Jesse Lingard explains why players are not celebrating Juventus victory


Two late goals for Jose Mourinho’s men sealed an unlikely win over the Old Lady in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

After Cristiano Ronaldo had put the home side ahead in Turin it looked like they would add to their tally and go on to win the game.

But inspired substitutions from Mourinho changed the game, with Juan Mata netting a sublime free-kick before Marouane Fellaini caused havoc in the Juve defence and an own goal from Leonardo Bonucci sealed the win.

And Manchester United now look likely to qualify from their group with a win over Young Boys at Old Trafford could see them progress.

The Red Devils now go into Sunday’s Manchester Derby full of confidence following four wins in their last five games – but Lingard insists they can only get better.

Pep Guardiola’s City have started the season in imperious form, winning all but two of their Premier League games so far.

United shocked the champions in the same fixture last season, coming back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 at the Etihad.

“We are enjoying our football, enjoying winning games and enjoying the pressure of playing in big games, big Champions League matches,” he said.
