  • Juventus Champions League

Legit.ng recalls that Paulo Dybala's lone goal was all that Juventus needed to beat Manchester United in their Champions League clash at Old Trafford.

This has been prevalent in the past few weeks with United scoring an equaliser in three of their last five in all competitions, often producing an inspiring second-half display. "So I think he was really good for us".

United remain outside of the Premier League's top four, but again have a sense of momentum and goal that had eluded them earlier this season, and 55-year-old Mourinho told BT Sport: "We were a very, very lucky team".

Juve's attacking players were never in his way, allowing him to complement them and contribute positively, reaching double figures for goals and assists in each of his last two seasons in Italy. My assistants were saying this is the best warm-up of the season.

Other opportunities fell for the likes of David Brooks, Adam Smith and Ryan Fraser, as the Dorset outfit had Jose Mourinho's team of big hitters reeling from the get-go.

With McTominay, Ander Herrera and Fred all available to play alongside Pogba and Matic, Mourinho is finally deploying a more effective system for Pogba than wasting his France international's talents by asking him to sit deep.

It’s good to talk, but US-China tensions are far from over
He gave no indication whether they made progress on settling an escalating tariff war over Beijing's technology policy. The two leaders agreed the trade dispute "should be handled properly through substantial consultation", Lu said.

Asked about his team talk at half-time, Mourinho continued: "I started off positive".

"Now we can focus on Manchester United".

After yet another frustrating start to the game, Manchester United once again crawled their way back, sealing all three points in the dying embers of the game.

"When we make a defensive mistake, instead of forgetting and keeping playing, it is something that triggers instability".

"The team looked like we don't work tactically during the week which is obviously the worst feeling for me because we work so much and I expect my team to be really good and I feel really frustrated with that", Mourinho said. We were prepared for what Bournemouth have done in the season. "Against Everton we were good, but we need to be a team who performs well in the whole game".

"We were ready for everything, I can't understand the mentality that brings me more white hair!"
