PICTURE: Marouane Fellaini at Carrington for his first Manchester United training session

Marouane Fellaini took part in his first training session as a Manchester United player at Carrington this morning since his £27.5 million move from Everton.

The Belgian joined up with the likes of Vidic, Buttner, Anderson and Lindegaard for a light session in the gym while the rest of the squad completes their international duty.

Fellaini had a successful international break himself thanks to Belgium’s 1-0 away to Scotland and he will no doubt be eager to get a start against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

There has been plenty of doom and gloom among United fans since the end of the transfer window at the start of September but a midfield duo of Fellaini and Carrick could be wonderful for United.

On paper, the pair compliment each other well with the physical style of Fellaini counterbalanced by Carrick’s collected and reserved style of play. It could allow United to have a reliable, dependable midfield duo for the first time in years.

David Moyes may have missed out on some of his main targets but Fellaini’s arrival could solve so many of United’s problem.

However, he will have to settle right into life as a United player because Crystal Palace won’t be a pushover on Saturday with Ian Holloway at the helm and the last time they visited Old Trafford, they won.
