Juan Mata speaks out on new contract after Juventus win

Juan Mata speaks out on new contract after Juventus win

"It was just our present to them".

United continued to press as Szczesny was forced into his first real save of the game from Martial.

Another Manchester United game and another late victor; another game in which United conceded first but another when Jose Mourinho's team showed enough character to fight back.

But they fell apart in the last five minutes as Jose Mourinho's side came from a goal down to claim a famous victory.


The 22-year-old appeared to be on his way out of Old Trafford when the club fined him for returning late to pre-season training following the birth of his child, although he has flourished on the pitch in recent weeks to emerge as one of United's most important players. Romelu Lukaku did not play against Bournemouth but could be available against Juventus.

"I think it's always good to be the outsider, so people expect bad of us and then we surprise people", said Pogba afterwards. His effort on Wednesday - the pass from Bonucci, the run from Ronaldo and then to volley the ball as it was coming over his head - was just unbelievable. "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".

Minutes later, Marouane Fellaini flicked on a free kick and the ball ricocheted around near the far post before going in off Juventus defender Alex Sandro. "I was happy for the goal but disappointed because we should have won the game easily by three or four goals".

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.


"If I was a Juve player I wouldn't have gone over to him".

United struggled to get any scoring chances.

A confident Mata knew he had to take the set-piece. "We played with that spirit and we scored two goals like this". "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 fantastic result".

PSG are third in Group C after their battling 1-1 draw with Napoli in the Stadio San Paolo cauldron, and while they are only one point behind leaders Liverpool, Tuchel's side have only managed to beat Red Star Belgrade in four matches.


However despite their impressive winning record Juventus have shown weakness this season.
