"In the second half I knew by having the two brothers on the bench - Rashford and Lingard - I knew the brothers could come in and make an impact", the Portuguese manager said after the game, as reported by Manchester Evening News. In midfield, there are two more absentees, with the game against Bournemouth coming too soon for Marouane Fellaini and Scott McTominay.
"But we can come out with some good results and it can be seen as a good month, considering [October] was probably one of our toughest months".
"Because the approach was much more defensive and with a much more defensive approach you can hide better your weaknesses", said Mourinho.
"Then you look at the players and I wonder whether some of them have agents talking in their ears because they are not performing like we know they can".
Allegri added, "We need to keep clear heads at all times, otherwise we can concede from the opposition's first cross and then nearly concede another from Cagliari's only chance in the second half". How we played in the second half was fantastic, but we want to be a "whole game" team.
"Yes, we're showing that attitude, never giving in".
"I think a few mistakes create instability".
"No matter how bad that first half was, that second half we all believed we can go and win". Indeed, the former AS Monaco prodigy has now scored five goals in his last four Premier League matches and finally seems to have gained the trust of coach Jose Mourinho.
"We were really poor, defensively bad".
Dybala got Juventus off to a brilliant start when he turned Fabio Pisacane and Luca Ceppitelli on the edge of the box and fired into the bottom-right corner despite losing his footing.
"We as players have to stand tall and the spotlight will be on us because we are supposed to be in the top four. But in the best teams you need more than that", Ferdinand told BT Sport.
