Juve are still odds on to qualify for the knockout stages but if Massimiliano Allegri is to bring the club their third European Cup he will have to make sure they can keep up their impressive displays for the full 90 minutes.
The celebration unfrotunately did not match up to the goal; after netting the opener, 5-time Ballon d'Or victor Ronaldo then wheeled away to celebrate simply by lifting up his shirt to reveal his chiselled six-pack to the crowd.
A definite perk of living in Turin and playing for Juventus is being able to go and watch games at the Allianz Stadium.
"I think it's always good to be the outsider, so people expect bad of us and then we surprise people", said Pogba afterwards. I could speak for a lot of young players and United fans that watched the team when he was here and the majority of us have followed him as he's moved on in his career and that's what's special about United.
The 20-year-old had been used primarily as a substitute this season but could spearhead the United attack if necessary.
"They had a few clear chances after that to win the game but they didn't and we came back".
"I think because of the venue and the importance of the game, it's one of the best [that I've scored]".
But Sanchez offers totally different qualities to Lukaku, and they were on show in Turin.
Immediately after the break, United had a chance as Anthony Martial sent an effort just wide from the edge of the box. It's a very open competition this year with several teams capable of going all the way, especially with the holders, Real Madrid, lacking Ronaldo.
And Manchester City full-back Walker clearly found the moment hugely amusing. City have scored 12 goals in their last two matches and are in unbelievable form, with Riyad Mahrez showing why he was right to leave Leicester and join a bigger club. They are a fantastic team with an wonderful record at home.
The Spaniard impressed last weekend against Bournemouth and was rewarded with a start against Juventus, helping provide more balance to the Red Devils midfield than summer signing Fred. "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 fantastic result".
