Arsenal succumbed to their fourth defeat in five league matches on Saturday, opening the door for Manchester United to leapfrog them when they take on Middlesbrough in Sunday's early kickoff. A win would see José Mourinho's men move within a place and three points of Liverpool and the top four, as the season hurtles alarmingly towards its conclusion.
It's a game United really ought to be winning, with Middlesbrough having won fewer games in the Premier League this season than anyone else. Their poor form put paid to Aitor Karanka's position as manager in midweek, with his assistant Steve Agnew having been installed in the interim. Let’s hope Boro don’t benefit from the same kind of new manager bounce as Leicester City have in recent weeks.
United will be short of the suspended Ander Herrera and Zlatan Ibrahimović, while Paul Pogba will skip this one through injury. Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind and Wayne Rooney are all doubtful. Boro have no certain absentees, though could be without defenders Daniel Ayala, Calum Chambers, George Friend and Bernado Espinoza, and striker Rudy Gestede.
