Fellaini

Marouane Fellaini was the star of the show as Manchester United came from behind to a earn a point from the Premier League clash against Chelsea at Old Trafford in the Premier League.

Marouane Fellaini was Manchester United’s best player against Chelsea.

Yes, you read that right.

The Belgium international midfielder played the entire 90 minutes of the Premier League clash at Old Trafford.

It was former Everton star Fellaini who stopped Cesc Fabregas from playing his best football (click here to read more) and was key in United scoring the injury-time equaliser in the 1-1 draw.

The stats above do not truly reflect the brilliant performance Fellaini gave against Chelsea, but they do give a strong indication.

Against Jose Mourinho’s side, Fellaini looked strong, committed and self-assured. The 26-year-old gave United the physical presence that manager Louis van Gaal had spoken about after their 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns last week.

Fellaini is not at his best yet and there is no guarantee that he will be in the starting line-up every week, but the United star is certainly starting to recover his old form.
