Ronaldo's Juventus off to best ever Serie A start

Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian has warned his team-mates that the Red Devils will have to deal with Juventus' tough atmosphere when they face the Old Lady in Turin on Wednesday in the Champions League.

Chris Smalling, who started in both games, has urged his side to take heart from their second half performance against Bournemouth.

It should not be considered as an impossibility that Sanchez could finally find his feet, with Martial's recent rise having come amidst his own issues with Mourinho and off the back of a hard summer during which he looked more likely to leave Old Trafford than win the manager's confidence.

Juventus are now in the driving seat in Group H and top the table with nine points gained from three matches.

After captaining United to victory over Leicester in the opening Premier League game Pogba stated he was not allowed to say certain things.


"Manchester United changed things and made substitutions, but I was pleased with my players attitudes to the game and they gave everything to the match. The first half, I think we learned from that and we showed that in the second half and on Wednesday you will see a difference". The Belgium worldwide was dropped to the bench for the win over Everton after going nine games without a goal.

Manchester United have won their last two away Champions League matches against Juventus, scoring three goals in each win - 3-2 in April 1999 and 3-0 in February 2003. You know me, I'm not someone who hammers players so easily.

"So Lukaku has not come and we chose to start with Alexis (Sanchez)". The former has a muscle problem in his left adductor while the latter has a bruised right hip. These players are not good enough to play in a club as big as Manchester United and that has been going on for years. "But it doesn't matter what happens here or in Valencia - there are two more matches to play and we can still qualify".

I thought that it was a good move from Juventus to sign @Cristiano.
