Manchester United record landmark 600th Premier League win at Middlesbrough
The 3-1 success at the Riverside Stadium was United’s 14th of the current campaign, with that return enough to have them in contention for a top-four finish.
Jose Mourinho will feel as though they should have hit the 600 win mark before now, with 10 draws having frustrated his side at times.
The Red Devils have, however, been in impressive form of late and are unbeaten in top-flight action since October 23.
Marouane Fellaini and Jesse Lingard put United 2-0 up against struggling Boro, with Mourinho’s men showing no ill-effects from their midweek endeavours in Europe. Rudy Gestede pulled a goal back for the hosts, but Antonio Valencia made sure of the points in added time after a mistake by Boro keeper Victor Valdes.
If they are to avoid setting a new low this term, then they will need to claim another five wins from their remaining 11 fixtures – with only 19 successes secured in two of the last three seasons.
