Manchester United's Ander Herrera admits Manchester City are derby favourites

Jose Mourinho also had his say on the win after the match, harking back to Manchester United's win against the Italian champions in 2003.

The result lifts Manchester United into second place in Group H, two points behind Juventus, who have amassed nine points from four matches.

"I think it's always good to be the outsider, so people expect bad of us and then we surprise people", said Pogba afterwards. "I didn't insult them". A point was the least they needed to have a chance of qualifying for the last 16 but winning was incredible, and now they are in a strong position to make the knock-out stage. "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 incredible result". "The most important thing is the three points".

Juventus seemed certain to be heading for all three points, with United struggling to carve out clear-cut scoring opportunities, but Mata hit a free kick into the top left corner in the 86th minute and that seemed to inspire Jose Mourinho's side.

Sandro's night may have ended in misery but the Brazilian had a moment to remember as he got past Lingard by putting the ball through his legs on the wing during the first half. "It's a huge credit to the team for keeping on fighting and never giving up".

United looked confident in possession in the opening exchanges but it was Juventus who had another chance shortly after as Rodrigo Bentancur's shot from outside the box was deflected behind for a corner.

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

That is the opinion of talkSPORT host and former Manchester United striker Alan Brazil.

"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".

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. The club's greatest ever performance saw them come from 2-0 down there to triumph and reach the Uefa Champions League final in 1999.

Whatever competition they are playing in, and whoever they are playing against, you just can not bet against them and I am always expecting them to score two or three goals. But even so United won and that was a good sign.
