What seemed like three easy points against Middlesbrough all of a sudden turned into a potential loss.
But then Man Utd woke up, stormed forward and scored twice in the last five minutes and won their fifth straight Premier League-win.
- We won, and that’s what’s most important. We’re getting better and better, Zlatan said after the game.
ZLATAN'S GOAL WRONGLY DISALLOWED
United took charge of the game from the first minute and could have/should have scored in the first half. Mkhitaryan had a few chances, Martial, who was amazing in the first half, hit the post and in the 38th minute Zlatan scored a great backheel-goal. BUT the referee wrongly decided Zlatan's high kick interfered goalkeeper Valdez and disallowed it. 0-0 at halftime.
MIDDLESBROUGH TOOK THE LEAD
Man U kept going for the goal in the beginning of the second and Middlesbrough were on their knees. Zlatan got a great chance, but Valdez saved. Martial shot from distance but with the same result. Instead Boro went up and scored in the 67th minute. Negredo headed the ball down to Leadbitter, who shot the ball past De Gea. 0-1 to Middlesbrough, and alot of pressure on United.
GREAT MORAL - GREAT COMEBACK
The minutes passed and the frustration kept building up for United-fans all over the world. Mourinho took Smalling off for Rashford and went gung-go, and it paid off. In two incredible minutes United scored twice and won the game! First Zlatan assisted Martial to 1-1 in the 85th minute and two minutes later Pogba made it 2-1 with his head, on a great cross from Mata. Amazing comeback, Man Utd won 2-1 and took their fifth straight Premier League-win.
