50 PL Opponents: Middlesbrough to Nottingham Forest

To mark Manchester United facing a 50th different club in the Premier League, following Luton Town’s promotion, we’re recalling our record against each one and showing the highlights from some classic meetings.


Middlesbrough were a regular opponent of the Reds up until their relegation following the 2008/09 campaign. They did reach the top tier once more in 2016/17 but were relegation instantaneously – though now under the guidance of former United maestro Michael Carrick, returning to the Premier League could very well be on the cards. There was scarcely a game in which more than two goals separated the two of us, leading to countless enthralling encounters over the years – United’s record, however, speaks for itself, with 18 wins in 30 meetings in Old Trafford and the Riverside Stadium.
