The world’s most expensive footballer scored an excellent header a minute after Anthony Martial had equalised following Grant Leadbitter’s opener at Old Trafford

Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba kick-started the New Year’s Eve celebrations for Manchester United with late strikes as Jose Mourinho’s men saw off a spirited Middlesbrough 2-1 at Old Trafford.

United were well worth a victory that they looked to have been denied for long parts of the game by poor refereeing, dogged Middlesbrough defending and Grant Leadbitter’s goal.

However, Mourinho eventually came out on top in the battle with his former Real Madrid assistant Aitor Karanka with a late comeback straight out of the playbook of Sir Alex Ferguson, celebrating his 75th birthday in the stands.

Mourinho may well have been readying himself for a post-match whinge after referee Lee Mason controversially denied Zlatan Ibrahimovic a first-half goal before Leadbitter put Boro ahead on his first start of the season.

However, Martial’s finish and Pogba’s header arrived within two minutes of each other to spark a frenzied atmosphere and move United a point behind Arsenal.

Boro were left to rue having just a second away win of the season cruelly snatched away from them, with a home fixture against champions Leicester City providing little respite for a side now just two places above the bottom three.

Adama Traore wasted a gilt-edged chance in the third minute for the visitors, shooting woefully wide after leading a three-on-one counter-attack.

Pogba hit the post with an overhead kick as United responded, but Traore remained a fleet-footed pest on Boro’s right, zipping past Daley Blind and Chris Smalling before George Friend’s resulting shot was blocked after he had passed on an open-goal opportunity first time.
