Manchester United turned the clock back to 1999 by turning defeat into victory against Juventus with a dramatic late victory in Turin.

"So, it is a different situation but it is a fantastic victory for us - a victory that is not just about the points we lost at home, it is about the feeling of how well we played". They are a fantastic team with an incredible record at home. What Cristiano Ronaldo volley?

"And they (Juventus) are a top team for many years now".

As the first half wore on Juve asserted their dominance over United and retained possession well. "It's a huge credit to the team for keeping on fighting and never giving up".

The gesture sparked a small altercation with Juventus players that overshadowed one of the most important results of the season for United, which has struggled domestically but now has a great chance of reaching the knockout stage in Europe.

Regardless of how well they are playing, however, it's going to be very tough for them against Manchester City on Sunday.

CMHC is still touting it as good news for renters because they'd be paying more even if the new supply of housing wasn't built. CMHC forecast range is: $387,100 to $390,500 this year; $390,000 to $393,700 in 2019; and $394,000 to $398,600 in 2020.

Not to mention Alex Sandro brutally nutmegging Jesse Lingard.

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.

De Gea was called into action again as Juan Cuadrado's cross deflected off Matic and forced him into a fine save. Didn't get forward too much but perhaps it was not the night to be getting forward.

MF Nemanja Matic, 6 - Picked up an early booking for chopping down Paulo Dybala but kept his discipline for the rest of the game. And the United keeper was then saved by the post as Ronaldo's low cross found Khedira unmarked in the middle of the penalty box, but the German's shot hit the woodwork.

MF Paul Pogba, 6 - Back at the club where he made himself a star, it was one of those nights when nothing seemed to come off. One or two eye catching passes out to the flanks and won the free-kick from which Mata equalised. However, United were risky on the break. Although the Portuguese admitted that he probably should not have done that, most United fans were delighted that he did.

Marcus Rashford could have made it three, as he was sent in on goal but was denied by Szczesny. After doing the same against Bournemouth last weekend, this couldbe a turning point for them and their manager, José Mourinho.
