Marouane Fellaini came into the Manchester derby in good form after two decent performances against Olympiacos and West Ham.
Up against Yaya Toure and Fernandinho, Manchester United needed Fellaini to step up to the plate and show he was capable of cutting it with top class opposition.
However, like he was against City at the Etihad, Fellaini was outclassed and outmanoeuvred. It left a lot of United fans frustrated because for all the positives he showed against lesser opposition, Fellaini hasn’t been able to repeat that form against top midfield opposition.
Imagine if Roy Keane had been out there, watching Fellaini stroll about the place like he's enjoying a day out with the kids. He'd kill him.

Fellaini. Just not United quality really.

Bad from Fellaini tonight. Shown lately he'll be very good in certain games but definitely need something better for the big ones.

Scholes on Fellaini: If I'm buying a £27 million midfielder for Manchester United, I'm expecting a few goals.

Fellaini is a horrible footballer. In the way that a guy with one leg would be technically better than he is. Doesn't tackle or do shit

Got called allsorts during the summer for repeatedly saying we shouldn’t touch Fellaini with a barge pole. Now you can see why!
