Cristiano Ronaldo: Manchester United did nothing to win the game

Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho face off in the Manchester derby

"But that one, the result, and the fact that it was at United, the respect that United commanded in that period in time, makes it one that will forever go down in history". This was the stuff dreams were made of, a goal which evoked memories of late, dramatic comebacks long associated with Ferguson's indomitable sides.

Silva was outstanding in the win, scoring the fifth and then producing a magical half-volley pass to set up Edin Dzeko for the sixth.

The goal not only won the game, it transformed the group. I like to read good articles and a passionate football fan.

"In recent weeks, United have been reactive".

I don't buy into the view that he is not a big-game player - you only have to look at his performance in the World Cup final to see that he is. Mourinho was confronted by Juventus defender Bonucci, who was visibly displeased at the two-time European champion's celebrations, but United captain Ashley Young was quick to step in and separate the two from further squabbles. As Cristiano Ronaldo was keen to point out, Juventus should have been three or four up by the time Juan Mata equalised with that sumptuous pressure free-kick.

It is a big ask for United to stop them, and they will have to play much better than they did against Juve to stand a chance.

"We carried on, we pushed and we know that we can be risky on free-kicks because they defend very well".

Curry limped off shortly after half time in England's win against South Africa last weekend before leaving Twickenham on crutches. We are asking one referee to do it the way they did it when blokes like me were playing, jogging around.

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

Pep Guardiola's Premier League champions finished 19 points ahead of United last term, and City will get another chance to exert their authority over their local rivals this weekend.

Goaded by the home fans throughout, he reacted at the end by surging on to the field and cupping his ear to the home supporters before being led off the field. United's man in form and their most risky forward again.

Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo played down the significance of his team's loss to Manchester United in the Champions League on Wednesday.

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.

Perhaps, but Bayern Munich were also the better side in the 1999 Champions League final and their name wasn't engraved on the trophy.

"So, it is a different situation but it is a fantastic victory for us - a victory that is not just about the points we lost at home, it is about the feeling of how well we played". It was one of those nights.
