      Post-match comments from the Bianconeri after an impressive Champions League victory against Man United

      Juventus leave Manchester with a convincing, morale-boosting win having dominated Jose Mourinho's Man United for long periods of the game. The 1-0 victory means Juve have nine points with no goals conceded after three Champions League games.

      Here's what the Bianconeri had to say after the match at Old Trafford.

      GIORGIO CHIELLINI

      “We were excellent in the first half. Our movement was really good and we made it hard for them to pick us up. We kept the ball well too. We probably deserved to be more than one goal ahead at the break.

      “We dropped off a touch after the interval. They're a very physical side. That's something we must try to improve between now and the spring if we want to raise our game further.

      “We were a little careless against Genoa and our movement wasn't great. We have to kick on from this performance tonight and keep improving.

      “We have a fantastic squad and we need to harness our moments of form. Personally I try to conserve energy so that I'm fresh when I need to be.”

      JUAN CUADRADO

      “It always feels good when you win at a place like this, against a great team like Man United.

      “We were excellent defensively and with the players we have up front we're always able to hurt the opposition.

      “We could have scored a few more and our finishing is an area for improvement. We need to be more focused and more clinical.”

      PAULO DYBALA

      “It was a fantastic night and I'm really happy. Playing at stadiums like this and Wembley, where I scored last year, is the stuff you dream of as a kid.

      “We played brilliantly in the first half, partly because United left us some space. They sorted themselves out in the second half, as we expected them to, but we played a really good defensive game.”

      WOJCIECH SZCZESNY

      “We produced a superb defensive display. We were very organised at the back, really alert.

      “We bossed possession in the first 45 minutes and afforded them little apart from the odd counter-attack.

      “There was a 10- or 15-minute spell in the second half when they looked dangerous but they only managed a few long-range shots because we kept it tight. It's a great night.”

      LEONARDO BONUCCI

      “United left space between the lines and we were able to exploit it thanks to the movement of Dybala, Cuadrado and Ronaldo.

      “They put more pressure on us in the second half and we didn't make quite so many runs. It was harder for us to pick out team-mates in space but we still managed to keep things tight and get the win.”
