Numbers game: Middlesbrough (A)

We break down the statistics from City's 3-1 away win at Middlesbrough.

Dean Holden’s men oozed confidence at the Riverside Stadium where Nahki Wells opened the scoring inside the sixth minute with a beautiful strike away from the keeper.

Boro hit the bar through heroics from Dan Bentley but Jamie Paterson scored his second goal in as man goals, this one a rocket from a narrow angle with City in control at half-time.

And they added to relegation-threatened Middlesbrough’s pain when Wells notched home his fifth goal in City colours, before Britt Assombalonga rolled in a late consolation for the relegation-threatened hosts.
