Relegation fighters Middlesbrough will be hoping for a miraculous win over ambitious Manchester City in this game.

Boro are 19th in the league table with 27 points from 34 games.

They are 6 points away from safety.

It would take a miracle for Middlesbrough to survive relegation this season.

They managed to win their last league game against fellow strugglers Sunderland but prior to that win, they had 3 losses from 4 games.

At home they have lost 3 of their last 5 games, winning 1 and drawing the other.

Man City remain 4th in the Premier League table after failing to defeat Manchester United in the Manchester derby.

The Citizens have 65 points, just 1 point behind 3rd placed Liverpool who have played a game more than them.

Middlesbrough offers them the chance to keep up the pace with Liverpool and stay ahead of Manchester United.

City have 2 wins from their last 5 games, losing 1 and drawing the remaining 2.

Away from home, they have won 4 of their last 6 games in the league and they will see this as a real opportunity against a struggling team.
