[Video Goals] Man Utd 2-1 Middlesbrough: Pogba Completes Dramatic Late Comeback

By on December 31, 2016

Manchester United came from behind to secure a dramatic 2-1 victory over Middlesbrough thanks to two late goals at Old Trafford this afternoon.

United dominated for long spells and thought they’d taken the lead when Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored in the 38th minute only for the goal to be controversially ruled out for a high boot.

It looked that decision could cost United as Boro took a shock lead when Alvaro Negredo headed down for Grant Leadbitter to fire home the opener in the 67th minute.

However, the hosts levelled things up in the 85th minute when Anthony Martial made it 1-1 with a cool finish after being teed-up by a superb header from Ibrahimovic.

Old Trafford then erupted as United grabbed all three points when Paul Pogba headed home in the 86th minute following a lovely Juan Mata cross.

The dramatic win sees United move level on points with fifth placed Tottenham while Arsenal are now just a point ahead in forth ahead of their game with Crystal Palace on Sunday.
