"The game was a very good game, a high level game", said Mourinho. Alexis Sánchez came deeper to get possession so there was no obvious threat to Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini at the back either. He'd probably decline to celebrate if he could redo it, but at least he quickly realized what he did will be seen as wrong by the United fans and tried to make up for it.
Then just after the hour, Bonucci played a wonderful ball over the top for Ronaldo whose side-foot volley whistled past De Gea to open the scoring.
In Turin, yet again, they stayed in the game and did not allow Juve to get too far in front, then got a bit of luck at the end to win it through Alex Sandro's own goal. It was very Ronaldo to take off his shirt and show off his 20-pack!
"It´s not that we spoiled his (Ronaldo) goal, but five minutes from the end this shouldn´t have happened basically", said Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri, whose side fell to their first defeat of the season.

The Jazz lead increased to seven or eight at several different points, but every time it did, Toronto managed to claw back into the game.
"United were far better at restricting them".
"I think because of the venue and the importance of the game, it's one of the best [that I've scored]".
I'm not sure whether Lukaku's absence has affected their approach, but Sánchez definitely offers something different when he plays in the striker role. He was superb for Sweden at the World Cup but was nowhere near as good for United when the Premier League season began. United also fought back to win 3-2 with a late goal against Newcastle last month. I'm not sure United have what it takes, but you never know. It doesn't bode well ahead of a trip to Manchester City on Sunday. "We played with that spirit and we scored two goals like this". After the game he was called in for drug testing and this caused him to miss the return flight home with his teammates. I've been really impressed with how he has managed to force his way into Pep Guardiola's plans.
"Shake the manager's hand, go over and clap your fans".
I am a student of the game. "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. We are not putting in consistent performances at the moment but there's still a long way to go and we still have a chance of pulling it back. "And especially there is always a lot of negative comments about us but hopefully they might say something positive for once, because I think we deserve it, the team deserve it, the manager deserves it for getting this awesome result". Lots of work to do - it is a marathon not a sprint.
