Champions League: Ronaldo hit with ban ahead of Manchester United clash

Champions League: Ronaldo hit with ban ahead of Manchester United clash

Ander Herrera was delighted with Manchester United's second-half performance in Saturday's 2-1 win at Bournemouth but conceded Jose Mourinho's men are making life hard for themselves.

Manchester United started the game poorly and found themselves 1-0 down after just 11 minutes thanks to Callum Wilson's opener.

"I think by the end of December, which is the end of the first half of the Premier League, I think we are not going to be in the position we are now". When I say defensively I just don't look to the defenders.

It was an eventful first half as each side also had penalty appeals waived away, while Cristiano Ronaldo sent an effort crashing off the left post. This is a club that is talked about more than any other and we as players need to stick together and ride out the tough times and stay together in the good and try to keep them flowing as much as we can.

Asked about his team talk at half-time, Mourinho continued: "I started off positive".

Genoa offered little, even when Piatek was sent on for former Inter forward Goran Pandev, five minutes into the second half. I think [he] was the impact in the team. "We created lots of chances and deserved to score before the 92nd minute".

"It won't be easy, it never is easy to win and we all saw that against Empoli where we struggled, because we started well and then fell asleep", said Allegri of last week's league match which Juventus won thanks to a Ronaldo second-half brace.

Although numerous Red Devils should be praised for showing passion and determination in their desire to turn the game around, not everybody was willing to go the extra mile to ensure that we left the Vitality with all three points on Saturday.

United legend and BT Sport pundit, Paul Scholes pointed out that Mourinho's 56th-minute substitution of Fred for Ander Herrera turned the game on its head. It was much better.

'Juve have shown they don't concede many goals and hopefully we can get on the front foot. "I really can't understand the kind of mentality that brings me more white hair!"

"The good thing is the team has the face of a fantastic character and the heart that the game is not over and we go until the end". We hope that in Turin we will manage to score more, but we must not forget that Manchester is a great team with a great coach.
