Middlesbrough vs Manchester United as it happened: Jose Mourinho's men move into top five

Live Blog

The home side are winless in 10 games since Christmas as Jose Mourinho's men bid to keep up the pressure in the race for the top four

Manchester United continue their quest for the top four when they travel to Middlesbrough on Sunday.

Jose Mourinho's men won't have it all their own way though against the now managerless Boro after Aitor Karanka left the club on Thursday.

Steve Agnew takes caretaker charge today and will try to change the fortunes of his ailing side who currently sit 19th, five points adrift from safety.

After flattering to deceive against Rostov in the Europa League in midweel, Mourinho will be aware his side will need to improve if they are to keep up with their chase for a Champions League top four spot.

But it will be a much-changed team as Paul Pogba has been ruled out with a hamstring injury and Daley Blind is doubtful. United also have Ander Herrera and Zlatan Ibrahimovic serving suspensions.
