Fielding a weakened team and playing its third game in six days, United looked like easing to victory after goals by Marouane Fellaini and Jesse Lingard - a spectacular strike from the edge of the area - put the visitors 2-0 up by the 62nd minute. Before the final whistle, Antonio Valencia made it (3-1) after Victor Valdes slipped and gifted Valencia the goal.

Mourinho became United boss last May, having had five months out of the game after being sacked by Chelsea half a season after winning the Premier League.

It was a similar story for Liverpool, whose disappointment at losing two points will be tempered by the knowledge that teams around them have to play a lot of games against each other. Fourth place is now in sight for the Red Devils.

You won't see too many better goals this weekend than the one scored by Jesse Lingard against Middlesbrough.

MIDDLESBROUGH: Valdes, Barragan, Espinosa, Gibson, Fabio, De Roon, Clayton, Leadbitter (Gestede, 67 mins), Ramirez (Traore, 67 mins), Downing, Negredo.

Each and every Monday during the season, Manchester United star Juan Mata pens a personal blog in which he reflects on his past week both on and off the pitch. "It's really hard to score a goal for him, but his movement is top class, his dynamic is second to none". The rebound falls to Valencia whose shot from a tight angle is palmed away to safety by the former United no 1.

Maroaune Fellaini opened the scoring with a header at the back-post to give United a slender lead going into the break. Rashford is causing the hosts all kinds of problems but his finishing is letting him down. A flawless strike from Lingard doubles United's advantage! Gestede gives Boro a lifeline! The first Premier League, the constant Premier League title since.

The England global has not hit the back of the net in the Premier League since September 24 but Mourinho insists he is happy with the youngster's performances. Goals from Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli in each half extended Tottenham's unbeaten home record as they claimed a 10th successive league win at White Hart Lane.

Boro's four wins in the league all season is a poor return given some of the attacking talent available, including former City striker Alvaro Negredo, England global Stuart Downing and Frenchman Rudy Gestede.
