Paul Pogba says his celebrations after Manchester United's late victor against his former club Juventus felt "strange" while paying tribute to the Red Devils' staying power. United manager Mourinho also came back to the country where he'd shone at Juve's rivals Inter Milan.

Statement wins away from home in the Champions League have been in short supply since Sir Alex Ferguson retired five years ago, but this was one. I hope we arrive on time! They are a fantastic team with an wonderful record at home.

Jose Mourinho's side had looked utterly toothless in attack but after the Portuguese threw on Mata, Marouane Fellaini and Marcus Rashford late in the game they staged the most unlikely of comebacks, recalling their epic 3-2 win from two goals down in Turin in the 1999 semi-finals.

The gesture sparked a small altercation with Juventus players that overshadowed one of the most important results of the season for United, which has struggled domestically but now has a great chance of reaching the knockout stage in Europe.

The case hinges on the proper translation of the Portuguese phrase Mourinho was seen to be mouthing on camera after another fantastic United comeback - the full details of the case can be found here.

He helped his current club to a dramatic 2-1 victory over his former employers, with United digging deep to withstand Juve pressure and head back to England with all three points.

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

And, minutes later, Dybala went even closer at the other end as he picked up the ball after some neat interplay to curl an effort off the crossbar with De Gea well beaten. It doesn't bode well ahead of a trip to Manchester City on Sunday.

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.

"I think it's always good to be the outsider, so people expect bad of us and then we surprise people", said Pogba afterwards. "We stick together through the hard times and the good and we win games like this, and it puts us on a high". United will need a strong performance out of Lukaku if they are going to steal a point from the Italian champions in Turin. It was great. We know that it's a big team and, to be honest, when they scored a goal we had nothing to lose.
