FT | Game over! Manchester United add three more points to their tally as they beat Middlesbrough 1-3 away from home.

'90+3 | GOAL! | Middlesbrough - Man United 1-3. Valencia! You've got to feel sorry for Victor Valdés... The goalie wants to hoof the ball forward for one final attack as he slips away and gives Antonio Valencia the opportunity to poke the ball into a completely empty net.

'88 | Álvaro Negredo nutmegs Chris Smalling and bursts into the box, going down after a battle with Phil Jones. He's asking referee Jon Moss for a penalty, but the referee walks away from the situation.

'86 | Only on four occasions Middlesbrough have scored more than one goal this season. They're hoping to make it five, but it doesn't seem as if they're capable of really worrying Man United.

'82 | Ten minutes still to play at the Teesside and all of a sudden it seems as if Middlesbrough have still got the chance of getting a result out of this game, which is quite unbelievable. Can they get their hands together for another goal?

'77 | GOAL! | Middlesbrough - Man United 1-2. Gestede! The impossible has just happened for Middlesbrough: they've scored a goal! Chris Smalling offers them a helping hand as he deflects a De Roon header straight into the path of Rudy Gestede, who slots it past De Gea.

'74 | Middlesbrough keep loading the Man United box at the moment. Stewart Downing searches for Rudy Gestede, who heads it through to Negredo. The striker just can't get the ball under control.

'71 | The big Boro problem, that costed Karanka his job, is showing up once again. Although they try very hard, they just can't get goaols. Their last league goal dates back to the 31st of January, when Negredo converted a penalty.

'67 | Boro keep fighting for what they're worth. Gastón Ramírez curls in a very dangerous cross for Negredo, but his header flies a few centimetres past De Gea's goal.

'64 | Middlesbrough almost get back into the game quickly. Clayton crosses the ball towards Álvaro Negredo, who heads the ball goalwards, but it's easy to gather for David De Gea. 

'62 | GOAL! | Middlesbrough - Man United 0-2. Lingard! That's absolutely brilliant! What a goal from Jesse Lingard! The midfielder gets a lot of space to take the ball up front as he blasts an absolute belter into the top corner of the net.

'55 | In the second half it's been only Manchester United. They've been dangerous and showed some good passing moves, but as soon as they got close to the goal, it broke down.

'50 | Antonio Valencia overlaps Marcus Rashord and receives the ball. The Ecuadoran tries to get in a sharp cross for Lingard in front of goal, but it's cut out nicely by Fábio.

'46 | Clumsy from Chris Smalling. The centre back wants to head a ball back to De Gea nonchalantly, but completely missed it. If he timed his jump a bit different, it could've been a hand ball and a penalty.

HT | Jon Moss blows the whistle for the last time in this first half. Manchester United have been dominant, but thanks to a brilliant Victor Valdés Boro are still in this game with a shout: 0-1.

'41 | Marcus Rashford has missed a trillion of good chances to score this season and today it's not really happening for him again. He's too quick for Bernardo Espinosa, but his shot is parried by Valdés.

'38 | Gastón Ramírez has been offering Man United's defenders a tough task this afternoon. He uses his body to turn away from Eric Bailly, but his crossed is intercepted by Fellaini before it reaches Negredo.

'34 | Marcus Rashford looks very lively today, but he still hasn't got his goal. He's hoping to get in a shot from the edge of the penalty box, but it's blocked out by Barragán before Valdés is tested.

'32 | Middlesbrough almost respond really quick! Fábio wants to make up for his sloppy marking and gets dangerous in the attacking third as his cross is met by Negredo, but his header ends wide.

'30 | GOAL! | Middlesbrough - Man United 0-1. Fellaini! Finally Manchester United have made their pressure count! Ashley Young crosses the ball into the box from the left-hand side and picks out Fellaini, who escapes from Fábio's back and heads home from close range.

'27 | Manchester United are getting stronger and stronger, but once again Middlesbrough's defense, which has conceded less goals than for instance Liverpool and Arsenal, is standing firm.

'23 | A superb double reflex from Vitor Valdés! Juan Mata crosses the ball to Marcus Rashford, who seems to tap home from close range, but gets denied by the goalie. There's still a chance for Valencia to pounce on the rebound, but once again Valdés pulls off a miraclous save.

'20 | With their corner kicks, Manchester United are clearly looking to find Marouane Fellaini's head. The Belgian manages to get his big wig to the ball, but he's guarded well by De Roon and Gibson.

'18 | Manchester United have not lost a Premier League game since October, but they're still stuck in the sixth spot in the league table. Today a victory would get them away from the much-hated spot, as they'd leapfrog Arsenal.

'13 | David De Gea with an important save! For a moment Middlesbrough seemed into score, but Gastón Ramírez' dangerous effort is palmed away by the Man United goalie.

'10 | A bit ambitious from Grant Leadbitter. The Boro captain suddenly finds the ball in front of his feet and unleashes a volley from 30 metres out, blazing it high into the Riverside stands.

'7 | Rashford should've opened up the scoring for Man United there! He outpaces Bernardo Espinosa and seems to be in for a goal, but with an exquisite save former United goalie Victor Valdés rescues Boro.

'6 | The first dangerous moment inside the Man United box as Gastón Ramírez tussles with Eric Bailly. He seems to commit a foul on the Man United defender, but the referee points for a goal kick.

'3 | The last time Manchester United won a Premier League game dates back to the 11th of February, but from that point, they've only played one league game as their calendar was filled with cup games.

KICK-OFF | We're underway at the Riverside Stadium! Middlesbrough and their manager Aitor Karanka parted company this week, but will it have an effect on Boro's performance? They're hoping to shock Manchester United.
