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

Mourinho was involved in a post-game bust-up with Leonardo Bonucci when the Juventus star confronted the United boss for taunting the home fans.

'I don't know how long ago they lost a game here in the stadium so it's a good result, but also we have to recognise after the first goal we conceded too much'.

"A point or three would've changed little for Juventus, but three points makes a big difference to us". "But I respect Juventus, their players, the manager, the quality they have". "I'm really proud of my boys because the performance was really good".

The England winger has taken a shot at Cristiano Ronaldo's midriff-baring goal celebration on social media, after two late strikes from the English side cancelled out Ronaldo's stunning opener in Turin on Wednesday evening.

"Manchester United did nothing to win the game".


Mourinho said Romelu Lukaku would train on Friday but wanted to see how that and Saturday's session went before determining whether the Belgium striker is fit enough for inclusion in the squad. "After their goal I think we had five minutes to wake up again but the team was there was the first minute to the last".

United though had the final word as Mourinho brought on Mata and Marouane Fellaini, who helped turn the game round in just four minutes, the Spaniard bending in a free-kick from the edge of the box to give the visitors a scarcely-deserved equaliser.

A jubilant Mourinho made the most of the last-gasp victory, going onto the pitch at full-time and cupping his ear to jeers from the crowd, who had earlier cheered former Juventus player Paul Pogba on his return to Turin.

Sami Khedira and Paulo Dybala both hit the woodwork before five-time Ballon d'Or victor Ronaldo brought the capacity 41,470 crowd to their feet when he hammered home Bonucci's long pass from just inside United's half. If my mathematics is right then we qualify [only if Valencia don't beat Juventus] so I think now I leave it to the Old Trafford people.

"If we draw the gap is still nine points, if we lose it's 12, so I don't think that is the way to look at the match".
