GOOOOOOOOAL! FELLAINI MAKES IT 1-0! The Belgium international is picked out by a great cross from the left-hand side and pulls off Fabio well. He nods a firm header into the back of the net and Agnew will be wondering how much more poor defending Boro can offer in this first half.

Fellaini’s opening goal

Middlesbrough 0-2 Manchester United

GOAL! Boro 0-2 United (Lingard)

What a great strike! It’s 2-0 to United!

Eric Bailly wins the ball at the back for United and it’s a superb counter attack from the visitors.

Jesse Lingard was invited to run forward and as the defenders backed off, he smashed it into the top corner from 20 yards out.

Superb strike and it looks a tall order for Boro now.

GOAL! Boro 1-2 United (Gestede)

Game on!

Boro have scored their first Premier League goal in over eight hours.

It comes from Rudy Gestede, who capitalised on a poor touch from Chris Smalling to hit home from six yard out.

Exciting end to come!

Jesse Lingard celebrates his goal

GOOOOOOOOAL! VALENCIA MAKES IT 3-1! Valdes slips and gifts the away side the security that they were after. A back pass into the Spanish goalkeeper is easily controlled, but the former Barcelona shot-stopper loses his footing and allows the Ecuadorian winger to run the ball into an unguarded net.

That’s a wrap!

Valdes’ error in the closing stages meant that Boro’s fightback could not be completed.

United goals came from Fellaini, Lingard and Valencia as they finally move up in the Premier League table, taking fifth spot.
