Marouane Fellaini made a crucial impact for Manchester United against Club Brugge.

Marouane Fellaini came off the bench to make a vital impact for Manchester United against Club Brugge.

He had only been on the pitch 10 minutes when he headed home a Memphis Depay cross in injury time to seal a 3-1 win for the Red Devils.

The goal makes United's job in the second leg a lot easier and more comfortable. Having conceded an away goal, taking a one goal advantage away from home is always risky regardless of the opposition, for Fellaini to double that was huge.

It was the first action Fellaini has seen this season, having fallen into manager Louis van Gaal's bad books with a red card on the final day of 2014/15, leaving him with a three game ban.

He has one Premier League game of that suspension remaining, and so he was clearly delighted to impress his manager and make a telling contribution in last night's Champions League qualifier.

After taking to Twitter, Fellaini's contribution was praised by teammate Ashley Young, who also paid tribute to teammate Memphis Depay, who scored two excellent goals.
