There was a time when Marouane Fellaini was a joke figure at Manchester United, with many of the club’s supporters calling for the Belgian international to be sold.
That is no longer the case, however, with the powerful midfielder developing into a very important player in Jose Mourinho’s squad.
Fellaini has not started a Premier League game this season, but he has been involved off the bench, and scored in the 2-0 win over Leicester City before the international break.
The midfielder was ruled out of Saturday’s clash with Stoke City, however, after picking up an injury while representing Belgium during the recent international break.
The 29-year-old was surely the perfect player to help Man United overcome Stoke at the Britannia Stadium, and in his absence, the Red Devils could only manage a 2-2 draw.
It would be fair to say that Fellaini has now won over the Man United supporters, and many were calling for his presence during the clash at Stoke.
