Chris Smalling insists Manchester United now believe they can beat Juventus after admitting the Red Devils were in "awe" of the Italians during the game at Old Trafford last month. "They were better in the first", Herrera told BT Sport. "So I think he was really good for us".

"Defensively we were very bad".

After yet another frustrating start to the game, Manchester United once again crawled their way back, sealing all three points in the dying embers of the game.

"We've got to finish games off earlier so that we can control the situations, because it's tiring if we always play at full tilt".

Mourinho opted to introduce by Herrera and Marcus Rashford in the second half, with both players coming on in the 56th minute and making a difference in the top-flight clash.

United improved after the break, and almost took the lead when Young rattled the frame of the goal with a free-kick.

But that did not stop Jose Mourinho's side putting in a limp first-half performance which was so bad that the Portuguese even admitted that his side were "lucky" to escape from level at the interval. Cristiano Ronaldo carried Juventus to victory in their last match, scoring two second-half goals en route to a 2-1 victory over Empoli. There was disappointment at half-time as we weren't winning. "We created lots of chances, we deserved to score before the minute 90-something", Mourinho added.

"The approach [last season] was much more defensive and with a much more defensive approach you can hide better your weaknesses", Mourinho said.

Jose Mourinho was keen to stress that Ander Herrera was the decisive factor in laying the platform for Manchester United's late victor against AFC Bournemouth over the weekend.

Allegri added, "We need to keep clear heads at all times, otherwise we can concede from the opposition's first cross and then nearly concede another from Cagliari's only chance in the second half". "I think that it would galvanise us", he said.

Callum Wilson's goal for Bournemouth on Saturday was the 18th United have conceded in 11 Premier League games this season - more than West Ham, Brighton and Crystal Palace.
