He did really well when he came on. Still not sure he has a future but we'll see. I've been looking forward to seeing him under a different manager, to see if he can improve. Looked more mobile and passing was quicker.
I've been critical of Fellaini but that video made me smile. The ironic cheers were pretty funny at first but soon got tiresome as he made them look foolish with every passing minute. The celebrations at the end were great.
Pleasantly surprised by his performance tonight. Looked woefully off the pace when he came on against Everton the other week. Did he play for Belgium during the international break? Surprised he didn't start if he had played as was sharper than Herrera, who was a risk. Great for him to get his first goal, could have had another.
I'm starting to change my opinion on him, i'm not convinced he'll be kept though because I can see van Gaal looking for another physical player like Strootman. After the Valencia friendly and his 45 minutes last night, van Gaal looks like he can get the best out of him and Fellaini looks like he's at least willing to fight to stay at the club.
I didn't say I'd changed my opinion of him, said I'm starting too. He was the last person I wanted to see come on the other night but he made a big impact, not just when he got near or in the box either, he was good defensively and looked more mobile than his usual self.
I don't think he has a future here but he's going to fight for it and I respect that. Thought he would have wanted to go last summer as well as us wanting to sell him, had he not got injured he probably would have left.
Fantastic. Perhaps our best player today. Did a great job on Fabregas and in other areas. Very important part in our equaliser. Starting to believe he's at the club on his own merit rather than being a manager's mate.
Best game for us so far for me, I think the pressure is off for him now and utilised better a bit further forward. I was worried a few times when he was too far forward along with Mata and Chaill just strolled into a massive midfield gap.
He's much better when we pack the midfield, he was often left exposed in a 2 last season. Very good yesterday looked really up for the fight and that's something I had previously looked forward to when we signed him initially because he was always a big prescence in big games for Everton so perhaps he could do a job in future, but as I say only if we pack the midfield.
Van Gaal on Fellaini: "He has made a great contribution and also the assist for the [Chelsea] goal. He has had a lot of time out injured but when he is fit I have played him. He has to continue with that because then I am very pleased."
Our best player for my money. 47/52 passes completed (15/18 forward, 23/24 backward, 9/10 square), 6/8 tackles, 3/3 headed clearances, 3/3 clearances. Lucky not to concede a penalty, mind. He's playing with confidence.
Useful squad option at the very least based on his last three performances.
Doing very well it has to be said, took a lot of stick last season and was the subject of booing and ironic cheering in pre-season. Proving a lot of people wrong, he didn't look like he had the fight in him last season; wasn't winning tackles, wasn't winning headers and that was unacceptable for someone who's strength is his physicality.
I think he's benefitted tactically because of van Gaal but he also looks like the player Moyes had at Everton now.
His least impressive performance since returning from injury. I thought he did okay overall, he had good moments and bad moments. He links well with Januzaj and played a few nice passes to him yesterday. 6/10 performance for me.
I didn't understand the need for him yesterday, against teams that defend deep we need better footballers, i'd imagine Herrera is still feeling his rib injury, seen some suggest he's not rated but I think the fact he was rushed back to play West Brom suggests otherwise.
