Premier League leader Manchester United will try and avoid stumbling at Middlesbrough on Sunday. The game on Sunday is a dangerous one for United considering that Middlesbrough always plays them tough and because the Boro is playing better of late. They should have gotten a point against Chelsea and played Arsenal to a draw. Afonso Alves gives Middlesbrough a scoring threat that could worry United.

Three Way Line – United -250, Middlesbrough +600, Draw +300, Total 2.5
Earlier this season Middlesbrough beat Arsenal and held Liverpool to a draw. The game on Sunday at Riverside will not be an easy one for United. Stewart Downing can provide scoring as well as Alves. Schwarzer is a goalkeeper that can make excellent saves. Boateng is a solid midfielder and Aliadere is a former Arsenal forward that can make an impact.
Manchester United is playing great though, having won six English Premier League matches in a row, scoring 18 goals and giving up only one. They easily took out Roma in the first leg of their Champions League match this past week. United is getting great play lately out of Cristiano Ronaldo who is the top scorer with 36 goals for the season. Middlesbrough will attempt to contain him with Luke Young who played well against Chelsea.

Manchester United will be without defender Nemanja Vidic after the Serbian injured his knee against Roma. Middlesbrough will be without Mido who will miss the rest of the season after undergoing a hernia operation. They are also without Robert Huth who has a foot injury. Middlesbrough will get midfielder Fabio Rochemback back from suspension for Sunday’s match.
In the last five games at Riverside, the Boro has held their own winning two of the five matches. Three of those five matches also went over the total. Middlesbrough has been a huge under team of late though as they have gone under in 9 of their last 10 matches overall.
