Fellaini wins first individual Manchester United award since his £27.5m move

Marouane Fellaini has won the October goal of the month competition at Manchester United.

It is fair to say that Manchester United fans have not yet been sold on the performances of their 2013 summer signing Marouane Fellaini.

The Belgian international signed for the club from Everton last summer, as David Moyes decided to bring him along from Goodison Park.

But so far United fans have been left stunned with the £27.5 million price-tag Fellaini commanded last September.

Despite being a regular goalscorer with Everton the lanky midfielder barely got near the net for United, while injuries have also severely disrupted his form.

Recently, that has started to change.

Fellaini has been excellent in recent games - showing why he has commanded £42.5 million in Premier League transfer fees during his career.

He was excellent against Chelsea in the 1-1 draw while, despite a late miss he should have buried, was also superb against Manchester City.

Not to mention scoring a late equaliser for United against West Brom earlier in the month. That goal has now been named the Manchester United goal of the month - Fellaini's first individual award at the club.

After also being among the three man shortlist for the October player of the month, which was won by goalkeeper David De Gea, it would appear that October has been a renaissance month for the Belgian.

Whether he can keep it up and become a pivotal member of the United team remains to be seen.
