Fellaini, for all his elbowing and clumsy play, is one of the most mockable players in the Premier League and nothing makes social media go bonkers than the oafish Belgian. Van Gaal’s repeated faith in Fellaini has increased the rage amongst the supporters about their poor form in this campaign.
Twitter, as ever, was hot on the news of Fellaini’s removal from the starting XI and it was not long before the memes were flying around the internet like the former Everton man’s arms in an aerial duel.
The afro looks a bit better on Marouane, shockingly!

The celebrations from Manchester United fans are probably the biggest positive they are going to get this season.

Don’t be so hasty, Lewis. This is Manchester United, three points are never guaranteed.
No Fellaini ?!? 3 points for us then
Fellaini is the on-field version of Pardew, then?
Fellaini not starting. Good times…until he's our plan B when it's 0-0 at 75 mins. Comes on. Scores the winner. Gets a new 7 yr contract.

One change for United. That change is no Fellaini. https://t.co/9e8eZbiuus

The excitement of actually scoring some goals of late has made Louis van Gaal go a bit ditzy, maybe, Liam?
Absolute scenes from LvG. Actually starting Morgan Schneiderlin today and not Marouane Fellaini. Is he feeling OK?

You do realise lvg has gone more defensive playing morgan nxt to Carrick instead of fellaini. It should be Herrera.
