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

Under pressure following a series of dismal performances, Manchester United Jose Mourinho pulled off a hugely important 2-1 away victory at Juventus reminiscent of his past as the "Special One" that gives United a huge boost ahead of the Manchester derby at the weekend.

As I said on 5 live, I would not single out any of United's players for praise.

They seem to be winning and scoring at will, and they have got so many good players their bench is always so strong too.

FW Jesse Lingard, 6 - Back in the team after seven games out but started well, finding pockets of space in the first half, particularly when United were trying to break. "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 wonderful result".

United picked up a huge victory in Turin as a late Juan Mata free-kick and an own goal from Alex Sandro stole the three points following Cristiano Ronaldo's opener.

Even as Mourinho was goading the home fans, Leonardo Bonucci and Paulo Dybala ran towards Mourinho and questioned the Portuguese tactician over his seemingly provocative gesture.

After years in the doldrums Italian clubs other than Juventus are starting to make a mark on the competition and going toe-to-toe again with the world's best.

Britain's renewable electricity capacity overtakes fossil fuels
At the start of this decade, Britain had seven times more generating capacity from coal, oil, and gas as it had from renewables. The report also looked at the rising price of power, which is now at a 10-year high, and found Brexit was partly to blame.

United have developed a nasty habit of starting games slowly - they were a goal down inside 20 minutes when Juventus won at Old Trafford - but that wasn't the case here.

It was a disappointing week for Juventus Women as we were beaten 3-0 by Milan on Sunday.

"When I work for a club like Manchester United I need to forget my past as in those 90 minutes I represent Manchester United, " Mourinho said.

And in a post-match interview with Swedish broadcaster Viasat, the United boss also settled another score.

"Now we've got to lift our heads, as we played really well and are still top of the group".

Allegri was asked if he would have reacted similarly to Mourinho.

United played better than it did when the two sides met in Manchester but Juventus had a number of opportunities and had already hit the woodwork twice before Ronaldo struck in the 65th minute. They bought that player (Ronaldo), they want to win everything, they can win everything and we are a team where numerous players didn't play big matches like this in the Champions League.
