Manchester United fans react on Twitter to Marouane Fellaini's performance

Fellaini United

Marouane Fellaini was handed a starting spot by Manchester United against Cardiff City.

Marouane Fellaini's slow start to life at Manchester United has been well documented, with manager David Moyes admitting it has not gone to plan so far.

Michael Carrick's prolonged injury absence is now looking likely to hand him a regular spot in the starting line-up, so was there any improvement against Cardiff?

Fingers are naturally going to be pointed after the Red Devils slipped to a late 2-2 draw, but the Belgian was heavily involved throughout.

Here are some key stats from his display:

- Fellaini won more aerial duels (8) than any other player on the pitch.

- He touched the ball 75 times, only Chris Smalling and Peter Whittingham did so more, both 76.

- Fellaini's passing accuracy of 83 per cent was higher than any of his midfield teammates.

- He was also dispossessed three times, more so than any other United player.

- His four tackles was the joint highest, along with Smalling, of any United man.

So what did fans make of his performance? Here's a look via Twitter...
