Paul Ince scares the hell out of Harry Redknapp as Manchester United leave it late

Punditry pandemonium.

Mikey Stafford

As you probably know by now Manchester United left it ridiculously late to reverse a 1-0 deficit against Middlesbrough.

Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba scored in the 85th and 87th minutes respectively to cancel out Grant Leadbitter’s shock opener.

Jose Mourinho’s men have now recorded six straight wins and the manner of this New Year’s Eve escape will have warmed the cockles of watching birthday boy Alex Ferguson.

But it was Boro’s opener that provided the moment of the match over on BT Sport.

Harry Redknapp was giving what could only be described as a jaundiced opinion on Swansea’s performance against Bournemouth when Paul Ince let out a blood-curdling shriek.

There had been a goal in the United-Boro match, you see. Incey just couldn’t verbalise who for.

Chris Sutton prompted him that Leadbitter played for Boro and Incey was away, earning his corn.

Seemingly caught off guard a little he began to describe the play before blaming United keeper David de Gea for leading with his feet.

Sutton, one of football’s most entertaining pundits, was having none of this and a good row ensued.

BT Sport Score… it’s where it is at of a Saturday afternoon.
