  • Pogba criticism fuelled by envy says José Mourinho

Jose Mourinho praised Manchester United's attitude as his side ensured they have "two doors open" to the Champions League with a 3-1 win at Middlesbrough.

Boro keeper Victor Valdes, a Manchester United old boy, could count himself unfortunate to end up on the wrong end of a 3-1 scoreline.

The visitors were ahead in the first half via a Marouane Fellaini header, but they were guilty of missing some great opportunities to put the game to bed.

The win lifts United up to fifth in the Premier League while Middlesbrough stay in the bottom three.

United, who had dropped points in four of their last six games prior to today, managed to successfully hold on and were able to add a third at the death through an Antonio Valencia tap-in.

Having parted ways with Karanka on Thursday, Middlesbrough chairman Steve Gibson charged Agnew with helping the Riverside club avoid the drop.

Middlesbrough, in contrast, are left seeking a first league win since December, with crucial relegation games coming up after the break away to fellow-strugglers Swansea City and Hull City.

This week, Manchester United progressed to the Europa League Quarter-Finals against Anderlecht and moved to the fifth spot in the English Premier League. It was a day, where Rashford did not look clinical in front of goal.

While this was undoubtedly a historic moment for the club, their manager would be more concerned with their rise up the Premier League table.

United - who were without the injured Paul Pogba and Wayne Rooney and the suspended Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ander Herrera - named a three-man central defence and started with Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard in attack.

They began to play some aerial balls into the United box, hoping for some positive result, and United were not too comfortable on few occasions as well with the home team's new approach.

They are also on an 18-game unbeaten run stretching back to a 4-0 loss to Chelsea in October.

"It has lifted them all the way from sixth to sixth".

Will Man United finish in the top four?
