Middlesbrough 1 United 3 - Post-Match Fascinating Facts

Six facts to get you thinking.

• The 3-1 victory against Middlesbrough may have given Manchester United their 600th Premier League win, the first club to reach that milestone, but it also saw Middlesbrough hit the 1000th top-flight league defeat mark, Middlesbrough became the 14th side to reach that particular milestone.

• In netting the second United goal, Jess Lingard scored his 5th Premier League goal for Manchester United. However, in other competitions he has scored 6 in total.

• The opening goal of the game, scored by Marouane Fellaini, ended a 30 Premier League game run for the Belgian international without a goal.

• Continuing with Marouane Felliani, of his 33 Premier League goals, 13 have been headers.

• When Jess Lingard crashed home his superb effort from outside of the area, it was the 6th goal Manchester United had scored from outside the box in the Premier League this season. Last season they managed 5.

• Jose Mourinho chose to go with a back-three, the first time he`d chosen this option since 2011 when he was in charge of Real Madrid.
