I didn't want Fellaini to sign a new contract because I felt we could do better. But it's evident Mourinho knows him & plays him according to his strengths. Today I'm thankful he's signed a contract.
This is why Mourinho manages Manchester United & I manage a twitter account.
Summary of the match:
- Lindelof is adapting to life in the Premier League
- Smalling showing his form under Louis van Gaal
- Pogba was outstanding
- Lukaku has his 4th of the season
- Fellaini with another top performance
- De Gea is undeniably the best keeper in the world
"You have to understand why Jose has got him in his team."
Marouane Fellaini may not be a "silky" passing midfielder, but he's back in favour at Man Utd and @rioferdy5 outlines why 💪
Thought Fellaini was excellent once again. Won everything in the air, broke up play and distributed the ball well. Near the end of the game he was constantly speaking to players around him and making sure everyone's focused. Fastly becoming an important player for us. #mufc
Watford 0-2 Manchester United
Marouane Fellaini pivotal in both goals
Romelu Lukaku ⚽ Soft Goal
Chris Smalling ⚽ What a Finish 👌
Paul Pogba came close
Same game plan as against Burnley. 2 DMs. Full backs going forward. It's working well. 👍

Rivals will say we are back with the De Gea praise, but we can't stop cos the guy is out of this world and you should know too
Why do you think all managers love him?
Cos he carries out his duties effectively without complain and gives his 101% https://t.co/QvAktAxaFL
Pogba was immense today. Lost it 3 times..but that's nothing for someone that was completing those types of outrageous passes to open up our attacks. The moment our attackers are on the same page..we'd score those counters for fun.
Fellaini was massive. Massive.
Great 3 points.Should’ve got 3 or 4.Pogba was sensational.Fellaini is not pretty,but one useful bastard. Never thought I would see Smalling channelise his inner Zidane.And as for DDG,one bad tournament does not out do the years and years of genius. Best in the world. #mufc
I have never seen #Fellaini being so well used before! Tactically, he has been excellent for us & finally Jose is using his strengths to cover up the side’s defensive weakness; long balls to attack, without making it the main attacking style. Extremely satisfied with this! #Mufc
Fallaini, The Belgian was superb on Saturday in numerous ways. He provided vital cover for Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof. They needed it. They were getting bullied and without Fellaini, United would have drawn that match at best, or lost it.
@TerryFlewersTFT And that's the problem with us. With plyrs like Fellaini being leading men in the team, we would never win the big one. What team that has won the big one over the last few yrs wud Fellaini had been a major part of. NONE, IMO. But that's Jose for u.
