Marouane Fellaini is looking forward to Manchester United’s Premier League clash against Crystal Palace later this afternoon.

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini is excited ahead of the Premier League clash against Crystal Palace this afternoon.

The Red Devils will host the London outfit at Old Trafford in just under 90 minutes’ time.

Belgium international Fellaini, who has been in impressive form for United so far this season, is likely to start, and he seems to be looking forward to the encounter.

United will head into this afternoon’s encounter placed 10th in the Premier League table with 13 points from 10 matches, four points behind fourth-placed Arsenal.

Louis van Gaal’s side have struggled for points and wins in recent weeks, and they will be determined to head into the two-week international break on a winning note.

Fellaini will be expected to play a key role against Palace if he starts. In five Premier League appearances this campaign, the 26-year-old has scored one goal and created four chances.

The former Everton star has also won 57% of his duels, has a pass accuracy of 86% and a shot accuracy of 57%.
