Paul Pogba underwhelms but Man United grab lucky late win at Juventus

Michael Ballack Jose Mourinho InterviewsBallack It’s not always easy under Mourinho – but you have to be 100 per cent committed to his way

As I said on 5 live, I would not single out any of United's players for praise.

Jose Mourinho's side will play Young Boys and Valencia in their final two group matches, with qualification now firmly in their hands.

The ever mild-mannered United boss cupped his ear to the Juventus fans, who he claimed had been insulting him throughout, before being confronted by Bianconeri defender Leonardo Bonucci. A point was the least they needed to have a chance of qualifying for the last 16 but winning was wonderful, and now they are in a strong position to make the knock-out stage.

Juventus still top the group from United but the gap is now just two points with two games to play.

United were more organised in the first half than they were at Bournemouth - it would have been hard to be that bad again - and the United manager got his substitutions right, particularly bringing on Marouane Fellaini who caused a lot of problems in the last 10 minutes. They nearly let United back into it at Old Trafford after switching off and this time they were punished for missing gilt-edge chances by a cynical away side. "The most important thing is the three points". But two years after leaving in an £89 million move to United, Pogba did little justify his fee or make the Juve fans yearn for his return. Massimiliano Allegri chose to give Alex Sandro and Giorgio Chiellini a game off, saving them for Wednesday's game against United.

Immediately after the break, United had a chance as Anthony Martial sent an effort just wide from the edge of the box.

It was the third time in six matches United have come from behind to take all three points.

Mourinho's teams are famous for being able to keep clean sheets but they seem incapable at the moment.

And, minutes later, Dybala went even closer at the other end as he picked up the ball after some neat interplay to curl an effort off the crossbar with De Gea well beaten. Ronaldo scored a ridiculous goal against his former club, showed off his abs while celebrating and then apologized to the away fans for having done so.

With a bit more luck, they might be able to get something out of Manchester City at Etihad Stadium on Sunday too, but they will need some extra quality as well. They are going to be big rivals as we try to retain the title so it was a tough defeat to take.
