Middlesbrough vs Manchester United LIVE
Manchester United's belated win over Middlesbrough on New Year's Eve felt like a pivotal moment in the team's development under Jose Mourinho yet the Europa League contenders remain also-rans in the top four mini league.
United aren't actually sixth at the moment, though.
Everton usurped them on Saturday and should United record another draw today they would have the same amount of points as the Merseysiders but remain below them on goal difference, albeit with two games in hand.
Everton have scored a dozen more Premier League goals than United this term.
At least two top six sides will drop points this weekend and United need to finally capitalise on their rivals' shortcomings on Teesside.
