However, the Red Devils did not give up and managed to grab two goals inside the last five minutes to give themselves a memorable win in Turin.
Juan Mata levelled the tie with a fine free-kick before Paul Pogba helped bundle the ball across the line with the help of Alex Sandro to give them all three points.
Fans were ecstatic with the result and the performance of one man in particular on social media.
Supporters took to Twitter to laud about the display of Victor Lindelof as he managed to put on a class showing to keep the Italian outfit at bay.
Alongside Chris Smalling, the Sweden international defender made important decisions throughout the game and is starting to impress.

Here are some of their reactions:

Martial and Lindelof so impressive again, Herrera is integral to this team. Alexis certainly coming good and pressure off the manager. City next, beat them and we’re knocking on the door of top four for me. #mufc

Only positives to take from this game. Everyone played their part, EVERYONE! Lindelof was fantastic and has become our most reliable CB lately, him and Smalling are really doing well.
Mata, Martial continuing their form. Dave world class as always. Impressed by Sanchez as well.😄

Not long ago a lot of people were saying Lindelof is the worst defender to ever play for United. Well, just a few weeks later, he’s proving everyone wrong! Another solid performance, gaining confidence and consistency #MUFC

Martial FC still eating Gucci
Lindelof was immense
Pogba had a bad game, wasn't hiding tho
De Gea remains no. 1 undisputed
Mata's free kicks are sublime.
Matic remains woeful, needs to be dropped
Herrera is a big game player
Sanchez had a decent game
Bring on city
