Middlesbrough signed off for the international break on a high after Sam Greenwood sealed a brilliant win over Leicester with a stunning winner. Here's how the players rated:

8 Dieng: Brilliant first half save to keep out Vestergaard and made amends for an error with fine stop to deny Iheanacho.

8 Van den Berg: Stuck to his task superbly against Mavididi. Mature performance in a position he’s still getting used to.

9 Fry: Followed Iheanacho from start to finish and the only chances the striker got came from mistakes from Jones and Dieng. Immense defensive display.

9 McNair: Outstanding alongside Fry. Kept cool despite Leicester’s threats coming from all angles.

8 Engel: The fact Leicester’s right winger Kasey McAteer was the first replaced in the second half says everything about Engel’s display. Rock solid.

9 Howson: Led by example. Tasked with keeping an eye on Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, the skipper didn’t give Leicester’s playmaker a sniff.

8 Hackney: We so often see silky Hackney but the Teessider showed his steel here. Crunched into challenges.

7 Jones: A bit careless in the first half but protected Van den Berg well and was tireless, particularly in the second half.

7 Crooks: Disciplined and hard working display. Went close with a low strike late in the first half.

8 Greenwood: Had to do the ugly stuff out of possession and stepped up with brilliant late winner.

7 Coburn: Tireless forward display against the league’s best defence. Forced Vestergaard into an early yellow card. Had little service in the second half.
