"If we draw (the gap) is nine, if we lose it is 12, I don't think this is the way to look at the match", he added.

The Red Devils travel across the city to face their "noisy neighbours" at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon as they bid to win a fourth-straight match in all competitions. "And I think even if this game hadn't ended with victory I would have the same feeling that the team played really, really well from the first minute against a super team".

The United manager said that after three consecutive wins, including an impressive victory over Juventus in midweek, Pep Guardiola knows he is in for a "difficult match".

Ronaldo scored his first Champions League goal for the Serie A giants with a tremendous volley in Turin, but they were beaten despite a dominant performance.

"We played with that and we scored two goals like this".

"I was insulted for 90 minutes". In the first 15 or 20 mins we were totally in control'.

Jose Mourinho has said Manchester City are "untouchable" on the eve of the derby but avoided questions about allegations the Premier League champions have circumvented financial fair play (FFP) rules.

United now sit in second place in Group H, two points clear of nearest rivals Valencia who downed Young Boys 3-1 earlier on Wednesday to keep their own bid for the last 16 alive.

Juventus had proved wasteful with Sami Khedira and Paulo Dybala both hitting 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.

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.

It didn't take a lot to convince Ashley Young.

"I was happy for the goal but I am a little bit disappointed", Ronaldo told Viasport.

Mourinho confirmed striker Romelu Lukaku is back in training after missing the club's last three matches, yet it remains to be seen whether the Belgian forward will get back into a United team that has showed more attacking fluidity in his absence.
