Scoring 38 in the Bonus Points System (BPS), the winger scored his side’s second goal, created two chances, completed four successful dribbles and was successful with 78% of 42 attempted passes.
Juan Mata (£7.2m) picked up two bonus points, with 32 in the BPS.
The Spaniard completed 93% of 31 attempted passes, five which led to scoring opportunities for the visitors, with one supplying the assist for Lingard’s strike.
Ashley Young (£5.1m) made it a clean sweep for Man Utd as he picked up the remaining bonus point, thanks to a total of 31 in the BPS.
The left wing-back made six clearances, blocks and interceptions (CBI) and six recoveries. Young also provided three scoring chances, including the assist for Marouane Fellaini’s (£5.8m) opener.
Lingard’s goal, together with a total of four shots at the Riverside Stadium, earned him top spot in the ICT Index with his highest score of the season (12.2).
Marcus Rashford (£6.4m) ranked second, thanks mainly to an ICT Threat score of 81.
Deputising up front for the suspended Zlatan Ibrahimovic (£11.4m), Rashford produced three of his four shots from inside the Boro penalty area, with two hitting the target.
The most transferred-in defender ahead of Gameweek 29, with 58,000+ new owners, Antonio Valencia’s (£5.8m) late strike means that he has produced a goal, assist or clean sheet in seven of his last eight Gameweeks.
As a result of today’s confirmation that Man Utd will play twice in Gameweek 34 – away to Burnley and Manchester City – Valencia has emerged as the top defensive target. More than 15,000 FPL managers have moved to snap him up.
Set to serve the last of his three-match suspension at home to West Bromwich Albion on return from the international break, FPL interest in Ibrahimovic will also intensify as a result of United’s "double Gameweek".
But with only three goals scored over their previous nine fixtures, and a single clean sheet in seven, Boro have struggled to tempt FPL managers.
Despite failing to net against United, Alvaro Negredo (£6.1m) did demonstrate some threat on his recall to the starting XI, firing six shots on goal.
That might help to convince his 10.6% owners to hold on for Gameweek 34, as the Spaniard seeks to improve a record of one goal in his last 10 outings.
