    Old Trafford is rocking.

    On Sir Alex Ferguson's 75th birthday, Manchester United have pulled out a performance right out of the Alex Ferguson mould.

    Going behind, injustice at a bad decision, complaining at the officials, even replacing a central defender with a striker before those two late goals.

    Its like the clock has been wound back 10 years.

  19. Marcus' moment

    Man Utd 0-1 Middlesbrough

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport at Old Trafford

    Jose Mourinho's immediate response as Grant Leadbitter fired the visitors' ahead was to cut short Marcus Rashford's warm-up and call him back to the dug-out.

    The 19-year-old has not scored since September but with Manchester United's 11-game unbeaten run about to end, Rashford could not pick a better time to break that sequence.

  20. SUBSTITUTION
