Middlesbrough, Arsenal & Man City discussed on Premier League Daily Podcast

Karanka had been critical of the club's supporters earlier this season, when they called openly for a change of tactics, and had bristled at the club's lack of activity in the January transfer window.

Thursday morning brought the news that Middlesbrough had dismissed Aitor Karanka from his post, which comes after they'd secured just one win in their last seven across all competitions.

However, his team have struggled in the Premier League this season, now sitting 19th with just four wins from 27 games.

Middlesbrough have confirmed the sacking of Aitor Karanka just four days before their clash with Manchester United.

Middlesbrough said in a statement that Steve Agnew would step up from his role as assistant head coach to take control of the first team.

"The club would like to thank Aitor for all his hard work over the past three and a half years and for the success we've had during that time", Middlesbrough said.

Man United should have too much class for Middlesbrough even without Zlatan, but he is comfortably their most prolific goalscorer, and we think they'll struggle to create many chances without him. "This club will always hold a special place for me and I wish everyone connected with Middlesbrough football club the very best for the future".

Karanka had claimed he took a lot of positives from the 2-0 defeat but neither Gibson nor fans shared his misplaced optimism.
