PICTURE: Marouane Fellaini and Rafael named in European Team of the Week

by Sam Peoples

Marouane Fellaini and Rafael have been named in WhoScored’s European Team of the Week for their performances in Manchester United’s 3-0 victory over West Brom.

Rafael was named the official man of the match which is what his performance at right-back richly deserved. He was up and up down the right flank all afternoon, put in the cross for Wayne Rooney‘s goal and on another day, would have scored one or two himself.

Equally so, Fellaini was a real force in the middle of the park alongside Michael Carrick and gave United a real presence. His performance helped United stay strong defensively and he also had a role to play in bringing the ball forward.

So far this season, neither player has really enjoyed a fruitful campaign thanks to injuries and bad form but against West Brom, they were really impressive which is the perfect prelude to Sunday.

Against Liverpool, United need to be on top form and thanks to their performance against West Brom, both Fellaini and Rafael are almost certain to start.
