Like most foes who go to Juventus, United had been outplayed, but they still played well enough to stay in the game as Rodrigo Betancur, a 21-year-old midfielder who cost only €9 million (Dh37.75m), impressed as much as he had at Old Trafford.
"The thing that is a massive eye-opener for me now is I remember when he first came his talent was arguably one of the biggest talents that we've seen at United for a long time; to have him and Wayne [Rooney] in the same team was unbelievable when you look back".
The turnaround began when Juan Mata scored from a free kick four minutes from full-time, having been brought on as a substitute by Jose Mourinho in the 79th minute. His late involvement in Sandro's own-goal victor for United wasn't enough to make Pogba stand out. I know millions are happy with the win.
"We are the real Manchester United also in the bad moments because we have to recognise that we have had bad moments and we have to improve", the Spaniard added.
This time he had another win to celebrate, after watching his team fight back from Cristiano Ronaldo's spectacular opening goal.
"And I think even if this game doesn't end with victory I would have the same feeling that the team played really, really well from the first minute against - I repeat - a super team."
DF Luke Shaw, 7 - Fantastic header clear to deny Cuadrado the chance to score.
Lukaku's injury means he is a doubt for Sunday's trip to Manchester City, so Sanchez might get another outing at the Etihad.
Outside of one draw, Juventus have won every game they have played this season.
Lindelof has looked far more assured, particularly in European games, in recent months and he will have to be on top of his game when he goes up against City's Sergio Aguero, who has scored seven Premier League goals during this campaign.
The Portuguese was in his element winning at the home of his former fierce Serie A rivals, charging onto the pitch to taunt the home fans in Turin by cupping his ear as United players and supporters celebrated a win gained by Mourinho's decisions from the bench.
Whatever competition they are playing in, and whoever they are playing against, you just can not bet against them and I am always expecting them to score two or three goals.
