Ferguson was one their most potent weapons, an ability they have not managed to display with any sort of regularity since the Scot retired. "'Certainly he is refreshed now because Mourinho left him out for a while".

Cristiano Ronaldo has aimed a dig at Manchester United's tactics after the Red Devils sealed a thrilling 2-1 win at Juventus, claiming that the English team "didn't do much" in the game. "No new injuries", he said.

"I trust the people at the club and, if there's something wrong, we'll be punished", he said. I can not say we are going to be successful in our motivations, in our desire, but we played two different matches away against two very good teams - Chelsea and Juventus - and we managed to get good results. I'm learning things from him, that's for sure.
