Mourinho unsure if Lukaku can face Juventus

We can win games as we did against Newcastle or today.

"We will wait for Monday". At half-time, I thought I was the luckiest manager in the Premier League, because to be 1-1 in a half when it should be like 5 or 6-2, we were really lucky.

Manchester United remain second in their Champions League group behind Juventus, but are desperate to get something from their visit to Italy to make qualification for the last 16 less tricky. No matter how many minutes to the end of the game, we have the feeling that anything can happen.

"Defensively bad, absolutely awful".

"But one day hopefully we can go to the second half winning 3-0 and enjoy the game". It makes our games more hard. Shame, really, on those who are said to have been involved in discussing a plan that would wreak unprecedented damage on the wider game - a group which is reported to have included United.

Asked if there was an echo of the Alex Ferguson era in the never-say-die ethos of recent second halves, Smalling said: 'Yeah, we're showing that attitude - never giving in.

United are now up to seventh place in the table and within reach of the Champions League places.

Mourinho brought on Ander Herrera and Rashford just before the hour mark to great effect, with the Spaniard bringing extra energy in midfield after replacing Fred; and Rashford should have scored when presented with a glorious opportunity on 65 minutes. "And that is a fantastic quality for the team".

Mourinho's second half changes shifted he course of the game as Ander Herrera made an impact from the bench and Rashford scored the victor after he replaced Juan Mata after 56 minutes.

"Sometimes we decide that the best thing for the players is to not be on the pitch, to be protected and away from the initial pressure".

"We can take the second half to Turin and I think we will be more on the front foot and you will see a better performance in the first half".

But despite that miss by the England striker, whose first Premier League goal since September later redeemed him, Mourinho felt United delivered a much improved performance after the interval.

In what comes as frustrating news to Manchester United fans, star duo Anthony Martial and David De Gea have reportedly refused to sign new long-term contracts with the club.
