Finally, Red Devils move up 
a spot

Marouane Fellaini scored his first EPL goal for 15 months as Manchester United extended their unbeaten league run to 18 games to move up to fifth, with a 3-1 victory at relegation-threatened Middlesbrough yesterday.

Jesse Lingard added a stunning second and Antonio Valencia a stoppage-time third, as Jose Mourinho's injury-hit side ended a 19-week stay in sixth by climbing a place.

Their latest victory saw United become the first club to record 600 EPL wins and puts them two points ahead of their nearest rivals Arsenal, boosting their hopes of a top-four finish in the race to qualify for a place in next season's Champions League. - AFP
