Afonso Alves has warned that the goals will flow after the Brazilian striker finally broke his Middlesbrough duck.

Alves scored a superb double in the 2-2 draw against Manchester United on Sunday, his first goals for Middlesbrough, though he came close against Chelsea the previous weekend hitting both post and bar.

"I´m very, very happy but I knew the goals would come." said Alves. "I just needed some time and patience, but I was not worried, even when I missed those chances against Chelsea, because I knew it was only a matter of time before I got goals."
