"[He] was the one that changed the game by giving the team, the balance, the intensity, the high pressure, the organisation that the team didn't have until then I think he was fundamental for us". How we played in the second half was fantastic, but we want to be a "whole game" team.

"I wonder whether these public dressing downs are contributing to a fear factor in the Manchester United dressing room", said McGrath.

The Italian champions outplayed Manchester United last month at Old Trafford and the former Red Devil believes the Spaniard could stop Juventus from overwhelming the midfield again when they two sides meet in Turin.

"It was a first half that could, should be game over, 5-2, 6-2 easily, and in the second half until we scored I had the feeling we were a very unlucky team because we should score three, four, five goals".

"No matter how bad that first half was, that second half we all believed we can go and win".

Manager Jose Mourinho branded the defending in the first half at the Vitality Stadium "awful" while regular centre-backs Smalling and Victor Lindelof have had to deal with their share of criticism from some supporters. We improve some of the players that were nearly there but not there - Lingard, Alexis - these kind of players, that were already available but not yet at a good level.

Jose Mourinho said Manchester United's continual slow starts are whitening his hair after Marcus Rashford scored a late victor at Bournemouth. As games are getting tougher and tougher - I think they're closer than ever - it is often coming down to fine margins.

"We were ready for everything, I can't understand the mentality that brings me more white hair!" We've had an inconsistent start to the season and every point is huge for us.

"When we make a defensive mistake, instead of forgetting and keeping playing, it is something that triggers instability". It's a small thing but we need to get it right. Napoli were strong last season too, while Inter have a lot of quality and it's not surprising to see either of them chasing us at the top of the table.

"I love the song "attack, attack, attack", but when you lose the ball you have to have stability, and we did not have it against a good team".
