Three thoughts from the J Stadium as two late goals gave Man United a 2-1 win Wednesday at Juventus.
He still needs to sharpen his fitness and intensity, but if he gets the game time, Sanchez can still be the big-game player Mourinho expected him to be when he signed him.
"I told Ash: 'Please let me take it, because I can go over the wall'". After United's 1-0 loss to Juventus at home two weeks ago, he responded to the goading of the Italian fans by holding up three fingers toward them, denoting the treble of titles - Champions League, Serie A and Italian Cup - he won with Inter in the 2009-10 season.
"They have fantastic players and are a top team".
This time he had another win to celebrate, after watching his team fight back from Cristiano Ronaldo's spectacular opening goal. "And especially there is always a lot of negative comments about us but hopefully they might say something positive for once, because I think we deserve it, the team deserve it, the manager deserves it for getting this incredible result".
Juve remain in control of Group H on nine points, sitting ahead of United (seven), Valencia (five) and Young Boys (one).
United looked confident in possession in the opening exchanges but it was Juventus who had another chance shortly after as Rodrigo Bentancur's shot from outside the box was deflected behind for a corner.
It's unclear exactly what was said, but it's clear he was provoked.
"The love that they showed me today was unbelievable and how great is football when you see that?"
The Portuguese superstar immediately ran to the corner flag, lifted up his shirt and pointed at his impressive stomach muscles.
Allegri raised his eyebrows and gave a smile of appreciation at the goal.
He brought on Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini with 11 minutes left and United deservedly behind to a Cristiano Ronaldo wonder goal, and both were instrumental in the turnaround, Mata whipping home the equaliser and Fellaini flicking on a cross that Sandro eventually nodded into his own net.
Sandro's night may have ended in misery but the Brazilian had a moment to remember as he got past Lingard by putting the ball through his legs on the wing during the first half.
