  • Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho face off in the Manchester derby

The Portuguese was in his element winning at the home of his former fierce Serie A rivals, charging onto the pitch to taunt the home fans in Turin by cupping his ear as United players and supporters celebrated a win gained by Mourinho's decisions from the bench.

In his post-match presser, Mourinho was even less apologetic and simissed concernt that his actions were against any UEFA rules, telling the assembled press: "You remember what they did to me?"

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

"There have been times when we've got it right and there will be times when we get it right again and times when we don't, but we have to understand that it doesn't always go to plan, and we have to be ready for that".

Victor Lindelof's performances in the centre of Manchester United's defence have improved so much over the past three or four games that perhaps they only need to buy one new centre back now rather than two.

The turnaround began when Juan Mata scored from a free kick four minutes from full-time, having been brought on as a substitute by Jose Mourinho in the 79th minute. He really should have approached the game determined to show his old fans what they were missing, but he was simply swallowed up Juve's midfield of Miralem Pjanic, Sami Khedira and Rodrigo Bentancur. Massimiliano Allegri made a decision to give Alex Sandro and Giorgio Chiellini a game off, saving them for Wednesday's game against United.

DF Victor Lindelof, 6 - fearless block from a Ronaldo shot early on but lost him when Leonardo Bonucci floated a ball over the top to allow the former United man to smash Juventus into the lead.

Mac Miller's death ruled accidental overdose of fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol
Alcohol and drug paraphernalia were found; however, TMZ reported the house was mostly "swept clean" before investigators arrived. Miller, 26, was found unresponsive at his Los Angeles-area home on September 7 and was declared dead soon after.

If you keep beating teams like that - from behind and without playing especially well - then that starts to build belief.

"I think we played this season against Chelsea and Juventus away, the two best teams that we faced this season and we played very well in both".

"And it is a great joy for me because we won against a super team, and not because they are the enemy of Inter". 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. That is the difference between the two sides at the moment. They have only had three all season and it is noticeable how many chances they leak. "I think in that game we left it a bit too late, but we learnt from it and we go again".

How good are City?

"We managed to win because we played a very, very positive match and we looked for the victory to the very end".

Dion Dublin was speaking to BBC Sport's Chris Bevan.
