United fans react to Fellaini goal on Twitter: Ready for Chelsea?

Fellaini

Marouane Fellaini's goal for Manchester United against West Bromwich Albion polarised support on social media.

Playing up to his physical advantages, Marouane Fellaini controlled the ball with his chest as a cross came in from Angel di Maria and, moments after shifting the ball to his right, he rifled a shot into the roof of the net as he seemingly defeated West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Boaz Myhill with ease.

And with that, the maligned Manchester United midfielder changed the game.

Fellaini appeared a far more effective player than the man he replaced - Ander Herrera. And even Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal explained post-match that the player's strength was a virtue in a division that is high on physicality.

United may have only drawn with the Baggies by a 2-2 score, but such was the impact Fellaini made that fans have called on van Gaal to include the Belgian in domestic duty this weekend.

United host Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, October 26 at Old Trafford and a midfield axis of Fellaini and Michael Carrick is seemingly preferred to one that could include Juan Mata and Ander Herrera.
