Top of the table clash, our toughest test yet this season. Should be thoroughly enjoyable, so will hopefully show us what we are made of

Same XI as Norwich I'd assume unless any injuries occurred during the Preston game

We should have just that extra bit of quality in the final 3rd, didn't think 'Boro showed a great deal against the Baggies

Important that Pontus is on top of his game for this one, we need Douglas and Ayling to stop the crosses being whipped in too.

Crosses will be dangerous as will their long throws, would like to see our keeper taking ownership of anything within 8/10 meters of goal as he did at Norwich, we will obviously play as we have done and pull their donkeys at the back all around the park, hopefully football will beat the Pulis kick and rush style

Same team as Norwich, go at them from the start; if they're chasing shadows and don't have the ball, their extra physicality counts for nothing

I must admit I'm glad we won't have Traore's pace to worry about.

Martin Braithwaite has told Boro he wants to leave to go to Spain.

3 goals in 5 games this season, started well.

Seems he wont play tomorrow.

Great news.

Still got Bingo bango bongo Asombalonga who can do a job for them
And Hugill found his feet against Rochdale. so they still have fire power up top.

True.

Still a blow though.

Exactly. That guy was a nuisance.

I'm going for 3-1 United - Just hope Pulis doesn't ruin the game with a Mourinho set-up.

Feel strangely confident today :)

Boro are solid, organised, well drilled, physical and strong.

But no Traore, no Ben Gibson, no Paddy Bamford, half fit Mo Besic, no Martin Braithwaite.

No X factor like Traore is key, no real standout stars.

Got some good players still.

But a big lumbering defence, i think we can find gaps, we have done it in every league game so far.

Boro have the best defence in the league, but if you take the 4 goals off Derby that we put past them then they would have only conceded 3 goals, 1 more then Boro.

We have (amazingly) the joint 2nd best defence in the league ourselves.

Klich, Ali, Roofe, Saiz and Pablo, they have the movement, 1 touch passing and intelligence to find the gaps :scar1

Very pumped for this one , it's a massive game with the international break coming up and a win will set us up nicely .
I think our pace will be to much for them and i think they will be playing us on the counter .
Of to bed as this will be an early morning kick off for me .
