Red Devils Claim 600th EPL Win



Manchester United became the first club to win 600 Premier League games as they saw off Middlesbrough on Sunday.
Goals from Marouane Fellaini, Jesse Lingard and Antonio Valencia sealed a 3-1 victory at the Riverside Stadium, despite Rudy Gestede’s goal having threatened to prompt a late comeback for the home side.
The win was another landmark for United; while it saw the home side reach a far less welcome milestone.
Boro, who are languishing in 19th and sacked manager Aitor Karanka this week, have now lost 1000 matches in the top tier of English football.
United climb back above Everton in the table and to within three points of the top four, having played one game less than fourth-place Liverpool.
