PEEP! PEEP! THAT IS FINALLY THAT!

Middlesbrough 1-3 Manchester United 

Well, Well, Well. That was some match. Traore may have been the most exciting player on the pitch - but he came in too late to materially impact the game. Valencia, Lingard and Fellaini have finally pulled the Red Devils out of the dreaded 6th positon. They are now 5th in the league and slowly, but surely, on the way up. 

'twas great coverin this match, thanks for reading. 

G'day all! Anirudh Menon signing out. 

Toodle-ooo!
...
94' That's that. Darmian is coming on for Rashford. The most pointless substitution of all time. 
...
OH MY VALDES. The Spanish keeper makes a complete meal out of it as he slips in the process of clearance... Valencia proceeds to walk the ball into the net. Happy 200th game, big man
...
93' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOALL!! VALENCIA! 
...
91' Bailly and Gestede engage in handbags - the Englishman tries to bully Bailly, but that is just not happening. Boro win a corner off the freekick. 
...
90' FOUR MINUTES STOPPAGE TIME. Adama Traore wins a superb free kick off Carrick with a moment of sumptuous skill
...
89' Smalling is simply giving up when up against Gestede in the air. The Boro striker wins it yet again, and the ball is worked out to the left. de Roon swings it in, Gestede wins it off Fellaini but Smalling finally gets a good block in - to stop Negredo's acrobatic effort
...
88' OW OW OW!!! NEGREDO DOES SUPERBLY TO CRUYFF TURN CHRIS SMALLING AND NUTMEG HIM IN THE PROCESS ... PHIL JONES SMACKS INTO HIM. GORGEOUS TACKLE!
...
87' United are sitting back, and Middlesbrough are simply not doing enough to penetrate the red fortress. 
...
86' Boro are readying a final assault here - you can just sense that is the calm before the storm
...
84' When Traore gets on his scooter, it's so hard to stop him. Carrick tries, but does it illegally and Boro look to build up pressure. Clayton gives it away by playing a wayward ball 
...
82' Young brings out at a tackle off the top drawer to stop Barragan from barging forward. de Roon then concedes a cheap freekick to Carrick. A breather for United... this sitting back thing is not woking for United 
...
80' MARTIAL ON, LINGARD OFF.
...
79' Lingard is on the ground, and he looks likely to be replaced by Anthony Martial. Gestede meanwhile is getting patched up after what looks like a tiny thigh strain
...
Gestede knocks it back into the six yard box, De Roon wins the header, and Gestede taps the ball in from five yards. THIS GAME ISN'T OVER YET
...
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOALL!!! GESTEDE!!!!!! GAME WELL AND TRULY ON!
...
77' Barragan gets in behind Young, but Jones powers a header out... Traore has it, and every time he has it, United's defenders are on their toes. Traore sends it out to Downing...
...
75' Fellaini tries to win a corner off the beleaguered Bernardo, but the defender does well to win a goal kick in its stead
...
74' Gestede and Negredo are creating all sorts of issues in the box, but the former's lay off is just a little too heavy for the Spaniard.
...
72' Traore teases, tantalises and absolutely fools three, THREE, United players and his cross is headed down by Gestede - but Bailly blooters it clear. 
...
71' Barragan runs down the right, and Negredo is just an inch or so away from tapping it in...
...
70' The corner is rubbish, and De Gea tries to release Rashford on the break, but Fabio does well to mop it up 
...
69' Adama takes the ball past Young with a spectacular swivel of his hips. The boy is RAW TALENT... meanwhile Mourinho puts the bus into reverse gear as he takes off Mata and brings on Rojo.
...
68' Multiple substitutions for Boro: LEADBITTER OFF, GESTEDE ON; GASTON RAMIREZ OFF, ADAMA TRAORE ON
...
67' AIY AIY! Negredo almost gets on the end of a de Roon cross, but the header goes just wide
...
66' Lingard runs straight at the defence yet again, and tries to play in Rashford this time. A great tackle from Barragan ensures that the worst doesn't happen for Boro
...
64' Barragan finally gets in an accurate cross, but Negredo's header is straight at De Gea. Bailly did well to make sure he put Negredo off. 
...
WOOOOOOOOOOOT!!! WEMBLEY BOY YOU SAY? Lingard runs straight at the middle of the Middlesbrough defence and around twenty yards out he ABSOLUTELY BLOOTERS ONE IN! SUPERB, SUPERB, GOAL!
...
62' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOALL!!! LINGAAAAAAAAAAAAAARD!
...
61' Barragan pumps in a long ball straight at Mata... but United proceed to hand the ball over almost immediately. 
...
60' Gibson has been Boro's best defender today, and he intercepts Rashford again. Valencia then goes on the other end and stops Ramirez from creating mischief down the right.  
...
58' Lingard runs onto the ball, but Barragan does well to hold his ground. Boro are pushing United back here, and the away side would do well to NOT sit too deep. 
...
56' Rashford runs on to the ball on the right, and then proceeds to blooter a cross all the way across to St. James' Park. Ugly.
...
55' Ashley Young, who has been impressive today, rampages into the box, but his ball into the box looking for Rashford is well cleared by Gibson. The left-back has also been United's best defender. Don't know what that tells you about the rest. 
...
54' Jones, Smalling and Bailly have been horrific today. Fellaini, on the turn and inside his own box does superbly to pick out Lingard. The Englishman unleashes Rashford behind the defence, but Bernardo and Gibson do enough to usher him away from goal
...
53' Jones and Smalling almost get into a tangle, and hand over the ball to the home side for a corner. Ramirez's corner, though, is straight to De Gea
...
52' Smalling almost sells his keeper short with a ridiculous back pass, but thankfully for him there's no Boro player sniffing around. Lingard is bullied off the ball by de Roon but the Dutchman gets away with it. 
...
51' Lingard tries to slip Rashford in on the right, but its got too much juice on it even for the Flash
...
50' Lingard and Valencia march down the right, and Valencia's cross is deflected off of Gibson and back off of Valencia for a goal kick
...
48' Carrick and Smalling leave Ramirez in a heap at the edge of the box, but it's only a corner... which Fellaini thumps away. Fabio is then given a good talking to after going into a challenge with a one-footed tackle that hammered into valencia. He got away there only because the Ecuadorian jumped back up to his feet immediately.
