United fans react on Twitter to Fellaini's performance against Southampton

Marouane Fellaini

We compile the best reaction from Manchester United supporters to Marouane Fellaini's performance during their 2-1 win against Southampton.

Manchester United's Marouane Fellaini may have made quite a resurgence this season, but his performance last night has brought questions back about whether he is of the quality required to play for the Red Devils

United may have beaten Southampton 2-1, but their victory was largely undeserved with their passing particularly inaccurate throughout the match. 

Fellaini's display, in the heart of midfield, was amongst the worst of their players' performances, too, as he could not add any attacking intent to their play.

The Belgian was erratic with his distribution - completing just 84% of his passes - and he failed to win the physical battle in the middle of the park, leading to a lot of criticism of his performance. 

Fellaini's poor pass set-up Southampton's goal, which was scored by Graziano Pelle, and he never recovered from this mistake. 

In the end the former Everton man could consider himself fortunate to have played the whole match and he may find himself back on the substitutes' bench again in Louis van Gaal's side's next fixture. 

In the scoreline, Fellaini's poor performance was compensated for, as Robin van Persie's two strikes bailed his teammate out, but United fans had not forgotten about his showing. 

On social media site Twitter, the central-midfielder was slammed for his display and in this piece we bring you the best reaction.
