Middlesbrough F.C. vs Manchester United F.C. predictions for Sunday’s English Premier League match at the Riverside Stadium. Middlesbrough playing for the 1st time in EPL since sacking manager Aitor Karanka.

Steve Agnew takes charge of Middlesbrough F.C. (19th in Premier League) for this match following Aitor Karanka’s sacking – and will hope to fare better than in his previous brief stint in caretaker charge.

The 51-year-old Yorkshireman also stepped into the breach for a week or so between the Middlesbrough reigns of Gordon Strachan and Tony Mowbray in the autumn of 2010 and lost both matches he presided over 1-0, away from home at Nottingham Forest and Norwich in the Championship.

Steve Agnew who returned to Middlesbrough F.C. as Karanka’s assistant in December 2014 following a similar spell under Steve Bruce at Hull City, must try to reverse an alarming slide into the relegation zone against the super team of Manchester United F.C (7th in Premier League).

Middlesbrough’s EPL form since Christmas has been really poor, failing to win any of their last 10 EPL matches and now they have only their North East rivals Sunderland below them in the EPL table.

Things had been better in the FA Cup, but Middlesbrough lost their quarter-final 2-0 at home to Man City last Saturday and the scoreline would have been embarrassing but for a terrific show by goalkeeper Brad Guzan.

Apart from the possible renewed optimism brought about by the change of leadership, Middlesbrough do have a couple of other things going for them in this clash.

Manchester United face a very quick turnaround from Thursday night’s UEFA Europa League match against Rostov for this Sunday English Premier League lunchtime kick-off. Middlesbrough made Manchester Utd to win 2-1 at Old Trafford on New Year’s Eve when Jose Mourinho’s team needed 2 late goals to avert an upset.

The bookies have seen Karanka’s departure as a positive sign for Middlesbrough because they have eased Manchester United’s odds for this match, but that should only serve to offer greater value for the visitors who should still be too strong for their well out-of-sorts opponents.
