Jesse Lingard struck a fine goal as Manchester United moved closer in the race for the Premier League top four.

The England midfielder scored a brilliant solo goal to seal all three points for United after Maroaune Fellaini had earlier given the visitors a first-half lead.

Rudy Gestede set up a grandstand finish with a late goal for the hosts but it was ultimately to no avail as Steve Agnew's caretaker tenure in charge at the Riverside Stadium ended in defeat.

Antonio Valencia added a late third to ensure Jose Mourinho's men are no longer sixth for the first time since November as they bid to secure qualification for next season's Champions League.
