Manchester United ensured there would be no fairytale final victory for Arsene Wenger at Old Trafford on Sunday with a 2-1 over the departing manager’s Arsenal in the English Premier League.
Taking the lead through Paul Pogba, Man United looked like dropping points after former player Henrikh Mkhitraryan equalised shortly after half-time, however substitute Marouane Fellaini saved the day with a stoppage time winner.
The three points strengthen United’s grip on second place in the table after Liverpool could only draw on Saturday.
Fellaini’s header has now re-ignited the debate on whether the Red Devils should tie him down to a new contract, with the player’s current deal due to expire at the end of the season.
While many fans are against such a deal, plenty of supporters have taken to social media in the wake of his winner to plead that the club get a new contract over the line, believing he’s an excellent plan B when things aren’t going well for Mourinho’s side.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the situation…

When are people going to realise Fellaini is a very good plan B or plan C player. I would definitely like him to stay at the club but as long as he only has a squad role within the club! #MUFC

He is good plan b off the bench. He bullied defenders n scores a few goals. Keep him

I would like Fellaini to stay at United, but only as a squad player. I like him off the bench as he’s an option, however he is definitely not a starter.#mufc
