"Because the approach was much more defensive and with a much more defensive approach you can hide better your weaknesses", said Mourinho.
Jose Mourinho's team is slowly climbing the ladder, as they will be a month and a half away from their last league loss by the time the Manchester Derby starts next weekend.
A 92nd minute victor from Marcus Rashford gave United a deserved away win.
The 61st minute goal was the difference between the two sides until eight minutes from time when Super Eagles forward and Arsenal substitute Alex Iwobi setup French striker Alexandre Lacazette for the equalising goal.
Jose Mourinho eventually hauled him off in the 56th minute with Ander Herrera entering the fray.
"I think Juventus, we started the game a bit in awe, we were off the pace and they were on the front foot but the second half we showed we could give them a game", Smalling said.
Taking on West Ham, Newcastle United and Wolverhampton Wanderers respectively, the 26-year-old faced 17 shots on target in October and produced 17 saves to join Ederson, who made just three stops, as the only other keeper to boast a 100 percent save record.
Mourinho criticised United's defending in the first half as a disaster.
"We were defensively bad".
It's hard to pick a worst player for the home side, however Lewis Cook won't want to see United's first goal of the game, as Martial drifted off the midfielder to find space in the area before scoring before half-time. "It starts at the back, and as a team collectively, and we will be working on it every day". With Ryan Fraser and Callum Wilson being incredibly unsafe on the attack this season, Bournemouth has the most goals scored so far this year outside of the Top 4.
Following the win, Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri said that the team could now focus on Man United, but expressed worry over the fitness of some key players. It's a great feeling and it's bringing us closer together.
