MANCHESTER UNITED, MAN-U

Manchester United beat Middlesbrough 3-1 to become the first club to record 600 wins in the Premier League.

Man Utd fans rejoice as they move above 6th for first time since December

Goals from Marouane Fellaini, Jesse Lingard and Antonio Valencia ensured the Red Devils record a nervy win over Boro side who pulled one back in the final fifteen minutes of the encounter courtesy Rudy Gestede.

The win also lifted United into the sixth position which they have been since last December, much to the delight of their fans who celebrated as their side left the six spot.

After their victory, Jose Mourinho said: “Valdes made three fantastic saves before our first goal.

“We control everything until our second goal and then they changed to play with Gestede and Negredo.

“They start putting long balls in the box.

“We decided to defend with an extra defender but I think we made the mistake of letting them push us too much into our box and then it was a fighting 15 minutes where they did’t have chances but they were close to the dangerous areas so the game was alive until the last second.”
