Cristiano Ronaldo looked to have haunted the club which turned him into a global superstar when he volleyed in the opening goal in the 65th minute after Juventus had dominated proceedings and struck the woodwork twice.

"I think tonight a lot of people would have wrote us off", Shaw said after the match. Martial has scored five goals in the last four games for United. Not now. Beat Young Boys at home later this month and United are as good as through. "I think in that game we left it a bit too late, but we learnt from it and we go again".

Undeterred by Ronaldo's abdominal muscles, United battled on, and got their break four minutes from time, when substitute Juan Mata curled home a sublime equalizer from a set piece just outside the area.

But Ronaldo, 33, insisted there was no reason for Juve to panic after suffering their first defeat in 15 games this season. I'm not sure United have what it takes, but you never know. City have scored 12 goals in their last two matches and are in unbelievable form, with Riyad Mahrez showing why he was right to leave Leicester and join a bigger club. This time Ahsley Young drove the ball into the box to a huddle of bodies in the six yard area. I've been really impressed with how he has managed to force his way into Pep Guardiola's plans.

Minutes later, Marouane Fellaini flicked on a free kick and the ball ricocheted around near the far post before going in off Juventus defender Alex Sandro.

Juve will rue their missed opportunities - about 3 of them - gilt-edged and afforded to them courteously by the Red Devils.

There has been more confidence and attacking intent about the team in recent weeks, looking at their best when their backs are to the wall and when they are underdogs with the vultures circling. We are not putting in consistent performances at the moment but there's still a long way to go and we still have a chance of pulling it back. "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 awesome result". Lots of work to do - it is a marathon not a sprint.
