Team News: Mata, Rashford & Lingard lead the attack; Martial & Shaw on the bench

Manchester United take on Middlesbrough at the Riverside in the Premier League this afternoon in a bid to rise from seventh to fifth place. On Saturday, Arsenal were beaten 3-1 by West Bromwich Albion, giving United another opportunity to better their league position, something they have been given plenty of chances to do, failing to do it. This could be the last chance to do so and Jose Mourinho’s side needs to capitalise. Everton beat Hull City 4-0, pushing United from sixth to seventh, ending their 17 match run in the position. This weekend, United can either find themselves in fifth, or seventh. Mourinho’s side is rather depleted at this moment in time with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ander Herrera suspended, also with the recent injury to Paul Pogba and the head injury to Daley Blind against Rostov, problems can be found in a lack of reinforcement to the squad. United will have to make do with what they have, ensuring they take all three points away from the Riverside.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Smalling, Jones, Bailly;

Valencia, Carrick, Fellaini, Young;

Mata, Rashford, Lingard

Substitutes:

Romero; Rojo, Fosu-Mensah, Shaw, Darmian; Mkhitaryan; Martial

Middlesbrough:

Valdes;

Barragan, Espinosa, Gibson, Fabio;

De Roon, Clayton, Leadbitter;

Ramirez, Negrado, Downing

Substitutes:

Guzan, Stuani, Fry, Guedioura, Gestede, Forshaw, Traore

Manchester United and Middlesbrough have played a total of 125 matches in all competitions dating back to 1894. United have won 63 times, drawing 28 times with Middlesbrough scalping United 34 times; the last, albeit on penalties after a 0-0 draw in the Capital One Cup on the 28th October 2015. United beat Middlesbrough 2-1 at Old Trafford on New Year’s Eve which saw a Zlatan Ibrahimovic goal ruled out, Boro taking the lead and United scoring twice in a minute through Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba, securing the victory four minutes before full-time. United will need to have their heads about them with this manager-less Boro side looking to get themselves out of the relegation zone.
