Alexis Sanchez misses Manchester United training ahead of Juventus clash

Juventus Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates with Juventus Colombian midfielder Juan Cuadrado after opening the scoring during their Italian Serie A match against Genoa

Ronaldo, despite the turmoil of explosive rape allegations that surfaced before the worldwide break, notched up his fifth goal for his new employers since his headline move from Real Madrid in the 18th minute, ironically helped by a mistake from Genoa's top-scoring Polish striker Krzysztof Piatek.

Andreas Pereira has said that Manchester United's performance against Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday has left them feeling "pumped up" for the upcoming Champions League clash with Juventus. "I'm happy to see my contract out to the very last day of that contract and I would like to stay after my contract ends", said Mourinho.

"All I am thinking about at the moment is Manchester United".

Ronaldo is returning to Old Trafford for just the second time since he left United to join Madrid for a world record fee in 2009.

"He is one of the best players of all time", added Mourinho.

Cowboys' comeback attempt clangs off upright in loss to Redskins
Washington has allowed the third fewest passing yards this year (1,235) while Dallas has allowed the ninth fewest (1,493). On the other side, the Redskins have been a seesaw so far through five games.win, loss, win, loss, win.

This was the 33-year-old's 400th career goal in Europe's top five leagues, making him the first player to reach that tally.

Juve are looking to maintain their 100% start to their Champions League campaign having taken maximum points from their opening games at home to Valencia and away at Young Boys of Bern.

And Mourinho believes Italian champions are the favourites to win this year's competition. They've been to a couple of finals, they've won Scudetti on the trot and they have a really special player, who makes a real difference as well.

With eight Serie A wins and two in the Champions League Juve were all set to extend that fine run when Ronaldo put Massimiliano Allegri's men into a first-half lead.

The Chilean was a late substitute in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Chelsea on Saturday and was in line to start against the Old Lady at Old Trafford. "We can always bounce back and change a game around and if we keep doing well hopefully more wins will come".
